We regret to say that we have had to cancel this event.

After the wild success of this event in 2019, Master chef and UC Davis distinguished alumnus Martin Yan is returning in 2020 to offer new dishes in another “Chinese food and wine pairing competition.” This special event will feature tastes of several classic Chinese dishes paired with selected wines recommended by two experts, Dr. Andrew Waterhouse, Executive Director of Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science, and Mr. Darrell Corti, owner of Corti Brothers Market in Sacramento.

Vote for your favorite wines! Guests will select the best food-wine combination in a friendly competition between those offered by our two wine experts. 

The menu is mainly non-vegetarian and contains several dishes with shellfish.

Please call (530) 754-1243 or email for questions.

Tickets: $75
