New Year’s Eve 2010

To celebrate 2010 and to ring in 2011 a small group of friends gathered for an intimate seafood dinner.   We organized five courses paired with wines.  Here’s a little recap of the evening’s events:

Course One

2004 Jean Marc Brocard Chablis, France

Course Two
Mexican Seafood Salad
2009 Woodbridge Sauvignon Blanc, California, US

Course Three

Course Five

It was an amazing night to remember for years to come.  I hope everyone reading this blog enjoyed a special New Years Eve too.   Cheers to a healthy and delicious 2011!
