If not make sure you eat and drink like you were there, right down to the wine pairings. Megan, over on Wine & Spirits Daily, turned me onto the culinary version of what’s in store for the day. I’m dusting off recipe books and heading out to do some wine shopping. Here’s the menu:
Appetizer: Seafood stew paired with 2007 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc
Main Course: American birds (pheasant and duck), sour cherry chutney and molasses sweet potatoes paired with 2005 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Dessert: Apple cinnamon sponge cake paired with Korbel Natural Sparkling
If you are looking for something a bit more casual grab your favorite local take out and a bottle of the Yes We Can! from Periscope Cellars.
Love to hear what you will be drinking in the comments? I’m leaning towards making the meal layed out above. I’ll update here if/when I track down the recipes. Either way finds some that works for you and welcome our new President to office. Wish him luck, he’s going to need it.
Editor’s Note (15-Jan-2009):
Just learned via Dr. Vino’s post that Duckhorn and Goldeneye are actually made by the same company. Wonder where Korbel fits into this picture?
