Shetler’s House, Mexican-Italian Fusion
I was pretty excited about this party when I heard it would be Mexican and Italian food and a Super Tuscan tasting! I wasn't disappointed.
Lemon Basil Guacamole on Crostini
Sundried Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella and Parmesan Quesadillas with Italian Salsa Verde
Refried Cannellini Beans with Blue Corn Chips
Italian Sausage Stuffed Anaheim Chiles
Tortilla Wedding Soup
Carne Asada Lasagna
Chicken Mole Penne
Italian Squash with Cilantro Sauce
Panettone Tres Leches with Cajeta Mascarpone Cream
Super Tuscan Wine
First Place: Wade’s Luce 2007, Toscana. Started off good with balanced spice. Maintained its flavor and complexity to the end.
Second: Shetler’s Regina Di Renieri, Toscana. Started off bold and was my favorite. It softened considerably with decanting and slid into second place by the end of the meal.
Third: Gilberts Le Difese, 2013, Toscana. Started off soft and smooth with delicate notes of berry. Lost all structure and immediately became flavorless.
