This Thursday, November 20, Sugar Beach Events launches a series of “intimate events highlighting interaction with Chef Lee Anderson.”

The first, an eight course Autumn dinner, is paired with wines by Johnson Brothers which are presented by Gabe Harvey.

“This first dinner I am introducing my new caprese carving station and gourmet salt bar. At the end of the meal, I’ll send each guest with a selection of salt for them to use at home,” says Chef Anderson. “You don’t realize the distinctive taste difference each salt has until you taste it side by side. This will give you a chance to try them next to each other and decide your favorite…combining and being creative as you see fit.”

The Autumn Wine Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. with a champagne reception and the meal itself commences at 6 p.m.


The menu focuses on the foods of the Fall and features:

  • Caprese Salad carving station and salt bar with
    Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand
  • Truffle Deviled Egg and fennel flower with
    Gruet Blanc De Noir, New Mexico
  • Garlic Miso Prawn with
    Cusumano Insolia, Sicily, Italy
  • Spicy Beef Sashimi with sriracha, white radish and ponzu
