Red with meat, white with fish -- where's the love when it comes to pairing wine with foods that aren't critters?
Vino 100, the unassuming little wine shop and bar in Cave Creek, has an event to answer that question.
From 6:30 to 8 p.m., Friday, October 28, Vino 100 will be hosting a Wine Dinner Vegetarian Extravaganza. The seven-course, wine-paired meal includes vegetarian delights like bruschetta with white bean paste, tomato chutney, and reduced balsamic glaze; vegetable pasta roll with kale and pecan pesto, and cranberry pecan lime tart.
See the menu and get the details after the jump.
