The Buzz had another great and different venue for this monthly tasting. Paring cheese with wine. Really a great way to present not only the wines, but the different cheeses and how to prepare the cheese in different entrees. Cristi has been doing some real “soul searching” to come up with some different venues. I like it. Even Tommy, Cristi’s husband, and Peggy Hands-Behrens are enjoying preparing the plates. Look at those smiles! Enjoy these photos. Cheers! Left-Click any of these photos to see enlarged.

Chicken Cordon Blue
2012 Wente Chardonnay
