This weekend I have the honor of hosting my friend Cynthia Cosco of Passaggio Wines and a few of her Passionistas in my home for an afternoon dedicated to “Celebrating Spring”.
The menu is set, the groceries have been ordered and tomorrow night after work I will begin preparing for a Sunday afternoon of friendship, food, and wine.
I hope you will follow along as we post, laugh and share a few recipes and favorite wine pairings.
Below is the planned menu to be served as a casual welcome then a sit down dinner in three courses:
Duck Foie Gras Torchon
Dry-Cured Saucisson Sec
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
Tomato & Bacon Bisque
Salmon Cakes over Pea Shoot & Almond Pesto
Pinot Noir Glazed Spiral Sliced Ham
Fresh Sugar Snap Peas with Prosciutto
Spring Rainbow Carrots
Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
Beet Salad with Walnuts & Goat Cheese
Trio of Sorbets
Garnished w/ fresh mint
This menu is just in time for Easter.
