(post, David Silva)
This past weekend was one of my best friend's birthdays. We decided to have a wine tasting party instead of going to the vineyards on Long Island purely out of budget. Check out the pairings we made: Rose (One from France, the other from Portugal) - Fresh Figs with Chevre Riesling (Two German ones) - Roasted Bosc Pears with Manchego on Baguette Slices We had three reds (Bordeaux, Pinot Noir, and Syrah) to go with a batch of Mojete (A Spanish dish of roasted tomatoes and peppers with black olives braised in Sherry and Molasses). Oh! And who could forget the Port! We paired that with Ghiradelli Chocolate, but as the one bar we bought slowly diminished, I had to run to the Bodega for some Hershey's bars. I know, I know, it's kind of trashy, but hey! Hershey's never tasted so good!! I would have taken more photos of the prep and cooking, but sadly, my camera died while roasting the Mojete. We will miss you, dear camera... but ... Happy Birthday, Rob!!
