This terrific trio paired with Clay Mauritson of the noted Mauritson Wines from Heladsburg, CA to craft a wonderful 5 course Mauritson Wine Dinner on April 4, 2018.
First course was Seared Lemongrass-scallion Crusted Red Snapper, ginger-pineapple beurre blanc, and caramelized plantain, paired with an exquisite wine - 2014 Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc.
3rd Course was the oh- so-tender slow-roasted Niman Ranch Porchetta pork belly rolled with loin, ground shoulder and Iberico cured ham, with parsnip puree & fig, joined with the 2014 Rockpile Jack's Cabin Zinfandel.
The pairings were spot on, as was pacing of the courses. We saved room for the 5th course; Chocolate Mousse with banana caramel sauce, a superb passion fruit curd, garnished withbrûléed bananas and a petit macaron.
