Celebrate Argentina: Bottled Poetry, Andrew Ormsby, Andrew Shotts, Gary Coghill

I’m pulling this wine dinner out of the usual post because it’s an annual event:  the third Argentine Asado Dinner presented by Bottled Poetry Imports, Andrew Ormsby of Andrew Ormsby Catering, Chocolatier Andrew Shotts of Garrison Confections, and special guest Gary Cogill, film critic and host of  WFAA-TV’s Good Morning Texas. The festivities take place on May 2 and the cost is $100 plus tax and gratuity. Thanks to Dallas Uncorked for the details below.

UPDATED FOR WORZEL: The just-approved menu and wine pairings have been rushed to SideDish because Worzel wanted them.


Dallas, TX:  Executive Chef and Owner Andrew Ormsby of Andrew Ormsby Catering will team with Wine Importer Stewart Elliott, Jr., of Bottled Poetry Imports, for their third annual Argentine Asado May 2nd on the Tucker Patio at Andrew Ormsby Catering, celebrating the food and flavors of Argentina.  We are pleased to bring you a culinary treat that captures the romance and spirit of this wondrous land.  Drink. Dine. Live. Dream. This is Argentina!

The evening will feature dishes inspired by the feasts that Argentines enjoy in their traditional family Asado, in a four course seated dinner paired with six Argentine wine selections by Bottled Poetry.

Food Network celebrity chef and award winning Chocolatier, Andrew Shotts, owner of Garrison Confections, will join the pair once again this year to create an Argentine inspired chocolate dessert.  Andrew recently was recently awarded the Best Chocolatier in America by The Food Network.

As a special bonus this year, Gary Cogill, film critic, host of WFAA-TV’s Good Morning Texas, and genuine food enthusiast, will be our special guest chef.  Anyone who knows Gary knows he loves good food and wine, he loves to cook, and he loves to talk great movies.  He will enjoy all with our guests. Sommelier and founder of Dallas Uncorked, Hayley Hamilton, will complete the gourmet contributors.

Argentines believe in celebrating food and wine. Their Asado feasts are special occasions bringing family and friends together as one.  May 2nd we hope to do the same for our guests, which will surely become like family after the experience.

The Asado cost is $100++ per person. For reservations call 214-389-1313 by May 1. Seating is limited. Andrew Ormsby Catering/TUCKER is located just outside of downtown: 3113 Ross Ave, Dallas, TX 75204
