April Fools Day was on a Saturday this year. We decided to do a 'backwards' Dinner. Starting at the end and finishing at the beginning. We were a little uncertain as the theme is very different from our normal. To our surprise, this Event Sold Out quickly.
We started with Dessert from Patisserie Angelica cheesecake and added many sides, as if it were a Cheese Plate. Served with two wines, 2013 Brut Rose' and 2013 Valdiguie.
Next up Entrée - Steak au poivre with local black trumpet mushrooms. We put two wines, Mat's pick and my pick.
A 2009 TnT Pinot Noir and our 2014 Syrah. The group was divided 50/50 although everyone loved both of the wines. The pairing was even steven. I did like the 2009 TnT Pinot with the course which was Mat's wine pick.
Salad Course next - Classic Wedge Salad. We served three wines, Chardonnay, Rose' and Pinot
The table did not look like this at the end of the evening but many April Fools jokes were discussed. It will be many years before we have this first of April fall on a Saturday to entice our Foodie fans to partake.
