Paul and Jackie chose the mysterious, yet oh so tasty wine of Austria for our January wine dinner. Then Paul proceeded to create the most unbelievably good Austrian food I've ever tasted. I had schnitzel once in Germany at a famous German restaurant, made by Germans! And Paul made it better. He really did! I hate to say I was surprised...but hey, I kinda was! I mean, he's a good cook and all, but he truly outdid himself (and the Germans) for this meal.
And as Jed says, the spaetzle Paul made was very special, indeed.
I could go on and on, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves:
And last but not least, I had to document the "twins"

We hosted a wine dinner at our house shortly after the presidential election. Not only was this several months ago, but I'm fairly certain I was drowning my sorrows that evening. All I remember is we served some food I had bought on a recent trip to Italy. I also shared a wine I had purchased there. I have only 1 photo from the event. Thankfully, it's of the food, not my tear-stained post-election face.
