Think Green! Ya! Saint Patrick’s Day! On this week’s audio podcast with The Wine Ladies

Whether Irish or not, Saint Patrick’s Day celebrated worldwide!

Saint Patrick’s Day is a day of people dancing and singing in Irish pubs, like the one of our favourites in our home town, O’Finn’s Irish Temper. Watching parades and drinking lots of green beer, Irish whiskey and munching on Irish stew.

Do you know which city has the largest Saint Patrick’s Day Parade?

1.New York City, 2.Dublin, 3.Sydney, 4.Boston

Meanwhile in Chicago the GREEN goes to the extreme as they actually have a river dyeing ceremony. Just before their parade 45 pounds of eco-friendly vegetable dye is dumped in the Chicago River. The whole river turns a bright limes green colour.

International Women's day 2019 Zonta Celebrates March 5, 2019.

A glittering, golden evening celebrating International Women’s Day with Zonta Celebrates and Olympic Gold Medalist, Catriona Le May Doan.

International Women's day 2019 Zonta Celebrates March 5, 2019.
Zonta Celebrates International Women’s Day 2019. The Wine Ladies were honored to emcee the event. Here with Catherine Bobesich Co Chair Zonta and key note speaker Catriona Le May Doan, Canadian Gold Metal Olympic Champion.

Oh what a night! Everyone won gold March 5th as the inaugural Zonta Celebrates, International Women’s Day (Zonta Club of Oakville) event took place. It was an extraordinary evening of passion and compassion with close to 600 guests in attendance. 

March 8th, 2019 is the 108th anniversary of International Women’s Day with events celebrated around the globe.

We were honored to be the emcees for an IWD event, “Zonta Celebrates” in support of the Oakville Hospital Foundation.

 The funds specifically directed to the issues of women’s health. CEO Oakville Hospital Foundation Mary McPherson addressed the group and announced that $50,000 over the next 5 years will be raised by The Zonta Club of Oakville.

The highlight of the evening was when keynote speaker two-time Olympic Gold Medal Winner.

The fastest women on ice Catriona Le May Doan approached the podium. She spoke of her victories and her challenges both on the ice and off, in her past and in the present. As a woman in sport, was it a level playing field? Here’s what Catriona had to say “It was for me in my sport but in the last seventeen years, the inclusion of women in other sports and teams has made an improvement but still has a way to go”.   And for us in the world of wine, is there equal opportunity? We personally have seen a greater presence of women in our field. Back in 2002 when we started there were far fewer ladies, fast forward many more female wine makers, viticulturists, sommeliers, marketing executives and writers are populating the business.  Plus…. do women have better palates? Ah, the $64,000 question!  

Catriona Le May Doan, We learn from Catriona that she too has a great love and appreciation for a fine glass of red wine! Besties forever!

Speaking of wine, over to the Wine Wall, what a fabulous collection of wines, wine baskets, and wine related accessories all auctioned off to the highest bid in our silent auction. A big thanks to the many sponsors and private individuals for their generous donations!

Bordeaux still until today defines the finest red wine in the world and for many winemakers whether in California, Italy or Spain in the old world or Chile, Argentina or California in the new, it is the benchmark. World renown is the famous 1855 Classification where upon the Emperor Napoleon the 3rd, wanted to display the best wines of Bordeaux at the Universelle de Paris Exposition, or The World’s Fair in today’s terms and so requested of the Bordeaux brokers to make a list of the highest quality properties.

 From this, the 1855 Classification remains today with just a few changes, famous names Château Lafite, Château Latour, Château Margaux, Haut Brion and Château Mouton Rothschild are recognized around the globe.  But what of the many other incredible wineries, Bordeaux is a large wine region, with so much to offer, with many wineries that produce delectable, elegant powerful superb wines and at great value?

 So on this show we introduce you to one such winery, located on the left bank in the Medoc, with the largest vineyard and largest producer of wine in this region, this brand, a beautiful award winning wine, is Château Larose Trintaudon which we will explore with our first guest.

French treat than Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada

Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada

Macarons have been all rage in last couple of years! The rise of macaron dates as far back as the Revolutionary France during the 1700s. Legend has it that French nuns baked and sold these during difficult times to help them pay for day-to-day essentials. It’s also believed that macarons had a much more humble beginning, having started out with no filings or the array of unique flavours that we’ve come to associate them with. We’ve all tasted the notoriously sweet and airy macarons that come in the usual flavours of chocolate, strawberry, coffee, and lemon. But today is different- today we get introduced to the beauty of savoury macarons, orange & cumin, goat cheese and figs and onions, olive tapenade, Porcini mushrooms to name a few. 

And who better to discuss the lesser-known French treat than Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada. Katsy imports only the most delicious, difficult-to-acquire goods from France Originelle, and is making the Greater Toronto Area the latest new home for savoury macarons.

These aren’t your run-of-the-mill macarons. France Originelle’s goods are hand-made in France and are only made using the highest quality, freshest ingredients. You can taste the French pride in these macarons, and it’s no wonder why they’re used in many of France’s most prestigious sporting events. Their gourmet savoury macarons have even won Le Trophée de la Gastronomy, one of France’s highest distinctions.

We explore the pairing of wine with the macarons and more. What a unique and interesting spin! These macarons are available to purchase on line and make a beautiful gift too.
