Let Me Wine & Dine You...

Tonight was a wonderful event... where we hosted our first Wine & Dine Session. As a result of our trip to Napa/Sonoma earlier this past June, we realized that we wanted to learn about wine, without a lot of fuss. After looking for local events, we found wine tastings to be expensive, overwhelming and unsatisfying. So I decided to create our own events within my Chicago Cooks & Bakers group.

What ended up was an amazing event where we focused on Chardonnay wines. I prepared a BBQ feast with the crispness of Chardonnay wines. After dinner, I shared with everyone the information I learned and found about Chardonnay wines, from their origins, the tasting process and food pairing.

It was such a successful and involved evening, I wasn't able to get pictures during the event. However here is a small sampling of what was served:
