Wine Party a smashing success!

We had a lovely time preparing and enjoying our wine tasting party Saturday evening. The BG and I had so much fun setting it up and cooking up some crazy foods we had never tried. The BG actually did all the cooking. I just cut up the breads and cheeses and made the chocolate covered strawberries.

We had about 10 different kind of cheeses.  Blueberry cobbler chedder, cranberry cheddar, tomato basil, smoked cheddar, extra sharp cheddar, olive cheese, onion and chive….yummmmm.

The BG made Bruscetta with Crostini, Stuffed Figs with Gorgonzolla, Sauted Mushrooms with grilled pollenta.  They were all prepared with fresh herbs. I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures of his food. It was sooooo super delicious!

Here he is smelling the Thyme.

We also served 5 different fresh loaves of bread with two types of olive oil for dipping. We made one with Tuscany spices and one with rosemary.
