DimSumPalooza 2015: A blazing lineup of small plates and bubbly pairings starring sparkling winemaker Tom Tiburzi of Domaine Chandon

CHARLESTON, SC – September 25, 2015 — For DimSumPalooza on October 14,  Aya Cookhouse will be serving up a special menu of small plates and bites to pair with lots and lots of bubbles. In keeping with Aya’s pan-Asian approach to food, the dishes won’t all be Chinese. The menu will encompass Korean fried chicken, Szechuan shrimp, and Japanese nigiri with foie gras and unagi. 

For this dinner, Aya is teaming up with winemaker Tom Tiburzi, who oversees Domaine Chandon’s sparkling program in California. For his very first visit to this market, Tiburzi will be bringing some exceptional bottles of bubbles with him, including Chandon Etoile, made in collaboration with Richard Geoffroy of Dom Perignon. 

The sparkling wine dinner will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by a sit-down five-course dinner priced at $70. Tiburzi will be on hand to discuss the pairings and share in this unique experience.
