Hmm, cold, rainy, windy, … is that the siren call of the fried oyster? It is here this week-end, nice fat Chesapeake Selects. Also on the menu now are hanger steaks with Caramel-Horseradish sauce, grilled tuna with an Orange Dipping sauce, Scallops Sublime, pork rib-eyes, flounder and Henny Penny. Reservations are made by calling 804-472-4385.
Only one wine offered as the Wine of the Week. We were given an amazing deal on a California pinot noir and we’re passing it along until next Wednesday. Pine Ridge Winery from the Napa Valley has a side project called “Forefront”, for which they source high-quality grapes from other growers. Through next Wednesday afternoon, we are offering the 2012 Forefront Pinot Noir for $160.00 by the case of 12. If you’re into buying wine by the case, do your homework on our friend the internet, and you will quickly see just how good of a deal this is. Couldn’t be easier; reply to this mail, we will email you a secure invoice to which you enter your credit card info and send it back; next Thursday your order will be here waiting in our climate-controlled storage area, from which you pick it up at your convenience.
Next wine dinner is Thursday, November 6th. The theme is Southern Hemisphere wines, by which is meant South America, Australia and New Zealand, and South Africa. All these regions make world-class whites, and as soon as I told Matt from Country Vintner about the theme he sent info on 91-92 point reds in the right price range. The dinner is four courses of food and wine pairings for $55 a person. For a reservation either call Good Eats or reply via email.
Next week will bring news of classes at the School of Good Eats, but until then, this is all the good food news. Thank you for your strong support and
We hope to see you.
