Healthy eating is taking over the world one Whole Foods at a time. Short Order's very own Camille Lamb even
This Friday, June 14, Whole Foods Coral Gables will hosting an elegant (and healthy, duh!) three-course dinner with wine pairings. Haven't you ever heard a glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away?
The three-course dinner is Greek and the wine pairings are a mix between white, red, and sweet, to accompany dessert. Don't worry, that's healthy too. The menu features the following: traditional Greek salad with cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, red onions, red and yellow peppers, marinated artichokes, Kalamata olives and feta cheese, tossed in a light lemon herb dressing -- paired with a 2011 Paso Robles Sauvignon Blanc; marinated grilled chicken kebabs or grilled lemon rock sole over roasted garlic and herb orzo pilaf with grilled seasonal vegetables -- paired with a 2011 Landmark Chardonnay & 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon; and Baklava topped with Greek yogurt, grilled peaches and a drizzle of honey for dessert -- paired with a 2009 Obtuse to end the night of a sweet note.
At $30, the meal is more affordable than s simple visit to Whole Foods. And in case you don't know too much about wine, don't worry, the dinner comes with a lesson. Justin Vineyards specialist Gil Hicks will be there to meet, greet, and discuss the product of the family-owned and operated winery that will be paired with all of the offerings.
Dinner begins promptly at 7 p.m. and pre-registration is required. It can't be taken over the phone. One must visit customer service. Ah, the complications of eating at Whole Foods.
