Big Table Farm is going to the James Beard House!!!

so the James Beard Foundation is kind of the foodie version of the Oscars - They invite chefs to cook at the James Beard House in New York City and administer the annual James Beard Foundation Awards, which recognize and honor excellence among chefs and others working in the food and beverage industry. So Chris DiMinno the Chef of Clyde Common here in Portland is doing a meal June 16th and has invited us to pair our wines with his meal!! it's a great honor to pour our wines at this very prestigious place and for it's dinner guests along side of Chris' great cooking! so I'll be flying back for the meal - does any body have a couch for me to sleep on in the village - I promise not to take up to much room. And if your in NY book it should be a great meal!!!
