Copa celebrates cheese at its April dinner.
Cheese lovers, take note: Copa Wine Bar, 19141 Stone Oak Parkway, is sponsoring an Homage to Fromage during its monthly dinner at 7 p.m. April 25.
The meal will begin with Parmesan Egg Cups filled with creamy chèvre mousse and topped with a shirred egg. You can pair it with either Bavik Pilsner Beer from Belgium or Casillero del Diablo Viognier from Chile.
A Oaxacan Empanada stuffed with chewy Oaxacan cheese and spicy Mexican chorizo will be paired with either Wasatch “Ghostrider” White IPA from Utah or Hob Nob Wicked Red from France, followed by Moussaka, which is ground beef and roasted eggplant baked with a Mornay cheese sauce and served with cheesy garlic bread. Pair it with either Leinenkugal’s Creamy Dark Lager from Wisconsin or the Tuscan Perazzeta Sara Sangiovese.
Dessert is a Churro Cheesecake in which the cheese is baked between layers of cinnamon- and sugar-dipped pastry. It will be served with either Robinson’s Chocolate Old Tom from England or Gnaughty Vines Zinfandel from Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley.
The dinner is priced at $40 a person. Call (210) 495-2672 for reservations.
