Break out the champagne and ring in the New Year with good cheer and incredible food at the annual James Beard New Year’s Eve Celebration dinner! This year, ICC was given the honor to host and our very own Chef Marc Bauer, Senior Director of Culinary & Pastry, has planned an exquisite menu for the evening. Inspired by his hometown of Alsace, Chef Marc and the students from ICC will prepare a 5-course dinner, with wine pairings, that will bring French culinary traditions to the Beard House for a festive end-of-year feast!
Several kinds of cheese donated graciously by Murray’s Cheese will be highlighted throughout the meal including 3lbs of gorgonzola dulce, 1 lb of clothbound cheddar, 4 lbs of Parmigiano-Reggiano, 2 lbs of Aged Fontina, 2 lbs of Taleggio, 2 lbs of mozzarella, 3 lbs of aged manchego, 2 lbs of aged goat cheese, and more! Check them out at Murrayscheese.com.
Each course will be paired perfectly with a unique wine, listed below for reference. The dinner will begin promptly at 9 pm on Sunday, December 31st. Reserve your spot while tickets are still available! Click here to learn more.
