NYC: Thurs., 2/27 6:45 PM Kochi - Wines to match 9 course tasting

#1 Post by Juliec » January 24th, 2020, 10:33 am

The theme is wine selected around food focused dinner. $75 pre-fixe 9 course tasting menu. Asian fusion. Lends itself to Old and New world wines Burgundy/PN, Syrah, Rhone blends, etc. May lend itself to some Italian reds. (Majority of 6 courses are appetizers, fish, chicken, 2 are pork and beef, 1 is dessert)

Okay reservations made, penalty of $25 per person if the reservations are cancelled or changed within 48 hours of the resy. I’ll finalize the Feb 26th reservation on Mon. Feb 24.

Thurs., Feb 26 at 6:45 pm
1. Julie (may be a couple mins late) - 2017 Bernaudeau Blanc Les Ongles & 2015 Peay Scallop Shelf And/or othr PN.
2. Diane - 2010 Boxler Sommerberg Riesling
3. Tony - 2008 Passopisciaro Contrada Sciaranuova
4. Julius - Champagne
5. Rich (Prob not due to emergency) - bojo
6.

Waitlist/Standby:
1. Jay ??? - i haven’t heard back. If you see this, please post or pm.

Cant make it: mike reff and likely Rich
** Note: I’ve changed the title of this offline post a couple of times due to the changing dates, people’s preference of date, and nature of this wine dinner. Personal preference, I like to update the first posting including the title and the most current information about the offline. The posted items within the thread may include the various titles/iterations as this post and title has evolved over time. **

Sorry about that. I forgot. They do accommodate gluten to an extent, sub regular flour with potato starch or flour with a little notice (but usually you need to book way out. A month or two). I forgot about the gluten in soy sauce is hard to avoid; and that’s not gluten friendly. — can always try food/wine pairing at another place. Feel free to recommend or create an offline. (May retire this offline planning hat. I may be better suited as a attendee.)

Interesting offline.
Googled and some courses may pose a challenge.

Mike: Wines that don’t suck... (j/k). Theme: Wines that pair with the Korean tasting course dinner. Basically doesn’t clash with Asian food -aka soy sauce. Included are veggie dishes, beef, fish, through dessert.
The theme could get narrower if the group wants to Burgundies/Loire/Beaujolais, or CA wines , Syrahs, World wines, was trying to make it as accessible as possible but perhaps that makes it less useful or interesting.

Paul: don’t want to steer you wrong, best to check with the restaurant direct on corkage.
Ramon: last time I went brought a 2010 Chardonnay and a 2012 Pinot Noir and it seemed to work with the courses. Thought I would leave it up to group to come up with what they would like. Could even pair or team as a group and just bring a 2-5 bottles. What courses are challenging?

So far there appears to be a spark of interest from Mike, Ramon and Tom.

Okay, for those interested, please let me know if Tues., 2/18 at 6:45 PM works for you. Otherwise, please send an email or propose alternative dates. We can setup 2 if there is an oversubscription to the first date. Need to get an idea of Month and day of week that works for people. Thanks!

Done. Got feb 26th. That works better for Diane as well. I’ll join if there is room at the end. Have 2 reservations. For Tues feb 18th and Weds., feb 26th. times are slightly different. will probably take 25 deposits when the time gets closer since reservations can’t be cancelled or modified without penalty a couple of days before the reservation date.

I'm sorry, it's just me being presumptive without actually tasting the foods first. I saw pickled onions and soy vinaigrette describing couple of dishes and I immediately thought about having just beer (or Soju). Looks like a lot of fun, enjoy!

Also saw this and have to ask, what is tiger's milk?

No worries Ramon. I don’t remember the last ingredient in the meals I have had at kochi at all. Not sure. Maybe a pun.

Leche de tigre, or tiger's milk, is the Peruvian term for the citrus-based marinade that cures the seafood in a ceviche. Also known as leche de pantera, this leftover fish runoff usually contains lime juice, sliced onion, chiles, salt, and pepper — along with a bit of fish juice.

I am a firm maybe. I will be going to Falltacular in California the week before and will probably have a boatload of work backed up, so do not save a spot for me, but if someone wimps out at the last minute, I may be able to fill in.

All, confirming that this is a go. Let me know if there are any changes to your availability to attend, and perhaps start declaring wines so that everyone knows what to expect.

Hmmm.. well diane sacrificed to move to the dinner from weds to thurs. It was not her preferred date. And tom rippe dropped out since he couldnt come on thursday...

Kochi is a very popular place and tough to move groups as large as ours from one night to another. I wish I knew this a few weeks ago...

Jay, I think you made it off the wait list. Can you let me know if you think you will make it.

All, I'm going to drop in mid dinner. :) and I'll pack a wine...

I am still good for Thursday 2/27. If we are short on attendees, I might be able to get a fellow wino to join us. Haven’t decided on a wine yet but will give that some thought.
