Another Great TVWS Wine Dinner – Telaya Wines

It was really a super night. Fine food and wine. Great friends! Telaya Wines, Carrie Sullivan presenting, were paired quite well with the buffet! The Chef and all of his Staff, did a superb job in presenting the buffet courses at the correct time and in the suggested order. Gail McClellan Parker does a super job in working the kitchen in suggesting the meal and paring the wines. Here is the menu for the evening and the wines. Please look at the winery link above and read their history. It’s interesting!

“Through Telaya–a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa–they could establish a home base from which they could take others on a journey.”

Wild Rice Pilaf
(I certainly did like this. Especially with some of the demi glace on it!)

“Pilaf is a dish in which rice is cooked in a seasoned broth. In some cases, the rice may attain its brown or golden colour by first being sautéed lightly in oil before the addition of broth. Cooked onion, other vegetables as well as a mix of spices may be added. Depending on the local cuisine, it may also contain meat, fish, vegetables, pasta, and dried fruits.
Pilaf and similar dishes are common to Balkan, Middle Eastern, Caucasian, Central and South Asian, East African, Latin American and Caribbean cuisines. It is a staple food and a national dish in Afghan, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Bangladeshi, Balochi, Bukharan Jewish, Cretan, Indian, Iranian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Kurdish, Pakistani, Swahili (Kenyan, and Tanzanian-Zanzibari), Uyghur, Uzbek, Tajik and Turkish cuisines.” [Wikipedia}
