Our 26th Anniversary Dinner

For our 26th Wedding Anniversary, we went to Le Cafe de Paris in Boise and, as usual, it was fantastic. For starters, the Foie Gras with Brioche Croutons and Pickled Cherries was fantastic as was the Buttered Poached Lobster Tail with Local Field Greens and a Tarragon Vinaigrette. The 1983 Chateau de Sales bordeaux, from our cellar was big, dark and hot - high alcohol. Good acidity but the fruit was fading somewhat. Dark cherry with mushroom and tobacco overtones. It went quite well with the Halibut Papillotte with Roasted Morrel Mushroom Consomme, Saffron Potatoes and Petit Pois. It also went extremely well with the Filet Mignon with Potato Puree, Haricut Verts and Truffle Compound Butter. Well, you be the judge. Watch the slides. Cheers!
