Dinner with The Chef: The Exotic Asian Flavors fo Chef Corinne Trang

Last week, I attended an Evening with The Chef dinner event at the State Room Restaurant with my dear friends. Each of these ladies have a special place in my heart. We got together to catch up, enjoy each others company, and early-celebrate my birthday. The evening was part of Spring 2013 Visiting Chef Series - hosted by The Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center.
This 2-evening event is an absolute must for lovers of good food and wine. The first evening of Cooking Demonstration includes a lecture and demo of a 4-course meal. Samples of each course are served to attendees along with two wine selections. The following evening, guests enjoy "Dinner with the Chef" featuring a different 4 course meal prepare by the chef and served with wine pairings.
Chef Corinne Trang was our featured chef for the evening, and we absolutely fell in love with her. She is not only a chef but also award-winning cookbook author, spokesperson, wellness coach, TV personality, and more. She is also the founder of a hybrid wellness program called The Yoga of Food, combining mindful eating, yoga, and meditation. Here's what we had:
 Vietnamese Fresh Tofu Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce
2010 Dr. Thanisch Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Kabinett, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer 
 Sweet and Sour Shrimp Soup
2011 Jolete' Pinot Noir Rose', Willamette Valley 
 Five Spice Duck with Sticky Rice in Bamboo Leaves and Curried Pineapple
2008 Four Vines Martinelli Vineyard Zinfandel, Paso Robles 
 Hot Coconut Tapioca with Banana
NV 2 Lads Sparkling Pinot Grigio, Old Mission Peninsula
We had such wonderful time! We enjoyed Chef Corinne's exotic Asian flavors, and her presence. She made sure to visit and say Hello to all the attendees - she is sweet and a lot of fun :)
The evening was very special for me, I am so thankful for having great friends who are always there for me - to support, and to celebrate with me. 

Thank you, ladies! 
With Chef Corinne Trang,
and Chef Rajeev (from Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center)
