We invite you to join us for another exclusive dinner pairing from Executive Chef Rob Cottman featuring the finest blends from Gautier Cognac. An ambassador from Maison Gautier, Francis Giknis, will be on site to discuss the over 350 year history of this iconic brand and the variances in each expression that will be sampled. The evening will start with a welcome cocktail featuring the flagship Gautier VS, followed by three savory courses individually paired with Gautier VSOP, Gautier 1755, and Gautier XO with a finale dessert course. Gautier caters to both professional Cognac aficionados as well as consumers just being introduced to the spirit that like to experiment with new cocktail ideas.  Space is very limited, so do not wait to purchase your tickets.

Executive Chef Rob Cottman’s definition of what it means to prepare great food originated from watching his father in the kitchen at a young age. Combined with lessons from his mom, he gained the awareness and skill set to be self-reliant in any kitchen. He continued to develop an appreciation and respect for the way recipes have been preserved and passed down among cultures and families through generations.  Now entering his 12th year at World Cafe Live, Chef Rob continues to push the envelope of what can be expected for dining experiences in a live music venue. Chef Rob Cottman is excited to present the next in his series of specialized dinner pairings.  Join us as we taste the rich history alongside expertly curated courses (with separate pairings for vegan diners) as you experience how the flavors are all elevated when enjoyed together.

**All food and drink is included with your ticket purchase. Please select MEAT or VEGAN at checkout.**

Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest Cognac houses, with a very unique location. The story of the Gautier brand begins in 1644 in the small village of Aigre, Charente, when Charles Gautier, the son of an oak merchant from the Tronçais forest, married Jacquette Brochet, a vineyard owner’s daughter. From this fusion between mastering wine growing and oak, a new passion was born : the love of creating cognac. From 1700, their grandson Louis Gautier further expanded the cognac business and contributed to the considerable growth of Maison GAUTIER. In 1755, the family obtained a Royal warrant to produce cognac and a founding charter signed by King Louis XV. Maison GAUTIER was born. Thanks to their expertise and knowledge acquired over time, the Gautier family decided in 1890 to settle in an ancient water mill over the Osme river, in the small village of Aigre. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. Maison Gautier unites ancient history with a modern view of the Cognac market.
