Wolf Blass Partners Dine Inn Home Chefs for Wine Pairing Dinners In April

Wolf Blass has partnered five home chefs from Dine Inn food platform in a series of Private Chef’s Table dinners as part of the Australian wine label’s Find Your Flavour campaign to change existing mindsets towards having wine with local food.

Pairing wine with food should be based on the sauce instead of the proteins as the food in the region tends to be more sauce-heavy compared to western cuisines.

[Updated 25 March 2020] Due to the stricter advisory issued by the Ministry of Health, Wolf Blass and Dine Inn have made adjustments to the private dining dinners. They will be converted to a home delivery service with a group chat set up to facilitate discussions with diners who wish to share their table set-up with the group. Wine glasses, tasting mats and floral table decorations will also be sent with the delivery before 7.30 pm.

Three bottles of Wolf Blass Gold Label wines and one bottle of Wolf Blass Grey Label wine worth S$191 in total) will be sent per pair of diners. Solo diners will be provided with two bottles of Wolf Blass Gold Label wines (worth S$84 in total).

From 5 Saturdays from 4 April till 2 May 2020, different home chefs will showcase their best local dishes ranging from Reinvented Traditional to Local Fusion and Contemporary Peranakan cuisine. The dinners will be held at 103 McNair Road Townerville. Each session can accommodate up to 16 people with eight on each table.

We had a preview of the Private Chef’s Table session and had 28-year-old Yeo Kai Siang cook up a four-course Neo-bistro dinner. Dinner kicked off with yam gnocchi (算盘子), fermented red cabbage, garlic sprouts, Abalone liver and Kani miso sauce that went very well with a glass of Wolf Blass Gold Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (91 points from James Suckling). The generous, medium to full-bodied wine has a fragrant, intensely varietal nose.

A Teochew style seared duck breast done two-ways and braised with Osmanthus Sauce served with yam rice. The main was a serving of beef short rib that has been braised for 16 hours served with burdock root, chilli oil and cashew butter with grilled greens.

And we had a Kaya Toast with pandan and coconut ice cream, toasted coffee angel food cake, gula Melaka and Cafe créme to end the meal and more wine.
