A Nantucket Culinary Debut - The Truffle Revolution

For the longest time, Americans have savored the coveted truffles harvested in European countries. After generations of unsuccessful cultivation in North America, the elusive black truffle is now embarking on a quiet revolution here on our very own culinary turf.

Thanks to the American Truffle Company’s founders Robert Chang and Dr. Paul Thomas, 'black diamonds' are now being cultivated in several truffle orchards around the country.

Join us as we welcome co-founder Robert Chang to our establishment where he will discuss the Truffle Revolution’s progress of two of the world’s most expensive culinary ingredients, the black winter Périgord truffle (Tuber melanosporum) and the black summer Burgundy truffle (Tuber aestivum/uncinatum).

To complement your truffle experience, Geoffrey Loisel of Champagne Billecart-Salmon will provide a sampling of champagnes that will pair perfectly with a three-course truffle-inspired tasting menu prepared by Relais & Châteaux Chef Gabriel Kreuther of the Michelin-starred Gabriel Kreuther restaurant, New York City.

Explore the Terroir of Pinot Noir - Willamette Valley, Oregon

An area of rich soil and misty mountains, the Willamette Valley is recognized worldwide for its Pinot Noir.

Meet Scott Shull, a self taught wine maker having learned by "doing" since 1989. Scott strives to craft wines that are interesting to the palate and to the mind—wines of complexity, finesse and place. Scott uses grapes grown in vineyards that represent the great diversity of soil types and mesoclimates in their corner of the northwest Willamette valley, and takes care to separate individual blocks within vineyard designate wines, with the belief that microclimates within vineyards will yield different expressions of pinot noir.

J. Christopher, named after Jay Christopher Somers, will bring his Old World style of vineyard management and winemaking — a style that resulted in wines that taste more like the Burgundies he loves to drink. J. Christopher Pinot Noir is made to reflect the diversity of where it is grown, focusing on the Pinot Noir which highlight three individual AVAs within the Willamette Valley.

Paired with Chef Greg, this meal will complement each aspect of the terroir of the Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs.

Limited to 24 people.
