We’re super excited for this one… Stop in for a glass, and stay for a savory plate of pork! Chef Marc-Henri Jean-Baptiste has quite the resume. His introduction to transforming pork products began while working alongside Chef Michael Sullivan at Blackberry Farm. He continued his training with Daniel Baloud in NYC, which led to an invitation to join the team of Alain Ducaasse at his most famous restaurant, Louis XV in Monacco. Before he knew it, Chef Marc-Henri was sous-chef for Gilles Verot, mastering the subtleties of charcuterie (if you’re a fan of cured pork products, that name should make your stomach rumble and your mouth water!) His travels finally brought him to Tenuta di Spannocchia in Tuscany, raising animals naturally and crafting the finest salumi using the the ancestral traditions and stewardship of his teacher, Maestro Riccio. And now, Chef Marc-Henri Jean-Baptiste is popping-up the next couple of Fridays in the Idlewild Cantina! Stop by for some glasses of your favorite Idlewild wines and introduce yourself to Marc-Henri and his lovely wife, Maud (while you enjoy some of the best charcuterie products available!)
