There are still a few seats available for Bambara restaurant's monthly "Wine Mix & Mingle" - an ongoing series featuring lively libations and camaraderie.
On Thursday, June 2nd, from 6 to 8 PM, Bambara will host winemaker Melanie Krause of Cinder Winery in Idaho's Snake River Valley for a tasting of 4 Cinder Winery wines accompanied by 4 food pairings, plus snacks, from Chef Nathan Powers.
Of her Idaho roots, Cinder winemaker/owner Melanie Krause says, "Growing up in Boise, Idaho I spent most of my time in the garden, the kitchen or up on the ski hill. My parents have a huge garden that I worked on with my brothers. I fell in love with cooking using the huge variety of homegrown (and organic!) ingredients from our garden. The garden included a collection of 40+ varieties of grapes! If I wasn’t in the garden or the kitchen then I was hurtling down the ski hills of the Northwest, as a member of the Bogus Basin Ski racing team. I still love to ski…although I’ve even gone over to the “dark side” and snowboard with my husband…but my parents still love me."
The cost for WIne Mix & Mingle is $50 for food + wine pairings or $30 for food only. Reservations can be made by calling 801-363-5454.
