Naturally we ate and drank very well the entire day. A magnum each of 2010 Clos Sainte Magdeleine Cassis Rosé and 2010 Domaine Terrebrune Bandol Rosé were the perfect quaffs to beat the 90º heat. Simply delicious, they were enjoyed by even the red wine drinkers in the group. I wrote about these two gorgeous wines in my last two posts, so if you would like more information, please refer to them. They are usually available at 56º Wine in Bearnardsville, NJ and Chambers Street Wines, NYC.
Shrimp cocktail and Maui Coconut Fried Shrimp from Runners Seafood Restaurant in Lavalette were served alongside the Taralli.

We finished with two homemade desserts. My lovely wife Carol made one of my favorites, Banana Cream Pie. It was fabulous. My sister made a marble cake that was made with ricotta that was simply amazing. It was moist, light and delicious.
