Best of Show wine dinner @ Evan's Kitchen

The 2009 California State Fair is now but a memory, so it's farewell to deep-fried Twinkies spins on the Tilt-A-Whirl and free admission by wearing MC Hammer pants. And like every year, the California State Fair Wine Garden was a hit, with folks getting a chance to sample award winning wines from the fair's Commercial Wine Competition before, say, hitting up a petting zoo.

And here's another chance to sample some of the fair's winning wines. Evan's Kitchen (855 57th Street, Sacramento) is hosting a dinner on Sept. 14 that pair's the fair's "best of show" wines with four courses and dessert. The cost is $59.95 per person. To reserve a spot: (916) 452-3896.

Here's the "best of show" menu:

First Course:
Basque Veggie Kabobs
with Key Lime Sauce
Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noir

Second Course:
Mango and Red Onion Shrimp Salad
with Grapefruit and Lime Vinaigrette
RB Cellars Serenade de Blanc '07

Third Course:
Chicken Tenderloin*
in a Port and Raisin Sauce
Bixler '07 Delta Union Island Red

Fourth Course:
Minty Lamb Lasagna* (vegetarians can request "no meat")
Bloomfield Cabernet Sauvignon '07

Chocolate and Orange Torte
with Mango Coulis
Renwood Muscat
