This San Francisco native is one of the most important people of the wine and food industry. As the son of chef and author Joyce Goldstein, Evan began his career at a young age in the kitchens of some of the most highly regarded restaurants of the bay area and beyond. In 1987 he became the youngest person ever to pass the Master Sommelier examination and his wine lists have received countless awards. His extensive abilities and thorough knowledge of the wine and hospitality industries have allowed him to lead educational seminars all over the world. He’ll be signing his two books: Perfect Pairings and Daring Pairings, A Master Sommelier Matches Distinctive Wines with recipes from His Favorite Chefs. Be sure to stop by to purchase a copy!
Visitors may join us in the J Balcony Lounge at 2pm for an informal discussion with Evan Goldstein followed by a meet & greet with this enthusiastic and knowledgeable authority on wine and food alike.

Caldwell will feature two hors d’oeuvres from Evan’s cookbooks: The featured recipe from Perfect Pairings will be Ginger & Orange Fried Chicken paired with 2009 J Vineyards Viognier. The featured recipe from Daring Pairings will be Roasted Pork Shoulder with Pan-Roasted Carrots paired with 2008 J Vineyards Pinotage.
