Hmm, I seem to be focused on food and wine lately, but here’s a good deal. Really, four courses with wine pairings for $55 per person? Not too shabby. It takes place Friday, March 20, at Camden’s Hartstone Inn, where Chef Michael Salmon does wonders in the kitchen. Here’s the menu.
• Savory Crab Cheesecake with a Lemon-Walnut Crust and Tossed Greens (Pascal Toso – Sparkling Wine)
• Celery Bisque with Maine Lobster, Wild Rice and Crisp Pork Belly (Dry Creek Chenin Blanc)
• Cranberry Sorbet
• Braised Beef Short Rib “Wellington” with a Phyllo Crust and Winter Squash Puree (Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon)
• Tangerine Crème Caramel with Plumped Apricots and Candied Rind
Lodging packages in conjunction with the wine dinner begin at $215 per double for one night, $280 for two nights (that’s two people, one room, including the dinner).
