It’s time to eat well. OK, it’s always time to eat well. But Taste of Hartford offers the chance to do so for $30.16 and try some amazing multi-course menus in Hartford. Here’s the full list of participants, plus the menus for Trumbull Kitchen and Max Downtown!
So, yes, make a reservation, go “taste.” It’s a good time for your mouth (and your wallet).
And now, let’s discuss bubbles.
The good folks at Max Oyster Bar were kind enough to invite me – and guest! to a lovely, multi course tasting of the cuisine of Head Chef, Hunter Morton, paired with the the expertly produced champagnes from one of the oldest establishments of the region: the Taittinger Group. Hunter’s food pairing ranged from oysters and caviar to prosciutto wrapped veal loin. The bright, creamy and well balanced acids of the selected champagnes cut through the rich proteins like a well balanced piano wire through a stick of butter (an elaborate metaphor perhaps but try a glass of champagne and rich, well executed dish and tell me if I’m wrong). Visually appealing vegetables helped the champagnes with their balancing act, and regional brand representative Christian Dalbavie of Taittinger was on hand to introduce each varietal and walk guests through its distinctive tasting notes. Below is a visual tour of our incredible meal. Please enjoy. We certainly did.
