Last night was the second wine dinner that I hosted at Fare Restaurant here in Philadelphia. By all accounts, it was a smashing success. I had planned to take a few notes on the food and the wine in order to make a more cohesive report on the evening, but I have no idea why I thought I would have the time to do that.
Wishful thinking, I guess.
Or plain stupidity.
I did manage to snap a few photos, however, so I thought I would share them. By the way, the next dinner is already in the works for April 29th!
The theme for the night was “Rhône Varieties” and included a Grenache rosé from Spain, a white and red Côtes du Rhône, two Syrahs (one Chilean and the other from Washington state), and a Muscat from Paso Robles.
Just getting started.
The first course was three types of Bruchetta, which I paired with the Garnacha rosé.
Course two was a scallop and eggplant dish, paired with the white Côtes du Rhône.
Course three was a smoky Chorizo with the red Côtes du Rhône.
You can tell I was getting a bit in the weeds as I forgot to take a picture of course four before I tore into it like a rabid hound–it was leg of lamb with a fantastic Purple Star Syrah (my wine of the night). The last course (which I apparently did not photograph at all) was a lavender cannoli paired with an Eberle Muscat.
So there you have it–all that for $75 all-included! If you are in Philadelphia at the end of April, you should make your reservation now!
