Yountville --Rick Moonen, former Top Chef Masters competitor and owner of RM in Las Vegas, and wine country's own Michael Chiarello, teamed up at Chiarello's NapaStyle last night. During the demo and tasting, Moonen made his famous Moon Doggies, or shrimp corn dogs, and signed copies of his book Fish Without A Doubt: The Cook’s Essential Companion. Later, the two chums hopped over to Bottega where Moonen whipped up clams with Chiarello's house-made chorizo.
Next Wednesday, March 10, another Top Chef Masters alum Lachlan Patterson of Frasca in Boulder will prepare a four-course tasting menu at Bottega paired with Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey's picks of Scarpetta wines. [Eaterwire]
