Hors d'oeuvres: small Canapes (smoked salmon, Shrimp ceviche, spanish tortilla)
|The shrimp ceviche was served with gazpacho elements on a asian soup spoon. I absolutely love these flavors and had at least two spoonfuls! I would buy this ceviche gazpacho by the quart to go or for lunch.|
|I can never go wrong with smoked salmon especially paired with creamy cucumber it' classic fresh and light. I admit I did not try the spanish tortilla because I have been eating so many eggs lately.|
|The pinot grigio paired nicely with the two appetizers I tried. Very tasty with the acidity of the ceviche and the smokiness of the salmon.|
Black Hog Organic Field Greens and Heirloom Tomatoes, Crispy Prosciutto and Champage vinaigrette, dinner rolls and butter.
|A great start to dinner I really enjoyed the tomatoes and crispy prosciutto|
|This Cuvee de Blanc was sweeter than the first glass I had but not too sweet. I remember Chad comparing it to a Reisling or Gewürztraminer .|
Duck cooked two ways. Mandarin roasted duck legs with asian vegetables and seared duck breast served med rare with citrus sauce.
Moroccan Lamb Tagine served with cous-cous. Braised lamb with apricots and roasted vegetables served with lemon scented cous -cous.
Black Hog Farms Organic Chicken cooked in Riesling. Pan seared chicken on the bone, braised with chicken stock, riesling, tarragon and cream served with pan roasted vegetables.
|Chicken looked lovely and I had a taste but I really enjoyed the duck & lamb much better|
|Loved these root veggies|
|I was last in line and the fingerlings were gone I'm sure they were great but I'm glad because I had plenty on my plate|
|The lamb sauce was very rich and the cous cous soaked up the juice perfect with it|
|Before I even tasted it I guessed the lamb would be the star, maybe because it happens to be a favorite of mine|
|The lamb's glamour shot|
|I choose the duck, a small piece of chicken, lamb, root veggies and the cous cous it paired well with the syrah. The lamb and duck were outstanding!|
|I skipped dessert and went with a second glass of syrah!|
