Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to pair Walla Walla wines and grapes with simple, yet scrumptious tapas dishes, many featured here on the blog over the past few years.
With six courses, a beautiful evening with a lovely 9-hole golf course in Wallowa County as the setting, amazing help from a handful of people I can’t thank enough, the evening went off better than I could have expected.
As I promised on Friday’s post The Weekend, below is the menu with links to each of the recipes and wines. All images were taken by Allison Cornett who kindly captured all of the photos for the event.
Savory Palmiers with comté and Dijon mustard
Sugar Snap Peas with Pancetta and Parmesan

One thought on “Alpine Meadows Food & Wine Pairing Event”
Congratulations of the try! I am very font of menus. It is a great opportunity for someone to taste dishes and wines in a short term that may never had the opportunity before. These tries worth to be “exposed” to the people. And which place is better for something like that than a golf course. I wish someone could do something like that to the golf course in my city.
Looking forward for your next attempts.
