This month’s Dinner and Wine Tasting, Saturday, 1/24 at 7pm.

To start:
Warm Shrimp and Spinach Salad  served with Cono Sur Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2013.

January is traditionally our Cassoulet Dinner so that
will be our main course.  Mine is a blend of Julia Child’s recipe and Anne Willan’s from The Country Cooking of France (Thanks, Greg!) A rich combination of bean, pork, lamb, and sausages baked with goose fat and other flavorings, it is always a favorite.  It will be served with Bluegrey, a wine Keogh discovered on her trip to Spain.

Next, Keogh’s Cocktail will feature Square One’s Organic Basil Vodka.

For Dessert, simple Tarte Tatin served with Ayala Champagne.

As always, we do need reservations, so give us a call.  The price, $55,  includes dinner and beverages but not tax and tip. All tasted beverages will be offered for sale at a discounted price.
