See Food - Txakoholika Edition

By Staff in Food on May 31, 2011 7:00PM

Last week, Craig Perman (Perman Wine Selections) and veteran chefs of the underground dinner scene Abe Conlon and Adrienne Lo (X-Marx) collaborated to host the third annual installment of Txakoholika, a Pop-up Pintxos and Wine Bar. Basque-inspired finger foods were paired with Sidra (hard cider) and five different Txakoli's, a slightly effervescent, highly acidic and dry wine (either white or rose) indigenous to the Basque region. Not only was this event a great way to introduce the new vintages of this truly unique juice to Chicago but allowed guests to experience San Sebastian for the evening. With summer around the corner, make sure you give these wines a try!
