I could just gobble you right on up...

So, in my continuing love for food... I have developed a truly splendid 5-course meal plan that I cannot wait to test-kitchen and chronicle herein. Here is the outline:

Course One: Toasted-almond crusted goat cheese with a rosemary-infused honey glaze atop a warm crostini with micro greens.

Course Two: Mixed greens salad with pear, feta cheese, and crushed pistachios with a fresh lime vinaigrette.

Course Three: Jalepeno-lime Turbot ceviche with sriracha garnish.

Course Four: Roasted chicken with a shallot & Riesling sauce with cinnamon and ginger butternut squash and fresh steamed asparagus.

Course Five: Warm peach cobbler with a curried white chocolate ice cream.


That's right. Eat your heart out. Now, I need wine pairings.

Hmm... I don't know how well it'd reheat.

Well, I spent a weekend up north disconnected from so much as a cell phone signal, and just haven't really gotten back into the swing. I'm workin' on it, but work has been really intense so I come home and the last thing I want to do is look at a computer screen.

Well, obviously I have to give you the wine pairings as I work AT a wine bar ;)

Picking a similar Riesling would probably be an OK choice, but I would personally go for either a blend like Seven Daughters (http://www.7daughters.com/) or choosing a Gewurztraminer or possibly a Muscat wine would compliment the sweet notes, balance the spice and sour notes, and play perfectly with the cobbler.

I need a wine for each course!
Now, do you think a drier white would be bad for the salad course? I was kind of thinking it would play will with the vinaigrette. I have been imagining wet salad, not dripping, but coated.

Also, I do need your help on finding a wine for a spicy dish... because... Jalepeno ceviche hello.

I enjoy your Muscat suggestion immensely! I shall have to locate a bottle and sample.

Honestly, I think that's the best part of coming up with things like this... the test-kitchens and sampling dozens of wines and ingredients until you get it juuuuust right.

Also, I expect you to send some overnight in return for my fantastic suggestions ;)

How about I just make some for you when I come down to your wedding? That way it'll be fresh!

I also have a fabulous scallop ceviche in a cucumber cup recipe that makes adorable little appetizers... if you're even remotely interested. ;)
