NEW YORK, Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — For the second consecutive year, the world’s top ranked tennis player, Novak Djokovic, has partnered with the official wine of the US Open, Jacob’s Creek, to screen the next installment of their ‘Made By’ film series in the U.S. market. The films were shown at an exclusive dinner at The Refinery Rooftop, part of a series of ‘Our Table’ events that celebrate the moments that are created when friends and family come together.
Guests at the event enjoyed a range of dishes, chosen by Djokovic and Executive Chef Jeff Haskell, including Djokovic’s own zucchini lasagna recipe—served raw and gluten free—which is currently being served at the athlete’s recently launched restaurant in Monte Carlo. “Food is a huge passion of mine, and has always played a big role in my life so it’s a pleasure to share it with others,” said Djokovic.
The Jacob’s Creek ‘Made By’ film series, which has received over six million views since its release, offers a revealing look into memorable meals that have true resonance in the tennis star’s life.
The first film, ‘First Date’, describes Novak and his wife Jelena’s first dinner date in Monte Carlo, a story they still laugh about today. The second, ‘Tradition’, takes viewers back to Djokovic’s childhood, as he shares personal memories of special meals that his family celebrated together.
