What is your experience level with wines? (e.g. I am just starting out; I enjoy wine with most dinners; I am very familiar with most varietals and know their typical characteristics; I am an expert with a large wine cellar)
Intermediate. I've spent quite some time in Germany and some time in France with family. It's about Essen and not frissen :)
What is your experience with eating gourmet foods? (e.g. I have not had much experience; I enjoy it when available; I eat at the French Laundry every chance that I get)
I have an open mind and palate. Whether in morocco South Africa or somewhere else in the world a well prepared and placed meal is a treat.
How familiar are you with wine paring? (e.g. I don't drink wine with a meal; I don't pair I just open the closest bottle; I put thought into what wine will go with the meal; my cellar allows me to pick the perfect wine for every meal)
I put thought in and enjoy a slightly nontraditional choice
What is you experience with cooking gourmet dinners? (e.g. I have no experience; I have limited experience but want to give it a try; I cook as often as possible)
I love to host. I have several standby recipes such as ratatouille with freshly baked bread but I don't have a wide repertoire. Can I host and someone else cooks?
Are you a potential host of a gourmet food and fine wine dinner? (e.g. no thanks I just want to participate in the dinners; I might be willing to give it a try; I love to cook and plan on hosting events)
Can I host and someone else cooks?
I'm glad to be back in nv. After many years of city living and heavy travel I'm glad to be home again.
