The March meeting was held at West Boca Community High School. It was a joint meeting with the Palm Beach chapter. The student competition and the tasting was a great success. Chef Ray Willey mentored one team for the tasting, creating a Chicken Cacciatore. Students Hannah and Jorge were shown how to break down a chicken which was the intent as an educational opportunity.
Next month's meeting news is forthcoming.
The February meeting was held on Monday the 13th at Mojo Restaurant and Lounge. After a brief business meeting, attendees participated in an educational presentation by Philippe Bellande from Scavi & Ray Winery. Philippe introduced Scavi & Ray, shared the differences between other "Bubbly" such as Champagne and Cava (do you know the difference?), all while enjoying a tasting of their Prosecco Spumante DOC, Moscato and Lambrusco. Door prizes were awarded after a short knowledge quiz. All the while, we were taken care of by the Sean of Mojo's, who provided water during the tasting and wonderful service as we ordered an array of appetizers and main dishes - all served with Scavi & Ray beverages that were offered from the bar. Many thanks to Philippe Sr. and Jr., Chef Dom and Anthony!
Our next meeting will be held with the Palm Beach chapter. Details to follow!
