Wine Food Pairing in the northeast!

Excerpts from an email from my good friends Pat and Bob..... Wine Food Pairing is popular with all my friends!

Just Returned last night from Pat's brothers in Rhode Island. Quite the eat fest!! The first day we went on a boat ride for a water tour of Narragansett Bay, followed by a dinner prepared at their house overlooking the bay, of fresh mussels and linguine. The Yellow Tail Cav and Chardonnay went well with everything.

Friday started early with a 7 am cast off for a fishing charter for the boys. We ended up with 28 Blue Fish all in the 8-12 lb range. A blast!! The Capt said he was going to put us in his Hall of Fame! Friday evening featured fresh grilled blue fish with a mayonnaise horseradish sauce. Again the 2 Yellow Tails worked well. Yummmmmy!

Saturday featured a lazy day around the house, with the main activity be smoking the remainder of the blue fish. Starting with a brine featuring Jack Daniels, we did several batches using several different dry seasonings, applied after the brining process. Again....yummy. Saturday's smoking activities were briefly interrupted to obtain the fixings for dinner. A quick trip to the commercial docks in Newport yielded 14 1-1/4 lobsters for $5 each....right off the boat. Although the smoking activities required great quantities of beer, the lobster went well with the Yellow Tail !
Sunday am brought about eggs Benedict for brunch complete with a "scratch" hollandaise sauce. A late lunch consisted of left overs, including a wonderful lobster salad. Once again the Yellow Tails complimented all of the treats. Even with all of our best efforts we did fall a little short of last years record of 1 stick of butter per person per day.

YIKES!!!!! Sounds like Wine Food Pairing at its best! CHEERS!
