Wine Dinner: Aberdeen and Aries Wine & Spirits


This in from Tony Russo, owner of Aries Wine & Sprits:

It’s The Year of the Pig and you are invited to pig out with us as we celebrate Chinese New Year at Aberdeen’s in White Plains.

The food is traditional Hong Kong Cantonese and the wines we have chosen to pair with them are truly international. We worked very hard putting together this dinner (what a tough job we sometimes have!) and we are confident you will find some wow combinations as you eat and drink your way through this multi-course banquet.

What sets Hong Kong Cantonese cuisine apart from other Chinese cooking is that everything is cooked fresh and sauces are minimal to allow the flavors to shine through, according to Aberdeen’s owner Ricky Ho. We agree.

No “Lobster Cantonese� drowning in sauce here. Aberdeen’s also has a well deserved reputation for the “Best Dim Sum in Westchester� so our celebratory feast will start with a course of dim sum paired with sparkling wines.

Tables of 8 will be seated around revolving lazy susans to facilitate tasting and discussing the pairings.
