365 Days – Bis on Main

A mere 365 days after the first dinner…another journey to a series of European dishes.

The starter. Potato Crusted Goat Cheese : Olive tapenade, red pepper relish, pickled onions, crostini.

The salad. Arugula Salad: Bleut de chevre, pecans & Champagne vinaigrette.

And for the entree round. 

Mine :: Potato Gnocchi : Oven dried tomatoes, pine nuts, pesto and Grana Padana .

His :: Shellfish & Saffron Risotto : Arborio rice with saffron, prawns, scallops, mussels & clams.

Followed by dessert…not to be shared!

Mine :: Berry Lemon Tarte : Fresh berries, strawberry coulis and whipped cream.

His :: Pecan Pie : Tony’s secret recipe served with fresh whipped cream ((please substitute bourbon ice cream))

All accompanied by:

  • An amazing bottle of wine — Reynvaan * 2009 * The Untamed Syrah — an ode to Walla Walla Winemaker’s Dinner that didn’t happen. Redeemed tonight.
  • A box of roses arriving at the table.
  • Fabulous conversation and reminiscing of “best” and “favorites” and “must be repeated” and what else we want to share to find new “bests”, “favorites” and “repeats”.
The Untamed Syrah deserves a little more than a bullet point. A smokey taste from start to finish. And some chocolate hints. Long, long finish. Delicious with every course. The winemaker notes “The Unnamed Syrah is loaded with aromas of peach, tangerine, wild blackberry, smoke and hints of lavender and a trace of caramel. This elegant wine is created to be enjoyed in its youth but will evolve over the next 7-8 years.”
