Dinner at the B&B
Yesterday we cooked dinner at the B&B. Our guests were two great couples who didn't know each other before, from Canada and Germany. Everyone in the kitchen knew how to cook, and knew how to drink wine too. The menu we settled on was:
Chantrelle Mushrooms sauteed in Barbera Wine (Rob from Canada)
Fried Zucchini Flowers (Astrid from Germany)
Ravioli Plin with Sage and Butter (from the fresh pasta store down the street -- filled with prociutto, mortadella and roasted veal)
Pollo Saltimbocca (Tim from Germany) (an O recipe!!!!)
Roasted Mixed Vegetables (Susan from Canada)
Mascarpone Cream with Lemon, Lime and Vanilla (Diana) with Chestnut Cake (from the local bakery)
Costa dei Platani - 2004 Barbera Superiore
Massolino - 2003 Barolo
Forteta della Luja - 2007 Brachetto Passito
- and a wonderful Barbaresco which I will post later.
It was a fabulous evening, with great conversation and great company!
