"Nonna's the best!" She is the Crème de la Crème. {Menu}

When Nonna requested a birthday dinner, I immediately came up with a theme when the boys declared, "Nonna is the best!" Okay.


 She's the crème de la crème…so I created a cream-based menu, paired the courses with some of my favorite wines from Holman Ranch, and showcased two creamy creations from the brand-new Kai Lee Creamery. Recipe posting to come.

Warmed Triple-Crème Brie with a Cherry & Fennel Mostarda

Autumn Greens with Homemade Buttermilk Dressing

Paired with Holman Ranch’s 2012 Virgin Chardonnay

Roasted Pheasant in Cream Sauce with Mushrooms

Truffled Pommes Anna with Crème Fraîche

Paired with Holman Ranch’s 2010 Hunter’s Cuvée Pinot Noir

Tiramisù

Lemon Cream Pie  and Ginger Honey from Kai Lee Creamery

Served with House-Roasted Coffee Beans from Guatemala


These are the mini-ghost pumpkin candleholders that Dylan made for Nonna last night.
