You might remember hearing something about a little contest we were running earlier this month. We called it the Ultimate Dinner Party and, well, it happened. Not only were our guests fantastic (although we all know it'd have been even better with you), but the food was...righteous. Which may explain why all of my photos have an almost ethereal glow to them. Or maybe that's my Photoshop learning curve. Either way, LOOK AT THIS MEAL!

soup
Behold! Path Valley Butternut Squash Soup with Creme Fraiche, paired with Weimer Gewurztraminer.

tuna
And next? Chilled Tuna with a Salad of Local Pears, Yuzu, Fresh Chilies, Daiikon Radish, and Ramari Soy, paired with Adelsheim Pinot Gris.

fish
Third up was Wild Kodiak King Salmon Fillet over Organic Pumpkin Risotto with Velvet Pioppini Mushrooms, Baby Pea Shoots and 20-year-old Balsamic Glaze, paired with Colli di Lapio Fiano d’Avellino.

bison
And the penultimate? New Frontier Bison Strip Loin with Winter Greens, Truffle’d Potato Puree and a Red Wine Bordelaise, paired with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.

Canolli
Finally, dessert! House-made Cannolis with Spiced Hot Chocolate, paired with Vin Santo.

Final verdict from the table: Stuffed, buzzed and perfect. Thanks, Cashion's!
