Gourmet dinners with Michigan’s summer sustenance are easy to come by thanks to Chef Jacobs of Boyne Highlands Resort. For the summer season, he’s pairing dinners with Michigan beers and wines from around the state. Meals consisting of fresh ingredients and artful presentation give guests the opportunity to sample and learn about Michigan flavors from their regional brew and wine masters.
"The nuances and flavor profiles in the beers and wines create more complexities and touches with the food we’re preparing," said Jacobs. "We’re lucky to have such world class wines and beers available to us right here in Michigan." Chef Jacobs’s Michigan focus for summer is well received with guests and, as he claims, allows for people to get to know good food and a good area.
Boyne’s summer beer and wine dinners run through the summer and into September. Here's a peek at tonight’s menu featuring wine from Chateau Fontaine (June 22) and Boyne’s next beer dinner featuring New Holland Brewing Company (July 7).
