Join Columbia graduate and Chicago’s Elliot Wine School Owner and Founder, Miranda Elliot, along with fellow alumni and friends at Tanoshii in Andersonville for a compelling tasting experience. The event will integrate wine & sake tasting with sushi selections recommended by Tanoshii’s chef.
This event was previously a virtual wine and sake tasting only. The event has been changed to an in-person event given return to normal and in celebration of Asian Heritage Month.
Miranda Elliot is an Advanced Sommelier with a BA in Classical Studies from Columbia University, has been a sommelier at several top Chicago restaurants and was named by Zagat as one of Chicago’s 30 under 30 and a Chicagoist’s Top Ten Buzz-worthy Sommelier. Miranda has won several wine competitions and has held positions in education, sales, and import and distribution of French, Italian, Portuguese, and domestic wines. Miranda launched Elliott Wine School LLC which offers beverage and WSET classes, certifications, private wine education events, and consulting.
During the event, Miranda will discuss styles of wine and sake, proper methods for tasting, how to choose wine and sake at retail shops or in restaurants, and answer questions you may have about these topics or Miranda’s experiences as a sommelier.
Tanoshii’s chef will provide insights into a sushi menu chosen to pair with Miranda’s wine and sake selections. This style of Japanese dining is referred to as ‘Omakase’, which is short for ‘omakase shimasu’, which roughly means “I trust you (chef)”.
