2013 bASH celebrates wine, food and arts

More than 250 guests attended this month’s bASH, Appellation St. Helena’s annual food and wine pairing competition. The historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone was the scene of the event, where both student and restaurant teams were paired with the Appellation’s wineries and competed against each other.

More than 20 teams competed at the event. Pairings included ASH wines and creative creations from both restaurants and students of the CIA.

After all the votes were counted, it turned out that winning dishes in both of the categories were all-American favorites. In the restaurant category the winner was Market’s Mac & Cheese paired with Taplin Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.

As part of Arts in April, the work of local artist Penelope Moore was showcased at the event.
