What: Jazz & Wine Dinner
Where: Dry Creek Kitchen,
317 Healdsburg Ave.
Time: 7-10 pm | Reservation recommended
Take delectable entrees, pair them with Sonoma County’s luscious wines, throw in some great jazz and you have a pretty good way to spend a Monday night. Such will be the scene at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival when the Dry Creek Kitchen— Charlie Palmer’s local haute cuisine outpost—hosts the Terry Henry Trio.
Henry’s piano playing is tasty enough to have gotten him gigs with jazz greats like Chet Baker, Eddie Henderson and Mel Martin. Drummer Tony Johnson and bassist Bill Fouty round out the trio of savvy boppers who will leave the audience just hungry enough for a little dessert, and more jazz.
Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen: If this country has a culinary cradle, it’s in Northern Sonoma, where the fruits of local labor—from outstanding produce to handcrafted cheese—have never been on a plane. Drawing upon regional ingredients is a superior way to eat and one can taste the freshness in Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette’s Dry Creek Kitchen specialties. You can also experience the regional abundance in the six-course, wine-trail tasting menu, featuring “neighborhood” food and wine pairings.
