First, SOHO will pour a Mount Eden Chardonnay 2016 from Edna Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut add interest to the core lemon, mineral flavors. Of all Mount Eden’s estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true character. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California’s longest-lived white wines.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Granville “Farmhouse Cuvee” Pinot Noir 2017 from Dundee Hills. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The Farmhouse is a perfect example of Dundee Hills character. Brimming with succulent red and black fruit, herbaceous with slight cola nuances on a silky frame and deepening through the finish. Effortless drinkability–drink now or later, you won’t be upset either way.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Annabella Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,

“The 2017 Annabella Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning example a classic Napa Valley Cabernet. Enticing aromas of cassis, Bing cherry, and a hint of strawberry mingled with tobacco and dark chocolate. In the mouth, the voluptuous, broad wine shows flavors of ripe black cherries, root beer, and graphite, with a textured mid palate perfumed by well-integrated French oak. The finish is exotic with hints of wild flowers and nutmeg.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!

Next, SOHO will pour a Petit Clos Pinot Noir 2017 from Marlborough, New Zealand. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Pinot Noir grapes from our youngest blocks deliver vibrant, youthful wine that are fruit driven and lively yet elegant with supple tannins and lovely balance. Petit Clos Pinot Noir tells the promising potential of our terroir and is the open door that teases you to go on to discover our estate wines.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block 2017 from Western Cape, South Africa. Notes on the wine,

“The nose is dense and brooding, yet opulent, with its compote of dark, ripe plums and blackberry and attractive whiffs of liquorice, violets, cocoa and mint. The black fruit and perfume of the nose follow through onto a rich, savory palate with flavors of dark cherry, red currant, black olives and cured meat. Fine grained, svelte tannins are in perfect balance with the lemony acidity, lending complexity to the mid-palate. The wine is full-bodied with a rich, smooth mouthfeel.”

banner-regions-mobile

First, SOHO will pour a Kim Crawford “Rise & Shine” Pinot Noir 2014 from Central Otago, New Zealand.  The winemaker offers,

“Colour: Intense dark ruby red. Aroma: Intensely lifted notes of blackberries and plums. Dried thyme and sweet, spicy oak aromas give this wine an intriguing nose and balances the fruit aromas nicely. Palate: Rich and full flavours of plums, dark forest berries and spice. Ripe and luscious, the fruit flavours are well framed by silky tannins, giving the wine structure and great length.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Penfolds Koonaga Hills Shiraz 2017 from Barossa Valley, South Australia. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Red mulberry and raspberry coulis are immediately observed. Blueberry, bramble and earthy elements are offered with a little more encouragement. A steely and slatey texture surprises on the palate, being mentioned before fruit generosity. Tannins are sleek and supple and oak lies beneath spice and berries, almost providing the foundations for them to be layered on top of.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Wirra Wirra Vineyards Church Block 2014 from South Australia. Notes on the wine,

“Dark red hues with medium intensity. Excellent cherry jam and Turkish Delight aromas. Also, some dark cherry, and a hint of sarsaparilla. The palate is deliciously fleshy, plush, supple and chocolatey, and the tannins are beautifully integrated into the fabric of the wine. This McLaren Vale blend does not disappoint. Top value.”

An ever so slight hint of menthol briefly appears just as the fruit rolls all the way through to the back end.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Zoey Zelinka Is Featured In The Atlanta Business Cronicle!

Wine & Dine: Soho’s Joey Zelinka learned to love cooking making hoagies

1-chef-joey-zelinka-jv_750xx3636-4848-0-0

By   – Contributing writer

 

About 20 years ago, a staffing issue opened up a delicious new world to then-teenager Joey Zelinka.

“Basically when I was 16 or 17 I was a dishwasher at my friend’s mom’s hoagie shop,” recalled native South Floridian Zelinka, now 36 and the executive chef at Soho American Bistro in Vinings. “One day, one of the cooks didn’t show up. I jumped in, and I knew right then this was what I wanted to do. We were super busy. I had been working maybe five feet away from the line, and it never dawned on me to try it.”

Turns out, one person’s absence, along with being in the proverbial right place at the right time, was the perfect recipe to inspire Zelinka to seek a career in a profession that’s proven fulfilling and fortuitous — one he said he can’t imagine life without.

Since that early foray into the culinary world, Zelinka has moved and gained more experience at various restaurants and enterprises over the years, delighting palates and filling bellies in metro Atlanta along the way. His efforts have included pop-up restaurants Junk Food and Babcia’s Fine Polish Food; his executive chef position at The Sound Table on Edgewood Avenue; and his creations at Soho, among others.

He participated in the kitchen incubation program at Joystick Gamebar, also on Edgewood. His Junk Food concept a few years ago included notched-up takes on classic comfort foods, such as the “potato chip taco” featuring a six-hour braised oxtail and other high-quality components, according to the menu posted on Eater Atlanta. The fish in the “fish sticks and shrimp hushpuppies” was bone-in snapper sticks that had been dredged and fried, and included gribiche, described on the menu as “fancy tartar sauce.” One reviewer on Junk Food’s Facebook page proclaimed in 2015 that Zelinka “has an amazing talent and the skills to back it up!”

More recently, five-star ratings and reviews about Soho’s offerings on Opentable.com describe the food as “amazing,” and “absolutely wonderful.”

Zelinka’s culinary education happened in the United States Coast Guard. “I realized that college wasn’t for me and I had to do something.” He started as a food service specialist second class with the Coast Guard, according to his bio on Soho’s website.

Zelinka didn’t have to look too far for inspiration. “I decided the military was the best way to go. My grandfather spent 32 years in the Coast Guard. That made my decision. I think everything was a set-up for what I am today,” he said.

The path definitely has benefits. According to the Coast Guard, the starting salary for food service specialists is $46,595 — that’s more than $11,500 higher than a civilian sous chef — and comes with health insurance, tuition assistance, the Coast Guard’s accredited food service speciality school, and more.

“When I was getting out of the Coast Guard, everyone was telling me ‘Don’t make the Coast Guard your career,’” Zelinka said.

Fortunately, the ingredients for a promising profession came together. “My best friend’s father [the same friend whose mother owned the hoagie shop] was partners with Douglas Rodriguez,” Zelinka said. In the late 1990s, Newsweek had named chef Rodriguez — who claims to be the “Godfather of Nuevo Latino Cuisine” on his website — one of the top 100 people influencing the approaching millennium. Zelinka said he worked as a line cook for about a year and a half at Rodriguez’s OLA restaurant.

While he’s moved on and up since his humble beginnings, Zelinka’s passion for his calling is still as piping-hot as his first stint as a fill-in cook at the hoagie restaurant. The experience “turned the light on for me for sure,” he said.

 

Q. How did you get into the restaurant business? It seemed like the obvious transition when you want to become a chef.

Q. What’s your favorite meal and drink preference, and why? It would have to be a Hoboken Hero with hot peppers at the Hoboken Cafe in Marietta, and a Mexican Coke. It’s just my favorite meal. It’s everything for me.

Q. What are some pantry staples you can’t live without? Hot sauce, from Tabasco to the most obscure Mexican ones.

Q. If you could prepare a meal for anyone in history that you admire, who would it be and what would you cook? [Musician] Brad Nowell, and I’d make burritos.

Q. What career advice would you give to new chefs? Figure out if you love it. If you don’t, get out.

Q. What do you like to cook at home? Breakfast.

Q. Any specific breakfast? Nothing specific, just breakfast.
