i made the blinis together with my wife. This was fun since it was the first time i was making these alone. I used to make them with my grandfather when i was younger. i think they turned out well - thin and tasty but i'll elt the others comment.
Sveta, my wife, loves to play with salads. Chunks of blue cheese - Gorgonzola and St. Laurant(?) were added to fresh spinach and slices of pears. the combination was lovely. went well with the wines.
Frank cooked this beauty. the sauce was great - the grits were a revelation and for me - the fish was amazingly well cooked. Juicy and delicious. Thanks Frank
there is nothing like juicy rare piece of lamb to go with red wine.
The pear Tart Tatin, made by Louise, was perfect. and it matched the kracker. Thanks - can you belive that its the first time i have tried this?
The Blueberry and sourcream tart is great - Sveta is really making strides in deserts and that matched the PX well. And yes - we finished almoust all of the desert - i couldnt walk though...
Thanks again - to everyone. The evening was a pure pleasure - an oasis away from the terrors of everyday routine :) Seriously - it was a great day and i hope we can do this again. and soon!
NOW I MUST go to Denmark. :) as soon as i get enough wines to bring with me.
