Mid February Already!

Fennel and Asian Pear Salad with Sweet Coppa Wrapped Apple and Citrus Dressing Slow Cooked Short Rib and Parsinp Puree with Port and Prune sauce

So, it's president's day and I believe that I am guilty of neglect to my food blog. My apologies. And so much has happened. The Seattle Works Benefit Dinner was a success! Lovely setting, lovely company and great food and wine. Marcus Pape of perfectly paired 4 different wines with 4 of my menu items. Just about all went well- minus a small error of the dessert- which I will fix next time I make it. Marcus is an incredible graphic designer too and he created a fantastic full color recipe and wine pairing booklet for the guests to take home. You can see it in the left hand corner of the top picture. Inspired by the idea that Marcus and I could go a step further with our two passions- his being wine and mine- food. We have started work on our first Wine and Food pairing recipe booklet. Look for it in wine shops!!
