Chef Gorji Spring Cooking Class & Wine Dinner

Best steak in Dallas

Called one of the best steaks in Dallas —Dallas Observer

Wine dinner with Big Pinot Noir wines and “best steak” highlight of the sold out May 23rd spring cooking class.

Held every three or four months, this in-demand event was mostly filled up in the first few days after announcing the date.

It was a fun-filled evening with Chef Gorji the back-to-back Texas Steak Cook-Off Champion revealing the secrets to his award-winning steaks, which the Dallas Observer review called “one of the best in the metroplex.”

Wine Dinner Menu

After the spring cooking techniques class a three course wine dinner was enjoyed by the class participants. The courses were comprised of the dishes they just learned in the class. The first course was an appetizer of a grilled chilled avocado with yogurt and topped with Texas chili. A 2012 Hensel, Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley accompanied it. The second course was a smoked salmon and arugula salad with red onion, diced boiled egg, diced tomatoes and lime vinaigrette. A 2013 Inman Family Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley was served with it. The prime beef tenderloin and gnocchi gorgonzola sprinkled with pomegranate seeds was the third course served with 2012 Merriman Pinot Noir from Yamhill-Carlton, Oregon. In attendance was Shasha Beard, certified sommelier with Pioneer Wines and Michael Merriman of Merriman Vineyards gave insights into the wines and answered questions.
