We are excited for you to join us for a very special evening, "Cozy Up, à la Française": A Winter Wine Tasting & Dinner at Pairings Events in North Easton on Wednesday, January 25th, from 7-9 PM!

Winter is a time to indulge in rich, satisfying foods (and matching wines, of course) and we are totally here for it! This dinner is a celebration of one of the best things about the season-the food!

Pairings Events is a culinary studio owned by Kristin Kay and Chef Jonathan Kay. They will team up with Bin Ends' own John Hafferty and Jodi Stern to guide you through a fabulous, multi-course, French-inspired meal made with many ingredients sourced from Easton's local farms and paired with five classic wines hand-selected by John and Jodi.

We will kick off with a casual reception featuring passed appetizers paired with sparkling wine, followed by a sit-down dinner that includes three fabulous courses paired with stunning wines from the south of France. Check out the menu!

Pairings Events owners Kristin and Chef Jonathan Kay are a husband and wife team with a passion for food and hospitality. Pairings Events was created in 2020 when they were craving the presence of friends and loved ones. Being served food and wine and hearing laughter gathered around a table sounded like a far-away thought. They wanted to bring the restaurant experience directly to your home, and that’s what they continue to do. They are excited to now offer cooking classes to share that passion and knowledge with the community.

Chef Jonathan creates customized menus, utilizing local seasonal ingredients and sources only the highest quality meats and seafood available. Kristin creates tablescapes, custom menus, and floral arrangements tailored to the client’s taste. Wine pairings carefully selected and explained per course make each dining experience fun and educational. Pairings Events is a full-service catering company that specializes in small, intimate dinners, large celebrations, or corporate gatherings (from Pairings Events website).

Be transported to a French country home in the middle of L'Hiver and experience a fabulous meal in a one-of-a-kind culinary studio with industry insiders who share a passion for hosting, hospitality, cuisine, and fine wine.

The event is limited to 20 guests.

A Bin Ends retail sales offering of the evening's wines will also be presented.
