Trilliums and Wine: Complementary Pairings

Dates:April 26, 2019
Meets:F from 5:30 PM to 7 PM
Location:Main House Lecture Room 1
Instructor:Robert Raguso
Fee: $29.00

Great wine and food pairings either emphasize the similarities or highlight the differences between the wine and food. Dr. Raguso studies the floral scents of native plant species, including trilliums, a core collection at Mt. Cuba Center. Trilliums are noteworthy for NOT smelling like conventional flowers, with fragrances that evoke wine, cheese, fruit, and spices. He has assembled a "flight" of Mt. Cuba trilliums and several wines that would complement their woodsy aromas. Explore the chemistry and ecological value of various trillium scents and take note of the pairings you like. (Ages 21 and over)
