Wine & Dine: Chile

Print
For this month's Wine & Dine event, we highlighted Chilean wine and cuisine. It's a wonderful cuisine that is heavy with seafood dishes, squash, corn, quinoa, olives and potato. Taking a lot of influence from Spanish cuisine, it's not really spicy but rather pretty mild. Our Chilean dinner was full of so many dishes and flavors, all working nicely together and even better with the Chilean wines we had. Here's our menu we enjoyed, which made for a fabulous Chilean evening...
