Now entering its fourth year in business in the Fox Valley, Osorio’s Latin Fusion restaurant in Appleton, WI has set itself apart from the local cuisine culture in a variety of ways, one of which is the culinary creativity featured in the restaurant’s monthly pairing dinners. For wine enthusiasts, the October wine pairing dinner is a much-anticipated event, set to feature a unique and distinguished lineup of Spanish wines – wines which, rumor has it, left — Executive Chef Liborio Osorio particularly inspired when creating the exclusive menu for the evening’s event.
“The wines were all so delicious and the food pairing inspiration just kept flowing; we couldn’t leave one out,” says co-owner, Kim Finnell, of the switch this month to five courses being featured at the October pairing dinner, as opposed to the usual four. “These wines are absolutely amazing, and we are very excited to share them with our guests.”
Finnell will be joined in her presentation of the Spanish wine lineup by local wine expert and representative, Holly Wiesman and special guest, Gina Borella of Blue Ventures Wine Marketing. Of her partners in presentation, Finnell states with a glint of admiration, “Ms. Wiesman is a veritable fountain of knowledge when it comes to wine; how it’s crafted, where it comes from, the inherent nuances and history of a particular varietal…even the most seasoned wine enthusiasts can expect to learn something new when Holly starts talking wine. We are honored to have both of these fabulous ladies in attendance.”
As most wine lovers can agree, even the very best wines present themselves better when expertly paired with exciting cuisine. Of the five inspired courses prepared exclusively for this event, Chef Liborio isn’t giving away any secrets, though he does exude a palpable air of excitement at the mention of the evening’s menu. With a characteristically boyish humor, he explains, “If people want to know my secrets, they’ll just have to come to dinner.”
A smiling Finnell adds, “The more the merrier!” But while that welcoming philosophy is a major factor in the Appleton, WI restaurant’s success, Osorio’s is committed to nurturing a more intimate atmosphere among its pairing dinner patrons. As such, seating for the October 29th event is limited and reservations are required.
The Spanish wine pairing dinner at Osorio’s Latin Fusion is set to commence on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 7:00 pm. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at 920-955-3766.
In addition to the restaurant’s growing reputation for unique and creative pairing dinners, Osorio’s Latin Fusion has recently branched out into catering. With the holiday season fast approaching, Finnell advises, “We have multiple banquet rooms available for various party sizes and now off-site catering is also available, but we’re booking up quickly – so call soon.” The restaurant offers private pairing dinners for parties, among many other versatile, customizable and, by all local reports, mouth-watering catering options.
