First 5 course dinner

July marked the first 5 course dinner for ChrisTonite. I had only close friends over and a sold-out house with 8 guests. The French-style menu was complemented with an extraordinary wine from Jiménez-Landi, Spain, a 2008 Cantos del Diablo. A small vineyard that produces biological wine and only brings out bottles if the harvest and quality is good enough. Went very well with the entire dinner and the magnum bottle lasted the entire meal.

Dinner was great, thanks also largely to sous-chef Michel. Preparations went smooth and dinner was easy with 2 seasoned chefs in my kitchen!

The magnum bottle of Spanish red wine was a thank-you gift from my friend Albert-Jan for photographing his wedding. So I’m happy to say it was an awesome wine and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
