Our annual Hallowine Dinner on Thursday, October 23rd was spookier than ever! Eerie decorations and bewitching bites set the mood for the evening. Guests were welcomed with an assortment of frightening finger foods including Devil’s Eggs, a Sinister Spread, Guacamodly Dip served with black tortilla chips and Butternut Canapes. Sangria was served out of (none other than) a bubbling cauldron.
The first course was served – oysters on a half shell covered in green monster mucus! It may be a horrifying sight to the eye, but it was a tasty treat to the mouth! These grim creatures were complimented with Torres’ Verdejo.
Individual soup kettles made of Witches Apples and a Decomposed Salad consisting of roasted butternut, cranberries & spiced vinaigrette served with Santa Digna Cabernet Sauvignon was a horrifying, yet delicious bite!
The main dish was the spookiest of them all, Poisoned Pork! Bacon wrapped pork loin, acorn squash risotto, blood orange gastrique
and mustard greens were perfectly paired with Sangre de Toro Garnacha!
Finally, guests were able to sink their teeth into a devilishly delectable dessert! Who can resist a dark chocolate bavarois filled with pumpkin cream cheese mousse, topped with a chocolate spider web with a ghoulish meringue ghost served on the side?!?
Halloween would not be complete without a costume contest! The mother & daughter cat & mouse duo took first place, a scary witch took second and the infamous couple of Dominos took third! Take a look at our winners…
A special thank you to Southern Wine & Spirits for providing all of our mysteriously tastful wines! I hope that you will all join us next year for a SPOOKTACULAR good time filled with grim decor and great friends!
Bon Appetit Y’all!
