Housed in a former Gilded Age mansion surrounded by Italianate gardens, Evergreen Museum & Library is at once a prestigious collection of fine and decorative arts, rare books, and manuscripts assembled by two generations of Baltimore’s B&O Garrett family, and a vibrant, inspirational venue for contemporary artists. The collection counts among its many treasures post-Impressionist paintings, Chinese porcelain, Japanese lacquerware, a Léon-Bakst designed private theatre, and one of the largest private collections of Louis Comfort Tiffany art glass.

A Bubbly New Years Celebration at The Evergreen Carriage House and Museum

On January 11th, 2013, Chef’s Expressions partnered with Meals on Wheels to welcome in the New Year with a special Wine Supper at the The Carriage House at the Evergreen Museum & Library. Instead of the traditional pairing of food and wine, Chef’s Expressions decided to put a New Years spin on the menu by pairing each course with a different sparkling wine.

The evening began with a pop, as guests were greeted with the first champagne of the night, Casteller Cava Rosé.

Guests were then seated for supper, where they indulged in a five-course culinary extravaganza! The menu consisted of seasonal flavors fit to  pair perfectly with our special selection of bubbly.
