Science of Food and Wine

We all know that food and wine have a magical love affair going on but we don't often think about why that is. The answer, of course, is chemistry! Let go of what you thought you knew and come dig deeper into the surprising science behind how food and wine interact with our palates! From the simple balancing act between chemical components to the recent investigations into the molecular science of aromatics and flavor, its the most delicious kind of science class.

We are excited to welcome our presenter for the evening, Elle Andrews.  Elle knows her wine ~ just ask the patrons of Corn Hill's Flight Wine Bar what the best wine in the place is and most of them will tell you it is whatever Elle suggests for them. Her love of wine began while studying abroad in Europe and today she delights in sharing her passion and knowledge of viticulture and enology with customers, friends and family. To put some official recognition to her obvious experience, Elle is continuing her study with The Court of Master Sommeliers with an eye to add another female member to the elite list of Masters. In addition to holding a degree in education she is also a member of the Society of Wine Educators and the Guild of Sommeliers. Her goal? "To make learning and exploring wine understandable, approachable and fun!"

Registration begins at 6:30 PM.
