Foodies and wine lovers rejoice! In the coming months, chefs and sommeliers at Wit & Wisdom, Aggio, and Fleet Street Kitchen are hosting the inaugural Fork & Cork Dinner series.

This four-course dining and drinking experience kicks off next week on Tuesday, August 18 at Wit & Wisdom.

This series will put a twist on classic competition, in which the sommeliers will have the extra challenge of not knowing the menu until a day before the dinner.

While the seasonal menu is under tight wraps, the chefs are working together to create a memorable meal. “The dishes will showcase our restaurants and our ideas in food,” says executive chef Zack Mills of Wit & Wisdom.

The idea for this collaborative event came from Julie Dalton, sommelier at Wit & Wisdom and Tim Riley, sommelier at Fleet Street Kitchen. “We want to showcase the strengths of our competitors,” says Dalton. “The fact is, we’re all friends.”

While Wit is known for its special events, this dinner series is particularly timely as area restaurants continue to band together to boost morale in the wake of April’s unrest surrounding the death of Freddie Gray.

“In Baltimore, we feel like we have a lot to offer,” says Dalton, “and sometimes its better to work as a team.”

The next part of the series will be a four-course meal hosted at Aggio in September, followed by the final meal at Fleet Street Kitchen in November. The price for each meal is $99 plus tax and gratuity. “Our goal is to make this affordable for what it is,” says Mills.
