On the afternoon of February 25, in Allison’s Fine Dining Restaurant, Chef Chad Lauderbaugh, The Sharon at SouthPark’ director of Culinary Services, offered a surprise showcase of his culinary talents with a four-course menu he crafted specifically to pair with intriguing wine selections.

The menu for the event included:

Roasted Vegetables and Crab Crumble

Second Course

Featuring Old South Petite Sirah
“Atlanta’s Vertical Gardens”
Mixed Greens / Roasted Beets / Berries / Blue Cheese

Third Course

Fourth Course

The theme was Spring Wines and Food with wines from Empire Distributors. After the event, partakers were able to purchase the wines they had tasted and enjoyed.

Participants raved about this lively addition to the calendar and said that they look forward to savoring more events like this one. Dining Service Manager Lyndsey Stevenson was happy to oblige, saying, “We are already planning a similar affair for the month of April with a five-course tasting and pairing.”

Residents are urged to keep an eye on Cubigo for the announcement of the next pop-up event.
