Ya Wide I think we need to put together a cook-a-thon. The only problem I can see is the folks would probally never leave with all the food we have out. You seem to be strong in the tomatoe sauces, which has always been a little weakness of mine, however I make up for it with my exordinary soups, my meat glazes, and my madra sauces which goes on my beef wellingtons with a 36 layer fold puff paste pastry.

My Dinner last night went something like this:

With a nod to ALL of the cultural influences from my and Beth's cultural heritage, we decided on an ecclectic approach to dinner.

1. Maryland Blue Crab Bisque, seasoned with Old Bay -- Baltimore (where we grew up)
2. Brusccetta (?) -- my mothers side (we typically get all 70 of us together on Christmass Eve to eat a seven course seafood meal - God bless the Southern Italians!)
3. Brussel sprouts in drawn butter - Beth's moms side
4. Au Graten potatos - Beths family favorite
5. Honey baked Ham - Every bodys side, but a standard in the Carroll (my fathers side) household
6. Chocolate Mochi Balls - We live in LA now :D
7. Chocolate Genache Torte - who cares why -- it's awesome!

During dinner, we went with - of all things - A chardonnay from J. Kerr Reserve 1999 Santa Barbara County. This is a unique Chard in that it isn't very oaky, but has a strong body that can really compliment any food except red meat. It was perfect.
Dessert saw us with a Raspberry Framboise from Bonny Doon Vineyards Santa Barbara.

Most of this was already on hand at the house, but when you put it all together like this...WOW!
