I'm pleased to announce that on August 28, 2010 I'll be cooking and giving away free slider burgers at the Sparking Pointe Winery in Southhold NY (North Fork of LI). Event starts at 1pm.
These burgers will feature the famous house blend of chopped meat from NYC's Pat La Frieda meats, and will be topped with the most amazing cheese called Snofrisk, which is from Norway, and Rock Chive Cress. Snofrisk is much like cream cheese but is made from 80% goat milk; I first served similar burgers in June 2010 at the James Beard House. Since then these Snofrisk burgers have become increasingly popular. I'm bringing enough meat to make 200 sliders, starting at 1pm. So come down, check out the burgers, the music (live music by Ray Penney) and the Sparkling Wine...
Sparkling Pointe happens to be the only winery in New York State who exclusively produces Sparkling Wines. All vintages are made in the Methode Champenoise Style, respecting the traditional methods of making French Champagne. Since its birth in 2001, Sparkling Pointe has gained national recognition, winning the Sweepstakes Award at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine competition for the Best Sparkling in America in 2008.
Since the Sparkling Pointe tasting room has been open, in October of 2009, it has been voted as one of the Top 5 Venues Outside of NYC by BizBash Magazine.
Specially for August 28th, these burgers will be topped with Rock Chive Cress, a micro vegetable from Koppert Cress which is also located on Long Island.
