We’re incredibly excited to launch Shifting the Lens, our limited culinary series premiering this summer. In July, August, September and October, three guest chefs-in-residence will share their creative approach to life through a curated tasting journey that builds upon J's legacy of growing, evolving, and challenging people's notions on pairing wine with food. Each collaborative residency consists of a special pairing menu in the Bubble Room over two weekends (Thursday – Sunday), a unique cheese pairing in the Legacy Lounge for six weeks and, on the first Saturday of each chef’s residency, an intimate culinary conversation and dinner with the guest chef in the Bubble Room. Shifting the Lens takes you on a journey and opens your eyes to a world beyond the plate. To further extend the experience, Luxe and Elegance members have first access to reservations for these events and early access to a limited release sparkling wine produced in conjunction with the series.
In July, Chef Jenny Dorsey will kick off the series and employ her skills in culinary arts as a platform to evoke introspection, empathy and emotion. Currently based in Los Angeles, she is the founder of the award-winning non-profit Studio ATAO, whose vision is a world where all people can realize their power to secure equitable and inclusive change.
