Argentinian Pop-up Dinner

Back by popular demand! The June 10th Intimate Dinner by visiting Chef Pablo Ranea wass a great opportunity to get together with fellow members and friends, to enjoy wonderful food and wines from Argentina! 

In May 2016 we had two back to back dinners that sold out within days. The attendees to these dinners can attest to the tasty, fresh, beautifully presented, mouthwatering dishes that were paired to perfection with delicious Argentinean wines! An experience worth repeating! 

Many thanks to Chevalier Matt and Diane for hosting this unique affair!


Vive la Chaîne!

About Chef Ranea (see more information on the attached PDF):




Every year, after celebrating the end of the harvest season in their native Mendoza, Chef Pablo Ranea and Architect Alejandro Cohen pack their suitcases full of spices, miscellaneous ingredients and a spirit of adventure in search of new challenges and inspiring localities.

Together, they bring their unique take on food pairing and gastronomy to different cities in the U.S. and other countries. Whether the backdrop is a private garden, a cookery school, a restaurant or a hotel, the carefully-designed menu will showcase the best of Latin American cooking techniques and recipes paired with the best wines.

This unique experience benefits from well-tested recipes gathered on their extensive travels. In the United States they have brought their unique dining experience to San Francisco, New york, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles.

Travels in Finland, France, Denmark, Dominican Republic and Peru have also informed and added to their repertory.
Friends gather around a table with a common desire to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience of the aromas, tastes and textures of Argentinian and Latin American cooking; its wines, history, and enchantment. Pablo and Alejandro preside over a traveling kitchen of unique experiences and through them, oenologists and winemakers share their most exclusive labels for adventurous diners around the world. 

 “Argentina produces marvelous wines along the entire strip that lies between the 22° and 44° latitudes, from Salta to Patagonia. My mission is to show that Argentina is much more than Malbec”, Pablo affirms.
