DINNER FOR 300 - Trio of Privy/Chase Chinese Wine Dinners Test Perceptions and Delight Palates in LA, SF & NY

By Privy Editor

A collaboration between the chef and sommelier, each 100-person wine dinner uniquely featured a precision pairing of different Chinese cuisine and wines from around the world.
