First Course: N’;Awlins BBQ Shrimp – Succulent Shrimp cooked with Garlic, Creole Herbs and Spices, Lemon, Butter and Beer, served with Crisp Garlic Crostinis to soak up the delicious sauces.

Paired with “Abita Amber” Beer, New Orleans, LA

Second Course:Gazpacho Verde – Chilled Vegetable Soup made with Tomatillos, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers, Cilantro and Jalapeno Peppers, Pureed with a touch of Garlic Aioli for creaminess. This vibrantly refreshing soup is topped with slices of fresh Avocado and snipped Chives.

Paired with “Babich Sauvignon Blanc” New Zealand

Third Course:Beef Wellington “Rossini” – This dish is a cross of two epicurean delights – “Beef Wellington” and “Tournedos Rossini”. Choice Filet Mignon steaks are topped with rich, savory Pi¢te Foie Gras (last few days to enjoy this delicacy in California!!) with Black Truffles and Mushroom Duxelle, wrapped and baked in buttery Puff Pastry. This decadent dish is served with a classic “Sauce Peirgueux” which is a Madeira Wine Reduction with shaved Black Truffles and thickened with lobes of Foie Gras…Delicious!

Paired with “Alexande Valley Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma, CA

Fourth Course:Chocolate “Molten Lava” Cake – Bittersweet, Molten Chocolate Cake with fresh, tart Raspberry Coulis, served with Fresh Raspberries and Whipped Cream

Paired with “Four Vines” Late Harvest Zinfandel
