My family will be coming to dine with ChrisTonite on Febuary 12th. My mom and her sisters will join for a surprise 4-course dinner and wines. I still have to figure out the menu but the choices are broad. Not very picky eaters, so that’s always good.
Pictures from last night’s ChrisTonite. The highlight was that the wines I had picked matched very well with the courses, so the year at the academy paid off. The Riesling and the beet salad with tarragon mayonnaise were an awesome match! The white Bergerac wine suited the mackerel terrine perfectly. Sadly, the terrine itself failed to harden completely, so it was more like a mousse than a terrine. Oh well, live and learn. The Gamay from the Savoie in France went very well with the lamb roast and the herbal salsa complemented the wine whereas the duxecelles suited the sweetness of the lamb roast.
