Central Bistro, beloved for its made-from-scratch modern French and American fare focused on ingredients from neighborhood purveyors and farmers, has actually partnered along with Darioush Winery for a special wine supper – hosted by Darioush Khaledi themselves – on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
Cost is $150 each individual and entails the 2 tax and gratuity. As a special handle to readers, the Scottsdale Wine Examiner is proud to present a sneak peek at the eye-popping menu:
Lobster terrine, crunchy marinated vegetables, basil vinaigrette – Darioush Viognier 2012
Heirloom squash soup, brown butter pear, hazelnut oil – Darioush Chardonnay 2012
Chicken and wild mushroom tortelli, black truffle-foie gras dressing – Capataz Malbec 20ten by Darioush
Bone marrow crusted filet of beef, potato pave, sunchoke creamed spinach – Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Perhaps more exciting compared to the menu, however, is Khaledi’s real story.
Born and raised in Iran, trained as a civil engineer, and a lifelong entrepreneur, Khaledi’s fascination along with wine was instilled at an very early age by his father’s winemaking initiatives and the cultural history of winemaking in Shiraz.
Khaledi’s emigrated to the United States seeking opportunity, reinventing his occupation by building exactly what became at one point the largest family-owned grocery company in California through determination, experimentation and a commitment to pursue chances others overlook. With each other along with his wife Shahpar, he founded Darioush in 1997, and established out to develop wines that commemorate individualism and craftsmanship. The winery is Khaledi’s realization of his American dream.
