Saggitarius Dinner Party
Our favourite Sag in the whole wide world loves having "CH" evenings. All of her favourite foods start with those two little letters.
High on her wish list are: Champers (our bubbly is called Chirac), chicken, chips, Chardonnay, cheeses and chocolate, to name a few.
With this in mind the Sagitarrian dinner party menu was created to celebrate Sagittarians, Christmas (another blessed “CH” word), and the most charming of foods and wines that start with the letters "CH", all in the one meal.
Featuring Christmassy coloured elements of red, green and white throughout, this is a fun and festive dinner party menu, hatched in order to entertain our tireless, born entertainer herself, our wonderfully funny, curious, adventurous, mischievous, fiercely independent and selfless Sagittarian friend.
Cheers 'Rene. Cha cha cha!
The Pièce De Résistance of the Sagittarius Dinner Party are the Chocolate Cherries!
Choose your favourite cheese from Warrnabool's Heritage Cheddars.
Serve with Bloodwood 2014 Cabernet Franc.
Quite a few mouthfuls of delish "CH's" in here, and to top this dish off it's best served with another "CH", Bloodwood's 2014 Chardonnay.
Many years ago Paul Merrony used to serve a yoghurt panna cotta with salad. Peter Conistis at Omega served a quirky Greek salad presentation of fetta panna cotta with cucumber jelly, tomatoes, olives etc.
This cheese panna cotta is my adaptation.
For the Cha Cha Cha of desserts it’s coconut cake and custard all the way, with lime jelly, fresh raspberries and mango, all in a wine glass (these are many of 'Rene's favourite things!).
Being Irish, our friend Rene just loves her chips and champagne, a rather more-ish combination I've written about before.
