Sherry’s Seeking the Ideal Mate

Calling all sherry-loving sommeliers: The Sherry Council of America is inviting chef-sommelier teams from restaurants all over the U.S. to submit their best food-and-sherry pairings for the chance to compete in the U.S. finals for Copa Jerez, the international food-and-sherry pairing competition held each year in Jerez, Spain. Three semifinalist teams will compete in a live cook-off and pairing in New York City, with the top team scoring a spot (and a trip) to the Copa Jerez finals this coming January. The deadline for recipes with pairings is August 15, so bust out the tapas and get tasting. Additional details can be found at sherrycouncil.org, and for more on Spain’s famously fortified wine, check out Sherry on Top from our November/December 2008 issue.
