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.
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/.
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!
