A great night of wine and history for CCC!

We raised $2000 and counting… Great success at New Delhi Restaurant for Legends & Legacy Wine Dinner! Delicious food by Chef Ranjan paired with wines from Heraszthy Family Cellars! #CompassionateChefsCafe #SpritzSF #IndianCuisine #NewDelhiRestaurant Big thank you to DJ Amar Solunamar for donating the sound system for the evening and to Colin Hussey for capturing all the beautiful pictures.

Legends & Legacy Wine Dinner: Only a few tables left!

Seats are going fast for the Legends & Legacy Wine Dinner with Heraszthy Family Cellars on July 6th. In addition to fantastic wine, wonderful food and the combined entertaining powers of Ranjan and Val Haraszthy – we’ve added a variety pack specialty beers from Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon to our silent auction.

More about the beer: You may not be able to time travel, but your taste buds can! This variety pack of four aged specialty beers from Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon will take you back to 2014, when America was obsessed with Ebola and the Ice Bucket Challenge. These limited edition barrel-aged beers were purchased shortly after they were bottled and have been kept at cellar temperatures ever since. These beers are meant to be aged, which is why they are dipped in wax and boast a “best after” date on the label. While it may seem sacrilegious, we recommend mixing The Abyss and The Dissident for a special cocktail we call “The Abyssident.”

Val is donating a 3-liter bottle of something delicious from his cellar AND! there is a beautiful piece of fine art available to the highest bidder.

This fantastic painting has been created by famed Indian artist Uma Shankar, using a combination of paint and semi-precious stones. This piece is one in a series depicting scenes from the Madhushala Collection – or The House of Wine.

Tickets to the wine dinner are $125 per person, inclusive of 8.5% tax and 18% service charge.
