Laurent-Perrier has been the Champagne sponsor of In Vino Vita for five years now, and National Accounts Manager Kathleen Poyser and husband Patrick have become good friends to this event and Fox Chase. We are pleased to welcome them back this evening and look forward to seeing who wins this unique and delicious offering.
It's a battle of the pairings! You and seven guests will win an exclusive Laurent-Perrier "High Low Tasting." This in-home tasting will include four Laurent-Perrier Champagnes (two bottles each of Ultra Brut, La Cuvée, Rosé and Grand Siècle) paired with your typical "high end" foods such as fine cheeses and caviar compared with more unconventional Champagne pairings such as fried chicken and pizza.
It's sure to be a close race and you're likely to discover some pairings that you didn't expect to wow you!
Special thanks to Kathleen for sharing so graciously with us tonight and through the years.
