Is there anyone that comes on Tom's website that hasn't fantasized about being invited to his real table ?
As for wines I am also fond of the Sweeter German wines. Dry wines make me thirsty, lol. A good Chardinay is quite refreshing. I found a rather odd but good wine called Chocovine. Yes it has and tastes chocolatey and it sounds weird to mix chocolate and a red, yes red, wine. But it tastes more like a chocolate liquer. Ooh yummy ! However, these days I can only have an occasional sip. And with all those great micro brewed beers and decadent martinis around it is sad indeed that I can't have more then a tiny bit. Oh well, lol.
As for breads, hmmm, I like all kinds of multi grains, asiago, cibata, Italian, rye, semolina, pumpernickel, sesame. Well all kinds, lol.
Cheeses !?! I love cheese. From mild Monterey to limberger. I especially enjoy the Swiss with a bite, cream havarti and the kind with dill in it as well. Butter kase is good and Stilton blue is heavenly. I like a warm Brie with fig preserves. Five year aged cheddar is totally awesome to. Gorgonzola, gruyere, fetta and other goat cheeses. Quesadilla, ricotta, parmesan, roquefort, Colby-jack, Gouda, provolone, saga blue, mmm cheese! And there is a world of cheeses out there that I will never know. "snif" lol
Deserts? Woohooo! Yes I like them of course I do ! Recently I had a wonderful bread pudding. The name of the bread they used escapes me but it was a small diameter bread sliced very thin. They used a cream brûlée sauce with makers mark bourbon in it. That had honey drizzeled over it and then a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream topped it off. I think it would have been even better if the sauce was stiffened by flame like regular creme brûlée. But it was pretty awesome the way it was. Of course I'll never turn down a chocolate cake with fudge icing, lol.
All of a sudden I feel a bit peckish. I wonder why ?
