For the fourth year, Borgata will present a program of signature events throughout the weekend that will celebrate the individual talent of each participating chef. On Friday, Savor Borgata Weekend will kick off with three signature dinners designed to excite even the most experienced palettes. “The Best of Wolfgang Puck,” located at Wolfgang Puck American Grille, will present a 5-course wine dinner by Chef Puck himself with a menu drawing inspiration from his restaurants around the world. Down the hall, “Dinner with Geoffrey Zakarian” will take over 28 West for a gastronomic experience guests will savor forever – including a meet-and-greet cocktail reception with the Iron Chef, followed by an exclusive 4-course dinner. Across property, Old Homestead restaurateurs Greg and Marc Sherry will celebrate New Jersey’s best steak house* by hosting a multi-course “Steak, Stoli, & Caviar” dinner with their award-winning Executive Chef, Romeo DiBona. On the same evening, guests may join Absolut Vodka and Borgata Culinary to learn how to throw an unforgettable cocktail party at “Absolut-ly Fabulous Tapas Party” held inside one of the hotel’s premiere Residence Suites.
On Saturday afternoon, Food Network fans will learn some of Bobby Flay’s most celebrated recipes during a live Culinary Demonstration at Borgata’s Music Box theatre. Immediately following, Flay will sign copies of his new cookbook, “Brunch @ Bobby’s,” inside 28 West.
Also on Saturday, Borgata will host a series of intimate classes and engaging culinary activities, starting with a 4-course “Wine and Chocolate… Perfect Companions” savory-sweet lunch at 28 West produced by Borgata Executive Chef Tom Biglan and Wine Manager Laura Turenne. Just a few dining rooms away, Fornelletto Cucina & Wine Bar Chef/Partner Stephen Kalt will host the interactive “Pasta Making 101,” where guests will spend the afternoon sipping wine and tasting savory bites. Later, Izakaya Modern Japanese Pub’s Michael Schulson will demonstrate just how fun and easy sushi-making can be at the hands-on “Sushi & Sake with Schulson” class, while Borgata Executive Pastry Chef – and former White House Pastry Chef – Thaddeus Dubois shares his best techniques for the perfect pie at “The Pie is the Limit.” Not to be outdone, The Metropolitan will open the door to discover what happens when oysters and beer pair together at “The World is Your Oyster,” and across the hall, Gypsy Bar will welcome Pernod Ricard Wine Ambassador Ken Pearlman for an afternoon nibbling tapas and sipping sangria at “Saborea la Sangria.”
Borgata will also present tasting events for guests to pick their poison amidst whiskey, beer, wine, and champagne seminars throughout the property on Saturday. Whiskey connoisseurs can begin their afternoon with Bulleit Frontier Whiskey at Long Bar for “Bite the Bulleit – Tastes of Kentucky,” while advanced and amateur oenophiles join Francis Ford Coppola Winery for “Tasting In The Dark,” and champagne lovers enjoy an escalating flight of bubbles and cheese pairings at “Bubbles… by G.H. Mumm.” New to the lineup, wine and beer fans will battle it out at “Grapes vs Grains” when Master Sommelier Robert Bigelow takes on Certified Cicerone Ryan Johnson to learn which makes the better food pairing.
