With Fall comes all of those wonderful Fall flavors... squashes, root vegetables, hearty greens, herbs, apples, spices, and yes, pumpkins.
Let's celebrate Fall flavors with a pairings dinner party. Bring a dish that incorporates fall flavors, and a drink that pairs with it. For example, I'm considering making a butternut squash soup with apples, and pairing it with a dry riesling, or a roasted pork loin and pairing it with a pinot noir. Pairing drinks do not have to be alcohol, but of course it's fine if they are.
Plan to bring a dish and drink that serves about 8. When you RSVP, indicate whether you'll bring an appetizer, soup, side, main dish, or dessert.
If you have an idea for either a drink or a dish, but don't know what to pair with it, just post a message and I'll send you some options from my pairings encyclopedia.
