Wine Dinners

Wine Dinners with Peter Boyd - Winter 2017

This winter, Pukka offers a series of evening wine events aimed equally at beginners and experienced wine lovers. One Monday each month, Peter will lead a small group of the wine-curious on a voyage of discovery, trying to make sense of where and how wine fits with complex, wide-ranging Indian flavours.
100% Snob-Free! Peter’s thirty years of teaching and working in the restaurant industry have sadly done nothing to diminish his irreverent sense of fun.

Each wine dinner includes a four-course prix fixe meal matched with approximately eight wines.

Price for each event is $75 plus tax and service per person. Seating is limited to 16 guests.

To reserve, please contact the restaurant directly by calling 416-342-1906. We require a credit card number to secure your reservation.

Double ‘A’ - Alsace & Austria
Building on last year’s most popular dinner featuring the wines of Alsace, we’ve decided to include the amazing wines of Austria to this year’s version, mostly for the reds! Gorgeous aromatic wines that dovetail beautifully with the heady spices offered up by Pukka’s stellar kitchen. (***And to sweeten the deal, we’re going to show off a few tasty delicacies not normally found on our regular menu!)

Iberia and India The Subcontinent Meets The Peninsula
As we transition from winter to spring, Peter takes us on a road trip matching the sublime flavours of Pukka’s kitchen with the wide range of amazing Spanish and Portuguese wines.
Winemaking in both Spain and Portugal has vaulted quality-wise into the 21st century but both nations have proudly clung to the grapes and styles that have made them famous. Their versatility will delight and surprise you.

The Backroads of France
France’s reputation in the world of wine needs no introduction. The French may not have invented wine but they sure have taken it to a whole new level. If you’ve ever travelled in France you know there are very few corners of the country that don’t produce delightful wines.
This dinner will pit some of those lesser-known beauties against the glorious cooking of Pukka’s kitchen. Whites, reds, rosés and bubblies… Anything is possible! You may leave with some brand new favourites.

{Please note that these evenings will provide each participant with somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 of a bottle of wine per person. Please make safe arrangements for your trip home so you can join in with abandon and bask in the evening’s conviviality.}
