“This dinner came about after we met with the passionate people from Jefferson’s and sampled their amazing products,” said Palladino. “I found a barrel I loved, and they allowed us to call it our own. I thought it would be fun to pair my single barrel select bourbon and some of Jefferson’s other bourbons with food. This dinner is a fun way for us to create a menu paired with a craft, distilled drink with character that isn’t wine.”
Reservations for this one-night-only dinner can be secured by calling 610-768-5003. Pricing is $95 per person for the pairing dinner, or $120 per person for pairing dinner plus a one-of-a-kind Chef Palladino 750 ML Bottle of Single Barrel Select Bourbon bottled from the barrel that Luke Palladino fell in love with.
