[MUSIC] Hi I'm Jackie Tranchida coming to you from the
Newport Mansions Wine and Food festival. A world-class event held
amidst some of the nation's most storied Gilded Age mansions.
And we're bringing you inside the exclusive events and tastings,
and going behind the scenes to talk with A-list chefs
and [UNKNOWN] from across the country, who have all come
here to gorgeous Newport, Rhode Island, to showcase their So
join me as we discover the details of their craft,
fabulous tips on cooking and entertaining, and of course spectacular
food. [MUSIC] << This is probably in our view the
best wine and food festival anywhere in America and what
makes it so special is the fact that it's held
in some of the most glorious, fantastic mansions in this
country. There is nothing like the Newport Mansions. If you
look at this setting combined with the food, combined with
the wine, I mean it makes for an amazing experience.
When I create a new dish, it needs to be
fun. I do an ice cube in the shape of
an egg and I dip it in white chocolate and
then Remove the white chocolate. It's beautiful, it looks like
a mixture. Oh. Voila. [MUSIC] They say [UNKNOWN] it's the
best of the best of their single vintage wines. This
is 2012 so it's 11 years old. And it's the
current vintage. Meaning all the other years in between are
still gonna be put on hold until they age to
perfection. This is the creme de la creme. Cheers. We
had a sweet home local truffle custard. The presentation's beautiful.
But it's a basic concept of adding rich flavors with
slightly acidic flavors and balancing your fats and acids really.
Jenn-Air is all about a discerning audience. Luxury homes, luxury
entertaining, and you really can't get more luxury than Newport.
When on the grounds, one of the great mansions in
Newport. What's better than food, wine, a wonderful setting, [UNKNOWN].
Some great wines that I have discovered in the tense.
Travel is a big piece of the food and wine
experience, so I want to associate ourselves with the best
destinations and create a best event in this place. [MUSIC]
