A Sparkling Wine Dinner at the Barnstable Restaurant and Tavern

Since we know that you will not be trying any new recipes this week, we thought we would share a very special holiday celebration with you.  The Barnstable Restaurant and Tavern  https://www.capecodrestaurants.com/dining-guide/all/12_barnstable_restaurant__tavern/ is a place that locals  frequent to enjoy their favorite comfort food.  But each month, during the off-season, Chef Bob Calderone wows his guests with a special wine dinner.  The highlight of the holiday season is Chef Calderone’s Sparkling Wine Dinner that took place this year on December 10.  Take a look at the dishes the lucky attendees dined on.

 

The first course was a Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare with Smoked    Salmon,Caviar, Cucumber and Sriracha Mayo, paired with a Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noir California sparkler.

 

 

 

 

Next was a Warm Seafood Bruchetta with Sea Scallops, Rock Shrimp, Clams and        Mussels paired with Bruno Gobillard Growers Champagne.

 

 

 

 

 

The main course was a Grilled Marinated Lobster Tail with Roasted Butternut          Squash Risotto, Apple Cider Butter and Sage, paired with Veuve Cliquot Rose                Champagne that was sabered by Diane Slater, Wine Manager of Cape Cod Package Store Fine Wine and Spirits.                                                                                                                                   https://www.capecodpackagestore.com/.

 

 

 

 

And the “to die for” dessert was Chocolate Decadence with Berry Puree and                   Raspberries paired with Cuvee Laurent Muscat Rose Provence.

 

 

 

There was also a finale, but you’ll have to wait until next week for that – maybe there will even be a recipe with it.  Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
