On October 11th, the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge hosted our first pairing dinner. Our collaboration with Iron Fish Distillery resulted in a unique, fun dining experience for our guests. Our very own Chef Widad crafted the three course dinner. Iron Fish Distillery paired each course with their own custom cocktail.
We saw a great opportunity to showcase both Iron Fish and the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, and this dinner did just that. Richard Anderson, co-owner of Iron Fish, entertained our guests with interesting historical tidbits of the company and their products. Chef Widad presented each course with a brief description of the food and how it paired with the cocktail it was designed to compliment.
In addition to the dinner, our guests enjoyed music by Gail English and her band. Chris Guibert, in between bites of his own delicious dinner and cocktails, took some wonderful pictures. The night was full of conversation, friends, great food and drinks.
We thank everyone who attended, and we hope every guest had as much fun attending as we had hosting. It may have been a first for us at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, but this pairing dinner will not be the last! Stay tuned for next season’s events!
