    On December 3rd and 4th 2010, Zephyr Ventilation hosted Katie and Preston Roper (and their very best friends) to an amazing gourmet dinner – their Dream Dinner grand prize for winning the homeowner Inspire My Kitchen Design Contest.

    Chef Tom Hurley and his expert crew tailored a dinner menu and wine pairing that perfectly matched the Roper’s requests and expectations.

    The Roper’s (and their friends) were treated to two one-of-a-kind events: a personalized cooking class with Chef Tom Hurley and the Dream Dinner main event. During theĀ  Cooking 101 class with Chef Hurley, the guests learned how to prepare and cook the perfect Chicken Chausseur and its dinner table mates foie gras flan and Russet and Yukon pomme puree.

    The Dream Dinner was a five-star dinner event with exquisite hors d’oevres and 5 courses prepared in the Roper’s award winning kitchen and sourced from the finest purveyors of fine foods. Each dish was perfectly paired with incredible wines and champagnes from around the world by Bay Area wine expert Debbie Zachareas, owner of the Wine Merchant and SF Chronicle wine blogger.

    Chef Tom Hurley was joined by an eclectic group of friends and admirers in the preparation of the Dream Dinner. Sous Chefs Tobias Hogan and Ethan Powell, owner/operators of EAT Oyster Bar in Portland, Oregon. Wine expert Debbie Zachareas, owner/operator Wine Merchant in San Francisco, California. Restaurateur and Bay Area icon Richard Miyashiro.
