Dessert Decadence
On Saturday evening, I attended a dinner party at the neighbors which is quickly becoming an annual tradition. This was the third annual "Dessert Dinner". Basically, invite a bunch of your friends over, serve a lovely, light meal, and follow it up with five or six courses of desserts and about an equal number of bottles of wine. Total decadence.

The theme this year was Italian, to represent their recent honeymoon to Positano, Italy. Nothing says Italian like risotto, so there was a lovely course of lemon risotto and asparagus followed by an awesome veal scallopini. Then things got serious. Beautifully presented homemade cannelloni, canoli, individual creme brulees, panna cottas and cake. It went on and on. Funny thing is - nothing was left at the end of the evening.....

Especially the wine:

Good friends, good food, good wine - mix well and serve. It's a good thing.
