Forks & Corks

Just because the last of the Christmas trees have been plucked from the sidewalks and the Santa plates packed away for another year doesn't mean we need to stop eating, drinking and making merry. Case in point: Forks and Corks, a four-part dinner series at Healdsburg's Spoonbar that kicks off this Saturday, Jan. 26. Seven chefs a-cooking. Three sommeliers a-pairing. Even a mixologist with a rare recipe.

Hosted by Spoonbar's own executive chef, Louis Maldonado, each of the four themed dinners are co-created by top Bay Area chefs and wine experts. For the debut meal, Maldonado teams with Michelin-starred chef James Syhabout (pictured) to celebrate global influences and local Sonoma ingredients with dishes that include sea urchin and crab in a coconut bath, Guinea hen with green curry aromatics, and Parsnip milk tapioca with mandarins.

"Where Land Meets Sea" is the theme for the dinner on Feb. 23, which will feature Outerlands' chef Brett Cooper alongside Sommelier Kevin Wardell of Bergamot Alley. The series wraps up with an as-yet-to-be-decided themed meal prepared by chef Lauren Kiino and sommelier David Lynch on April 20. With the exception of March's Swine and Wine Dinner, which is part of the Annual Pigs and Pinot Celebration package, all meals include six courses for $110.
