Spreading Holiday Cheer One Great Meal at a Time

Holiday Cocktail Pairing Dinner

Chef John Richardson and Classique Wines & Spirits Pair up a Delicious Feast

Wow...  What a fun evening to kick off the holiday season!  Below are pics of the fabulous cocktail pairing dinner provided by Chef John Richardson and Classique Wines & Spirits, thanks to owners Diane & Dennis Raab.  Thanks, too, to Guest Chef Patrick Peterson for all of his help in pulling the dinner off.  Finally, a big "hats off" to The Chef's Garden, The Fabulous Fish Company, and Dan's Country Meats (to name a few of our purveyors).  These fine folks provide wonderful food.

It was hard to get a lot of photos in between serving, but we tried to capture some of the evening to share.  Check out our Facebook page, too, to see what others have posted or shared.  Thanks to all who came out for this fun evening!
