Prudence Uncorked is now closed

It’s a GIRL!
Welcome please, our new chef,
Jesmika Moreno!

Oh, Prudent Revelers, if you only KNEW how much the Statesman Journal wanted this scoop! (No, really! The emails were literally FLYING!) But we decided our faithful Prudent Revelers should be the first to hear the official news. In early November, we asked veteran Chef Jesmika Moreno to take charge of our kitchen. Of course, she said no. (Seriously! She did.) But it became SO clear to everyone that she belonged with Prudence that 24 hours later, she changed her mind and said yes. And oh my, the difference she’s made--- we just can’t tell you. You’ll have to taste it for yourselves! (OH, OH, OH, and here’s another little secret for all those attendees who raved about our November 10 wine dinner --- Jesmika made all the courses!)

So it’s time to rejoice… LOOK at our December Frolics!
December 8 Winey Wednesday Paired Affair

Wednesday, December 8, starting at 7:00 instead of our regular 6:30 pm due to the holidays, we match our scintillating food to Andrew Rich’s intriguing wines! Five courses (including shaved fennel salad, rack of lamb topped with olive tapenade, and a lemon cream puff with a pineapple reduction, just to mention a few) with five wines (Andrew Rich’s Sauvignon Blanc, Coup D Etat, and Gewurztraminer Dessert Wine, just to name a few more) make for an evening that sparkles with holiday cheer. $65 per person, BUT…only $110 per couple (and by couple, we mean any two people on the same bill). Seating is limited and begins at, so please make your reservations soon! 503-362-0888. (And Marsha, we are expecting you!)

December 3, 10, 24, and 31, father-son guitar duo José and John Troncoso bring their repertoire of original arrangements of contemporary and traditional Latin pieces and more traditional classical pieces, as well as original compositions. The duo plays classical guitar, also known as the Spanish guitar, and their soft, mellow sound makes an excellent musical backdrop for a romantic evening out. José and John Troncoso will add selections from their CD "Classical Guitars" to their repertoire during the month of December.

Uncorked! Dinner Theatre

What a kick in the head our dinner theatre shows are! And our musical variety is GOBS of fun! (Well, honestly, what can be better than audience participation during a rousing rendition of “A Partridge in a Pear Tree?” Especially when it comes with a 3-course dinner with dishes such as “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Short Ribs” and “Chocolate We have Heard on High Cake”?) We’ve made it easy to attend, with shows tonight and December 8, 9, 10, 11, and 15. (Sorry --- the Dec 18 show is sold out.) Dinner shows $35 per person/Appetizer shows $20 per person. Please call for information and reservations: tickets are selling!

Hope all goes well with the kitchen change. Any word on where she's cooked before? Facebook just said 11 years of fine dining experience...

Exciting news! Can't wait to try the new chef's work. But I have to say I read about this Tuesday on the SJ's blog.
