Emily’s Birthday Dinner was soooo good. I got some really great pics and decided to post this in parts! 1st the food that she and Trevor prepared was delicious. She did it in 5 courses and paired each course with a glass of wine.
The Wine: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay,Merlot,Toscana and Shiraz.
The first course a cheese course accompanied by the Pinot Grigio ~Ecco Domani~
The tower of cheese was amazing but everyone seemed to really love the Fromage D’Affinois that was like a Brie really melty and gooey.
The Cheese Course was amazing, I don’t think anyone stopped passing around the cheese until it was gone. Grapes and figs rounded it off.
Next more wine……..with this fun decanter attached to the bottle. Chardonnay ~ Mischief Makers~
The next course was the salad. I almost forgot to get a picture of this so this was the very end. Endive, mandarin oranges and toasted nuts.
The third course was a sweet potato french fried served with a dipping sauce and ~Smoking Loon~ Merlot
The dipping sauce was a mix of BBQ sauce and raspberry preserve, so simple and went great with the sweet potato.
The final course of the night was the dessert. It was a brownie that had a hint of pepper and red wine with a graham cracker crust served with cocoa marshmellos.
The ~Four Sisters~ Shiraz ended the night and went wonderfully with the rich brownie.
