On Thursday, May 21, Wine + Beer and the Santa Barbara Public Market invite food and wine enthusiasts to a Margerum Winemaker Dinner in The Kitchen at the Public Market.

Julian Martinez, head chef at Barbareno Restaurant, and his team will partner with Doug Margerum, winemaker and owner of Margerum Wine Company, to offer a locally inspired pairing menu, reflective of the California Central Coast.

Margerum’s regionally indicative wines pair perfectly with Martinez’s inventive style and dedication to using only local and seasonal ingredients. This intimate culinary affair is a rare opportunity for wine and food lovers to indulge in some of Doug Margerum’s most acclaimed wines and the innovative menu that they inspire.

Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Margerum Riveiera Rosé of Grenache 2014 and a selection of hors d’oeuvres including Santa Maria Tartare, Ranchero Scotch Eggs and Santa Barbara Sea Urchin.  Dinner begins with a fresh Stone Fruit Salad, with Drake goat cheese, fennel vinaigrette and mahlab, paired with Margerum Sybarite Saubignon Blanc 2013.

Next, guests will indulge in a Spring Rack of Lamb, with dukkah spice, beets, sun-dried black olives and lime-rose gastrique, paired with Margerum ‘M5’ GSM Blend 2013.

The dinner ends on a sweet note with Olive Oil Brioche Beignets with pistachio marzipan, cherry and amaro, paired with Happy Canyon Vineyards Piocho Red Blend 2011.

The Margerum Winemaker Dinner is $95 per person. Advance reservations are required. Please call 805.770.7702 to reserve. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
