Chef Aaron Tekulve of Surrell Dinners is matching up his talent and creative food with awarded Woodinville winemaker Darby English of Darby Winery. Aaron is a former Sous Chef to Jonathan Sundstrom of Lark and an apprentice of Lauren Thompson Chef de Cuisine of Cafe Juanita.

Lark's Head Baker Ben Campbell and Owner of Ben's Bread has worked with Aaron for years and when asked about Surrell Dinners and coming to these dinners he had this to say "Aaron is a true artisan in every sense of the word.  The dedication he puts into every dish he serves is almost impossible to replicate.  I love serving my bread an an accent to his menus due to his creativity and focus.  Partnering with Aaron and/or sitting down to one his dinners is a no-brainer; It is difficult to decide which experience I like more."

Dinners will be held September 1st and 2nd 2015 to celebrate the bounty of the Pacific Northwest summer demonstrating Chef Aaron Tekulve’s inspiration and ability to create truly delicious food and showcasing a pairing of Darby English’s amazing wines and their incredible depth of flavor.
