WTCI's friends and supporters are invited to share in a Masterpiece Experience at 212 Market Restaurant on Thursday, May 22. Chef Susan Moses will create a five-course gourmet meal featuring locally sourced, organic ingredients. These dishes have never been served in the restaurant before and are only available for a single evening.
Each course will be paired with a wine from Athens Distributing. Guests at the Chef's Table will also enjoy a VIP discussion with the wine steward. The restaurant has been honored with the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence annually since 2004. Individual, corporate and Chef's Table seating is available and can accommodate most table configurations.
Chef Susan Moses is a member of Slow Food and has cooked as a guest chef at the James Beard House in New York. Susan, Maggie and Sally Moses are icons in Chattanooga’s restaurant community, were an anchor restaurant during the riverfront’s revitalization and were the first restaurant in Tennessee certified by the Tennessee Green Hospitality Program, said officials. “Creating new dishes for the Masterpiece Experience is much like making new music. There are only 8 notes in an octave, but the number of songs you can make is infinite, depending on how you put them together,” says Chef Moses.
The menu will include:
Enza Sparkling Rose with passed hors d'oeuvres such as smoked trout mousse, warm Sequatchie Cove cheese gougeres and other culinary treats,
Wente, Morning Fog Chardonnay with vichyssoise with Crabtree Farm's leeks,
Lobster Reef Sauvignon Blanc served with spring salad with baby vegetables and watercress,
Cline, Cool Climate Pinot Noir with Georgia quail breast, Bonnie Blue goat cheese with Falls Mill polenta and smoked Vidalia onion marmalade,
Lander-Jenkins Cabernet Sauvignon with Eagle's Rest bison wellington, Mountain Shadow shitake duxelle and Casper's North Georgia morel mushroom sauce, and
Georgia Winery Muscadine with a strawberry trifle en crepe with Chattanooga Whiskey ice cream.
Paul Grove, president and CEO of WTCI, says, “The menu for this year’s event is a masterpiece very similar to our highly-acclaimed British dramas Downton Abbey, Sherlock and Mr. Selfridge. Our amazing friends at 212 Market and Athens Distributing have created an incredible menu with dishes and wine selections that are unique to this special evening.”
