This is Chef David Feau’s new little side project - crazy good, fresh, amazing soup!
Soup of the Week
Welcome to the newly designed soup club! Soups by DF has become JeCook.
Each week I visit a farmer’s market to find the freshest ingredients. I decide the flavors based on what is in season so you are always getting the best.
In advance of our next dinner on July 26th (French! with David Feau), I’d like to introduce you to Standard Wax. I just love their candles and on July 26th, not only will two of you lucky Eat+Drinkers get a couple of them in the evening raffle but every table will have their lovely candles illuminating the evening for us.
I immediately liked Samantha and Andrew when I met them and I know you would adore them too. They have graciously extended a 20% discount to you on any of their items @ Standard Wax - just use this code: EATPLUSDRINK.
Our Eat+Drink Supper Club heroes - Ted & Kim Osborne from Olabisi Wines and Eat+Drink’s very own back of house sous chef - Tere Throenle!

Chef Richard Wilson hard at work for our Italian Supper Club dinner on May 31st. :) We were so lucky to have our friend Ross take pictures that night. Gorgeous!
We partnered with the amazing folks at Wilderess last month for our Italian Eat+Drink dinner. I LOVED the scents of Oak & Amber and Sweet Tobacco! All Eat+Drinkers can get a 15% discount when ordering. :) Here’s to sweet smells in your home!
Ummmm…how cool is this guy? Chef AND furniture maker.
Two weeks ago was our kick-off to the Eat+Drink 2014 Supper Club Season and it was AMAZING! If you were there, you know what I’m talking about and if you weren’t, WOW did you miss out on a culinary experience that would have blown your mind. Chef Clark Staub of Full of Life Flatbread and J.Brix Wines stuffed us full of food and wine until we cried for mercy. Check out the pictures above and kick yourself for not joining us!

Eat+Drink + Olabisi Wines
Olabisi Wines just sent out their Spring Wine Club details and I wanted to share them with you immediately for two reasons: 1) Ted Osborne has created a magnificent wine he’s calling the Black Pearl. I had the luxury of tasting this wine straight from the barrel in January and I was blown away (check out Ted in the barrel room below!). You need this in your mouth now! 2) Ted and his amazing wines are coming directly to YOU via the Eat+Drink Supper Club on May 31st. Sign up for this dinner immediately!
Olabisi makes incredibly small quantities of wine so the best way to know about them is to Sign Up for the Olabisi Newsletter. If you’re a wine freak, like me, check out their Wine Club options that ship in April & November and Email them to get IN.

OLABISI Cabernet Sauvignon “Black Pearl Vineyard” 2010 ($90)
Wine Notes: Undisclosed hillside vineyard. Bright and dark black-red in color, this wine truly shines in the glass. Smell and taste black and red cherries, cassis, blueberry pie and a hint of mocha spice. There’s just enough luxurious French oak to frame all of the perfectly ripe and gorgeous fruit. Moderate tannin structure is evident on the soaring 60+ second finish that begs for sip after sip of this texturally sublime wine. Simply put, this is seamless, quintessential Napa Valley luxury Cabernet.Drink now through 2035.Only 96 cases.
OLABISI Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2011 ($38)
Wine Notes: The blend of this wine is top secret (Ted won’t even tell me what’s in it), but after tasting it a few times, I place it stylistically somewhere between a Pinot Noir and a Zinfandel. Drink it with roasted chicken, drink it with BBQ ribs, drink it for Tuesday dinner and drink it for Sunday brunch. Your table will be happy no matter what. Only 74 cases.
