As Summer begins to wind down here in Vermont (so very sad), I thought it would be an opportune time to take advantage of the bounty I’ve been finding at our local Farmer’s Market. The local produce has given me inspiration for a five course meal. Unfortunately, we are not at a place in our lives to consume this much food at one setting. We’ve been trying to cut down our consumption of food, smaller meals, smaller portions. So…what to do? I decided to do a five course meal in five days – with wine of course. The menu has been planned knowing our weather will be very, very warm this week.
I will be writing on the progress of this plan each day – so stay tuned! The menu planned is:
Wine will be a rosé; Rive Sud. This rosé is made from the Pinot Noir grape giving it aromas and flavors of ripe cherry, raspberry, and watermelon. I think this wine will bring out the nuances of the Tuna and the sweetness of the caramelized corn.
This is the plan, we’ll see what actually happens!
