Janet Cam’s philosophy “Wine is the Universal Language” has taken her around the world. Her goal of normalizing Chinese cuisine in America is shown in this course. Come and explore Cantonese, one of the eight great Chinese cuisines, with wines that will heighten your tastebuds and mind. Cam will prepare authentic heritage dishes passed down from her grandmother and mother. Her unique background in French and Chinese cuisine is a natural bridge between nouvelle cuisine and Cantonese cuisine in using the finest and freshest quality produce to enhance the essence of the dish.
Janet Cam is a Culinary Strategist and wine expert, best known as the co-founder of DC’s storied restaurant, Le Pavillon, the first nouvelle cuisine restaurant in the U.S., honored with Wine Spectator’s Grand Award for their wine list. Cam’s clients have included Chef Peter Chang and his Q restaurant group (Q by Peter Chang, Mama Chang, and Nihao – named Esquire magazine’s best new restaurant 2020), The Cosmos Club, and Vino Volo wine bars. Cam conducted 48 wine and food pairings delivered during the Covid 19 lockdown. Most recently, she paired wines for the dinner prepared by Chef Peter Chang for the Smithsonian’s gala honoring legendary cookbook author and food historian Grace Young, the 2022 James Beard Humanitarian of the Year Award recipient.
