Food and drink pairings on Flickr by beFOODled.
The Gastronati, my group of foodie friends, is taking a break from the country-and-its-cuisine theme to experiment with some more creative dinner ideas. This month we did food and drink pairings. Each couple brought a mystery course with a mystery drink pairing. Peanut Butter and Jelly hosted and were responsible for the appetizers. They made a really light and refreshing apple soup and some amazing venison croutes with apple chutney. S and brought the main course, salmon spinach pastry, a great party dish that's only five ingredients and looks way more complicated that it actually is. We paired it with a chardonnay. Calimocho and Squeaky brought dessert, some delicious pears poached in and paired with a fortified wine. Stay tuned for some of the recipes and more deets on the drink pairings in the next few posts.
