Grand Opening

August 23, 2009

Thanks to all who joined us for our Grand Opening. We had a great time. We had an amazing cheese table from the Traveling Cheesemonger. If you need something fabulous for your next corporate event, we can hook you up. She also does cheese classes!

Other than the cheese, the most popular items were the Wine Sorbet and the Sparkling Sangria.

The sorbet is stupid easy.

Place 1 bottle of wine (I have only made this with red wine, but I am going to try a Rose this weekend. I will let you know how it goes.) in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and use a long handled lighter to ignite the surface. When the flame goes out, add 1 cup sugar, the zest of one orange (use a vegetable peeler to make big strips) and 1 cinnamon stick. Cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until you can smell the orange and cinnamon.  Pour through a strainer into a large rectangular (8×13) Pyrex pan.  Freeze until solid. Using a stiff spatula, scrape out in chunks and place in food processor. Pulse first, then blend until creamy and return to freezer. (Can be individually portioned and returned to freezer.) Serve as a dessert or palate cleanser between courses.
