Last Wine Night for 2017......

The lovely Jo from the Captains Daughter in Havelock, invited us back to the last Wine Night of the year.

This time it was Adam from the wonderful FROMM winery with a lovely selection of wines.  Once again the food was spectacular and I can't wait for the new season to begin next year.

On another note though, they are going to see if they can hold a cider and beer night - this pricked up both mine and the hubby's ears.

It has been a lovely couple of visits to the wine nights and I must say a big congratulations to Jo and her team (and don't forget the amazing selection of winery's) for holding such successful evenings.

We began the evening with a lovely Chardonnay matched with Stuffed Mushroom caps with garlic, onion, breadcrumbs, cream cheese and a pepper couli.  Wow!

Then we had what would have been my favourite dish of the night......  Sticky Rice Cake, Fermented Raisins with an Asian Beef Soy Salad all served with a Syrah.

Then last but not least, served with a lovely sweet Riesling (and an equal favourite, because Desserts and I go hand in hand)  Whiskey Snaps with Salted Cashew Crumble and a Nashi Compote. Wow!!!!!!!!
