Polish it off: Chocolate Mousse to end the meal

January 6, 2011

After the many different varieties of flavor delivered during our Anne Amie Wine Dinner, a rich Chocolate Mousse was really the only way to end things. The decadent treat worked marvelously with the remainder of our Pinot Noir to satisfy every taste-bud and signal the close of a delicious meal. Makes you wanna say “Amen!” […]

From Scratch: Homemade Cheese Plate with Fresh Fig and Raspberry Reduction

December 28, 2010

A bright gem in the center of the Anne Amie Wine Dinner was the delicious homemade cheese and fresh fig served with 2009 Anne Amie Pinot Gris. This is one of those tasty instances where the food is sweeter than the wine. The nectar tartness of the fig pressed against the sour raspberry and fell […]

Local Taste: Triggerfish with Oyster and Leek Fondue

December 26, 2010

For something really tantalizing, a creamy fondue spiked with the signature saltiness of local oysters really did the trick. The Triggerfish was served with a 2009 Anne Amie Cuvee A Amrita that was warm and sparkly. Clean and bitter Amrita set against the flaky and creamy Triggerfish made for a memorable dish that cleaned up […]

The second course of the Wine Dinner featured Red Porgy paired with a 2008 Anne Amie Cuvee A Muller Thurgau. I was lucky enough to be sat with Mark Marhefka of Abundant Seafood and supplier of the fish for the evening. He gave me a little background info on this Red Porgy: it is classified […]

December 14, 2010

Amen Street knows their seafood and this was evident in the opening course of the Wine Dinner. Course one was a Seared Jumbo Scallop served with Bacon and Buttermilk Blue Cheese Risotto. Truly mouthwatering, this buttery scallop and risotto were cleaned from the tongue by the berry tones of the 2008 Anne Amie Cuvee A […]

Perfect Pairings

December 5, 2010

Upon entry to Amen Street, I always feel welcomed and everyone else seems pleased to have me there as well. The bar echoes with laughter and sparkling discussion. Only a handful of people populate the high-ceilinged space on this chilly afternoon, but the warmth generated by the kitchen and the conversation fills the room. The […]
