Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting

Just before I headed to visit my stepmom in Florida, she’d left a voicemail on my home phone.

“Are you interested in a gourmet food and wine tasting dinner on the day after you arrive? Let me know”

I called back, “I’m in!”

Here was our menu:

Here were our courses:

The little corn pudding (to the left) was exquisite! Everyone was applauding it. Like a little corn custard cloud. Oh my!

Somehow, to my dismay, I missed taking a picture of the next course which was beautifully presented and delicious.  Sorry about that!

And last, we were offered a lovely ruby Port to cap off the evening.
