TDF: Extravagant Evening of Culinary Artistry
Add to your calendar
Date: September 3, 6:00 pm
Details: The art of Bill and Denise Hayes’ home lies in the architectural components themselves. The first you encounter are the doors. Each completely different salvaged antique door is a showcase of ornate, beautifully carved wood hand selected by Denise. Unique panels of engraved and varied scrolls, create the rises of the spiraling staircase, individually illuminated with lighting. Deeply dark naturally patinaed beams arch over the great room like a small cathedral, fastened with elaborate ironwork. The angular modernity of the fireplace couples with distressed woodwork, hammered metal and rusted iron kitchen accents. Indeed, four different metal artisans custom crafted each piece from the trusses to the chandelier. An old world nuance dances with clean lines and geometric shapes, rough and sleek all at once.

It is a suiting home to exhibit the epicurean artistry of Chef Jason Vernon of Soupçon Bistro. Relishing in the romantic distinctions of the French countryside with its deep history and leisurely pace of life, Jason sculpts dishes infused with passion, respect for ingredients and tender techniques characteristic of that region. Formally trained at the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Jason refined his prowess at such prestigious dining establishments as the Stanford Landmark, Chicago Four Seasons, Emeril Lagasse's Nola in New Orleans, and RK, an American Brasserie in New York City. He is Tour de Fork's only six-time winner of the Chefs on the Edge competition, solo and as leading chef of a team. At this exquisite event, Chef Jason spellbounds with a multi-course tasting menu that will be unlike anything you have ever experienced.

Sommelier Dan Downing is the founder of Elevated Winesource, focusing on private wine cellar management and private wine events. With over 10 years of experience in the world of high end wine and food, Dan is also the Wine Director of the fabulously deep and prestigious offerings at Soupçon Bistro. For this event, Dan pours fine wines from around the world paired in perfect harmony with Chef Jason’s extravagant menu. Afterwards, participants have the unique opportunity to round out their own personal wine cellars with the wines featured at this dinner, with ordering opportunities through Elevated Winesource.
