I adore hosting our Carl House wine pairing dinners and want to thank Georgia Crowne and Michael Gibbs for sharing his knowledge throughout our several courses and flights of fine wine.
Chef Max served a delicious passed appetizer on a crisp crostini with prosciutto, goat cheese, peach and my favorite, arugula, that nutty and delicious green! My preference in wines goes more toward the reds, but Michael served up a delicious, crisp, fresh Ferrari Carano, Bella Luce Chardonnay. I’m now a white wine convert! Who knew.
Louie Londono of DJ Louie Productions did a marvelous job of keeping the guests moving and shaking on the dance floor between courses. And to that fun group of ladies on the town, (their husbands dropped them off and acted as designated drivers), we hope you’ll bring your energy and fun to our NEXT wine dinner June 29th, at our new time, 7pm. You looked gorgeous and ooooh, those dance moves. And weren’t those glow sticks fun!
I had a lovely note from Kirsten, “I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for a great time last Friday night. We had the opportunity to attend the wine paring dinner and it was fabulous! The food, the group of people, the staff, the DJ – we were so impressed. We will be back….if you can handle us.” Kirsten, Dawn, and Gini
Oh, we can handle them, for sure!! Did I mention fun….fun, fun!
Tommy Jennings, (yes our Barrow County President) and his vivacious and ALWAYS (here we go again), FUN bride, Danette, attended with family. We had some brides and grooms attending who are considering Carl House as their venue (update, they did book with us) and our Valentine engagement couple, Chris and Adam sat at my table. (Little did I know that Chris is ALSO a mountain bike person as am I)!!
And everso thoughtful Heather Hurlbert attended with her delightful husband Robert, (and she brought me one of her outrageously scrumptious cakes with pecans and oatmeal). We’re delighted to add her to our roster of cake bakers and are pleased that she’ll be at our next bridal event July 29th from 1-3pm.
And speaking of dessert, (which following a tasty Braised Beef Brisket with Onions, Mushroom, and Balsamic Vinegar accompanied by Potatoes Au Gratin), Chef’s Chocolate Lava Cake was a sensation match with my NEW favorite wine, Truffles Merlot with hints of chocolate. What a tasty treat for SURE!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments, we hope to have you back in June!
“We had a wonderful time tonight. Really enjoyed the food and thought that the wine was excellent.” Rodney and Leslie Smith
I’m so happy that Donna and Steve joined us again….Donna ALWAYS with that great smile!
