« Playing around with vegetables, part II: Provencal style stuffed zucchini | Main | Catch of the day: stuffed squids, Neapolitan style »

June 18, 2004



Guess the wine evenings are just great - we have had a couple! Most recently we got our friends in pairs (or more) to bring wines that illustrated some difference - an old world and a new world chardonnay; a dry and a sweet Riesling; a single cultivar and a blend - the possibilities are endless. We tasted all the wines blind and then had to guess what they were - the best answers won a bottle of sparkling wine. It is such a great way to spend an evening!

Hope you enjoyed the German wines - I am a huge fan!


Jeanne, thanks for sharing your experience, sounds really fun. At the moment I only need a wee bit of time to organise a similar evening and... a baby sitter :-)

I went trough the whites in the tasting box, all Germans: they were OK but certainly not the best German wine can offer. German whites can be fantastic, pity it wasn't the case here. The German reds are a different story, not a big fan, in general to light for my taste.
