This is a pretty cool idea if one could pull it off. Eric Ripert, the French chef that women swoon over (at least Eun Jeong does), is creating a dinner social on his blog and with members of his Avec Eric email list.

He sends out menus using seasonal ingredients, along with the recipes and wine pairings. Then people share their experiences on his web site. It’s like a book club but for food.

Likely I won’t be able to get some key ingredients in Korea, and VERY likely won’t have access to whatever wine he pairs. I doubt Majuang will be in his repertoire. Yet I really like his food and have made a couple of his dishes at home. Looking forward to it.
