Get a taste of the Iberian Peninsula right in the West Loop when Eden (1748 W. Lake) hosts its wine dinner series Nov. 14. Five dishes — like Tajarin with smoked mussels, cumin-grilled lamb and figs and ricotta for dessert — will each be paired with a selection of limited-edition Spanish wine, from Casa Reserva Brut Nature and Bodegas Pardevalles to Oloroso. A portion of the proceeds from the night will benefit Hephzibah Children’s Association, Oak Park’s oldest social service agency. 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. For tickets ($125), click here.
Get this: With more than 2.9 million acres of vineyards spreading across the country, Spain is the third largest producer of wine (following France and Italy), and is responsible for more than 600 grape varieties.
