ORIN SWIFT CELLARS WINE DINNER
Friday, March 10 | 6:30pm | Ray’s at Killer Creek
A four course dinner is for amateurs. A five course dinner is just fine. But six courses? Yeah that’s what we’re talking about. Mike Fuller, the executive chef at Ray’s at Killer Creek, has prepared six courses that pair perfectly with various vintages from California’s Orin Swift Cellars. From oysters and pickled shrimp to duck prosciutto, Kobe beef ribeye, Colorado lamb and Mexican chocolate tiramisu, this is no ordinary wine dinner.
