A Christmas story: festive wines and dishes (Bucharest)

A Christmas story: festive wines and dishes (Bucharest)

The month of December is knocking at the door, and we think you should open it because it brings in the month of joy, the month when you spend more time with loved ones, the month of gifts, the month of childhood.

Because it is a special month, we also come with a festive proposal: on December 13th, 2023, we invite you to "A Christmas story: wines and festive dishes" tasting.

This time we have Adriana Sohodoleanu, gastronome and beauty lover, with us. We have known and followed Adriana for several years and for some time we have connected and planned a wine & food tasting together for the festive month of December. 

Winesday comes with proposals for festive wines and Adriana comes with a menu inspired by Constantin Bacalbaşa. "In 1935, after writing down his memories of the Bucharest of yesteryear, Constantin Bacalbașa, journalist and politician, turned his attention to gastronomy and published "Gastronomic Dictatorship. 1501 dishes" from which I selected five to introduce you to the Christmas atmosphere as tasty companions to the wines chosen by Carmina." says Adriana.

We also needed a good place to put the special tasting menu into practice, so the event is taking place at Băcănia Veche Delicatese & Grădină where Marius Tudosei's team works wonders and will prepare our special menu.

This being the last tasting organised by Winesday in 2023, we also have a suprise: Santa Clause will prepare gifts for all the attendants to the tasting. Baroque Books & Arts publishing house is with us again and offers part of the gifts, but under the tree there will be other surprises related to wine and good mood.
