Piperade Hosts Basque Hotel Dinner with Wine Pairings

Piperade is hosting a four-course Basque Hotel Dinner on Thursday, June 23rd featuring wines from B. Kosuge Winery, known for small productions sourced from top vineyards. According to Piperade chef-owner Gerald Hirigoyen, "Basque hotels have long been social centers that helped locals and boarders preserve their culture when in a foreign country, and a meal of familiar dishes and a good bottle of wine was another way to stay connected. This dinner is a chance for me to honor this tradition." Tickets are $100 each, including tax and gratuity. Reservations are required via or (415) 391-2555. 6:30pm reception; 7pm dinner. // 1015 Battery St. (North Beach),
