|Thanksgiving Napkin made by Mia|
However, food and wine do help to raise the level of any occasion or celebration. While roast turkey is not one of my go to dishes, I do enjoy having it on Thanksgiving. For the past half dozen or so years our oldest daughter Gina and her husband Nick have hosted the day at their home. Gina is a terrific cook and always turns out a great meal. We began the meal buffet style by partaking of a delicious antipasto, compliments of her father-in-law Vinny. Nuts, homemade corn muffins and fruit skewers also rounded out the buffet. A wonderfully crisp and elegant 2004 Bzikot Puligny Montrachet les Foliatieres Premier Cru was the perfect white for both the appetizers and dinner. It was crisp, clean, unoaked and focused with a long delicious finish. Current vintages available are the 2008 & 2009, both at $90. 56º Wine, Bearnardsville, NJ.
