The Enchanting Rhine River Cruise
April 15, 2017


Dave, General Manager & Wine Director of Delius Restaurant
& Louise Solzman, Executive Chef of Delius Restaurant

Dave and Louise Solzman are the husband and wife culinary team behind Delius Restaurant in Signal Hill CA. Louise, who is from England, is Executive Chef and Dave, who hails from California, is General Manager and Wine Director. For the past 20 years they have been at the forefront of the greater Long Beach area culinary scene.

 

The couple met in the early nineties while working aboard the world class cruise ship, Crystal Harmony. Upon returning to land, they settled in Southern California and purchased Delius. Louise has collected numerous awards over the years and she specializes in prix fixe dining and high end private catering where her impeccable timing and attention to detail are brilliantly showcased. One of her favorite things to do is to give cooking demonstrations both in the restaurant and on the many cruises that she and Dave have hosted over the years.

 

While Louise carefully practices her craft in the kitchen, Dave commands the floor. After catching the wine bug in the late 80’s his love of the grape has lead him to teach classes, hobnob with Master Sommeliers and generally use any excuse he can to taste wine around the globe. He is always excited to talk about wine with customers especially when they are open minded towards his personal favorite, German Riesling. Dave believes that you should drink whatever you love, but if you want to discuss theory, varietal characteristics or appropriate food and wine pairing, then get ready to hear his opinion.

 

Dave and Louise enjoy sharing their experience with like-minded folks. Anyone who is interested should join them on one of their many culinary adventures.
