Bob's Starters to go with The Schramsberg Reserve...
A good Combination!

wpe5C.jpg (21476 bytes)
Marjorie Enjoys a Sip of the Schramsberg.

wpe61.jpg (14741 bytes)
Bob explains some of the "secrets":
"Good bread crumbs from flavorful, sweet baguettes.  I use Acme and a little bit of Grace Baking breads.  And the bread crumbs need to be slightly coarse, not ground to a fine powder.  Fresh seafood is mandatory!  I'm using scallops, prawns, calamari and some snapper."

wpe64.jpg (28812 bytes)
This cutting board seemed like a visually pretty "still life."

wpe66.jpg (16854 bytes)
Bob garnishes the plate with some fried parsley, a nice enhancement.
We tried a Colle dei Bardellini 1999 "Pigato," a very light white wine from Liguria.  We concluded this, while a perfect wine for such a plate, would probably be at its best in some trattoria in Portofino, served with Bob's Fritto Misto del Mare.  Nice, but light and simple.
Better was the La Carraia 1999 Orvieto from the "Poggio Calvelli" vineyard site.  This is a blend based on Grechetto with Verdello, Drupeggio, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Chardonnay.  This wine has hints of golden apples, apricots, vanilla (fermented in French oak and aged for about 2 months in wood)...it could use a slightly higher level of acidity for the Fritto Misto, but we enjoyed it immensely.

Marjorie toasts to Bob's Home Cookin'!

Bob prepares the wild mushroom sauce for his superb veal roast.  The kitchen was modern in 1960, perhaps.

wpe6C.jpg (15192 bytes)

 


Bob prepares to plate the main course:
Veal Roast with a wild mushroom sauce.  (Bob is an avid mushroom hunter and, so far, nobody has died at his table).
Roasted Potatoes.
Green Beans.




wpe6A.jpg (29924 bytes)
We compared two Bordeaux wines with Bob's Veal Roast with Porcini Mushrooms.
Both were from the 1998 vintage.

The Pichon Baron showed nicely, hints of cedar box and blackcurrant fruit.  I am not certain that I don't prefer the 1997 and 1996 vintages of this wine.


Curious to taste this fellow's "top" Bordeaux, I wanted to see what Chateau Chambrun 1998 tastes like.  We had this guy's 1998 Chateau Mouton in the shop and like it very much.  It's a great wine for $16.99.

The Chambrun is a "Lalande de Pomerol" appellation and costs about $55 a bottle.   It was rather rich and full, hints of plummy Merlot fruit on the nose and palate.   I'm not sure either of tonight's reds is worth the price, but we enjoyed them.
