Taste of DinDin Party: A Winter's Night Of Pairings

A Winter’s Night of Pairings Preview

Taste of DinDin Party is a special event where the company is the host. At these events, we showcase amateur and professional chefs who are hosting DinDin Parties to give people an idea of what a DinDin Party experience is all about. 

Our first Taste of DinDin Party focused more on DinDin Party Hosts who are amateur chefs. For A Winter’s Night of Pairings, we’re showcasing two up and coming professional chefs, each of whom is creating a 3-course fine dining experience.

Chefs Connor and Ashley Sprig of Thyme CateringChefs Connor and Ashley of Sprig of Thyme Catering are becoming two of the most sought after millennial private chefs in Dallas. They are both classically French trained, and both also studied abroad in Orvieto, Italy for a summer after culinary school. They love fusing cuisines together in creative ways and specialize in private dinner parties throughout the DFW area. Recently they served a dinner party for one of the top multi-billionaires in the city! And now they will serve you at our special Winter’s Night of Pairings event. 

We’re also pairing these amazing chefs with a sommelier who will pair each of their three courses with a specific wine to bring out the flavors and complement the palate.

But for a Winter’s Night of Pairings, we’re taking pairings a step further.

The sommelier will also pair each course to each guest’s personal wine preferences. So at a Winter’s Night of Pairings, we will pair the food with the wine, and the wine paired with you! 

How can we do that?
