The Big Apple will soon get a taste of Wine Country tonight - Santé, the Michelin-rated, San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 dining room at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, has been invited to cook a Sonoma-centric menu at New York City’s celebrated James Beard House on March 26, 2015.

An invitation to cook at the Greenwich Village townhouse is considered one of the food world’s greatest honors. Its associated James Beard Foundation oversees the annual James Beard Awards, which are akin to the restaurant industry’s Academy Awards.

“We’re ecstatic!” boasts Executive Chef Bruno Tison, “As a Chef in the Sonoma Valley it is impossible not to be influenced by the local produce, products and culture of the area. Chef de Cuisine, Andrew Cain has expanded his cuisine well beyond the borders of his classical training and has created his own moniker culinary style. We promise to surprise and delight our James Beard House guests. The chance to return to New York* is an unbelievable creative opportunity for us.”

Chefs Tison and Cain and their culinary battalion will fly to New York City where they will prepare a one-night only menu titled “A Taste of Sonoma”. The regionally sourced five-course menu and bespoke pairings from Domaine Carneros and Kosta Browne is outlined below:
