Delmonico Steakhouse to Host One Night Pork Dinner Featuring Templeton Rye

LAS VEGAS (September 9, 2014) – Delmonico Steakhouse and Templeton Rye join forces to host the ultimate evening of pork and whiskey on Saturday, Sep. 27. For one night only, Delmonico will offer five special menu items created by Chef de Cuisine Ronnie Rainwater and Culinary Director Sean Roe in participation with The Templeton Rye Heritage Pork Project. The program raises Duroc pigs with superior pedigrees on a specially formulated diet of the spent grain from making Templeton Rye Whiskey. Mixologist Max Solano conducted a fat-washing process utilizing the pork’s belly with Templeton Rye Whiskey to create two unique libations highlighting the savory infusion.

Templeton Rye Cocktails

Mesquite Manhattan

Pomme & Swine

Pork and apple, oh my! Delmonico takes the amazing traditional pairing flavors of these two items to a whole new level. Once again, it emphasizes the special infused Templeton Rye whiskey and pairs it up with a hint of St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, freshly squeezed lemon juice, fig marmalade, organic apple bitters and is topped off with a Granny Smith apple foam.
