Our lovely dinner by Chef Bob

Yum
I wanted to share with you Bob's lovely Valentine meal he made for Ashley, Eric and me. He is such a good cook and we are truly blessed by this!



Our opening course of crab cake on a bed of roasted red pepper aioli with jicama sticks.



This delicious salad with gorgonzola cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts, edameme and greens was accompanied by a goat cheese brie toast with sundried tomatoes. Mmmm.



Our little beggar. Truman does not have as good table manners as Wilson does.

Our main course was panfried scallops with shrimp. Under the seafood was creamy sundried tomato risotto. It was Bob's first risotto and it was delicious.



Dessert. I needn't say more.



As part of our dinner, Bob had us trying to identify the notes that were in each wine we tried. These little vials contain scents that are typically found in certain types of wine.

Another fabulous meal by Chef Bob!

  11. Each time I see one of Bob's meals I am even more amazed! he has such a gift! the wine testing/tasting alone gets my vote! : )
    Our Kipper doesn'thave the best table manners but he is usually quiet...MOST of the time. But if even one crumb is dropped he swoops in! : )
