Me and some friends hosted a wine tasting party for Andrew's birthday and all I had to do was buy some cheeses, fruits and crackers that Norma, the wine connoisseur, had asked to provide, but you know me, I was going to make it into a feast!
I asked Norma to send me the food pairings to each wine and from there I came up with this menu:
Cloud Number Nine
White Wine Blend
description: A blend of several white wines with green apple, melon, and floral aromas
paired with: Havarti Cheese and a fruit plate
description: A complex wine with hints of blackberry jam
paired with: Parmegiano pesto pasta salad and a cheese and meat plate
description: This was my favorite. Slight tannins with a long finish. Has aromas of cherries and cranberries
paired with: grilled rib-eye
description: A sparkling wine to entice the taste buds
paired with: chocolate covered strawberries
If you are interested in any of the recipes for these pairings please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be happy to provide them. To throw your own wine tasting party in the greater LA area, contact Norma, she was a lovely host.
