Our First Sommelier Deathmatch

My dinner party friends and I have been upping our dinner party ideas for years now. We used to go out and enjoy sampling menus with wine pairings and trying new restaurants.

Then five years or so ago, we started cooking for each other. It started simple enough, but over time when you get a couple of foodies together, well, things can start to get out of hand.

A November Dinner Party Menu with Wine Pairings

Last Friday, I hosted a small dinner party with two of our closest friends. It was a much-needed date-night-in considering we really can’t get out.

The Menu

  • Cocktail: Candy Apple Whiskey Sour
  • Appetizer: Loaded Sweet Potato Skins
  • Salad: Pear, Maple Pecans, and Arugula Salad with Fig Vinaigrette
  • Main: Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon over Pureed Sweet Potato and Roasted Broccolini
  • Dessert: Ricotta Apple Fritters
