Regular price $70 Unit price  per 

Who doesn’t love a good ‘food porn’ movie?  ‘Big Night’, ‘Chocolat’, ‘Eat Pray Love’, ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’; all have a place in our food porn viewing list.  But our favourite is ‘Chef’.  Jon Favreau wrote and directed this 2014 film that tells the story of a high-end LA chef who loses his job, and rediscovers his love of cooking with a food truck.  It’s a lovely little film that captures the excitement of food, and the joy of doing something small and unique.  It speaks to what we are trying to do here at Dancing Swallows.

To celebrate the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration (i4C) weekend we will be hosting two seatings of a special “Chef and Chardonnay” outdoor dining experience, with a menu inspired by the movie ‘Chef’.  We’re talking small plates of Tostones, Cubanos, Arroz Con Pollo, Texas Smoked Beef Brisket, plus more, all served in our outdoor tasting area with some exceptional Chardonnays (and one Cab Franc).

Date: Friday July 23rd / Saturday July 24, 7 to 9PM
Location: Dancing Swallows Vineyard, 8704 Howard Ave, Amherstburg
Price: $70 plus HST

P.S. ‘Chef’ is currently showing on Netflix Canada.  If you haven’t seen it, check it out.  If you have seen it, it’s worth a rewatch.  Just have a good dinner lined up for afterwards 😊

NOTE: This is the Designated Diver - Food Only option for our Chardonnay and ‘Chef’ Outdoor Dining Experience - no wine is included, but we will have non-alcoholic beverages available.
