River City Supper Club #5

River City Supper Club # 5. B and G hosted the event this time and took us on an Asian journey. The table and place settings were beautiful.

We were greeted with Thai tea. Very refreshing.

We then made our way to the back patio to sip 2006 Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume while the first course was being prepared.

The first course was Vietnam-influenced with two types of Spring rolls and a fish cake.

Paired with a 2008 Pigmentum Malbec Rose from France.

The second course was also inspired by Vietnam – Mussels with lemongrass.

Paired with a 2007 Domaine de Saint-Antoine Rose from France.

The third course shifted us to Korea with Maeun-tang, a fish and seafood spicy soup with mushrooms. No picture available, unfortunately. The soup was paired with a 2007 Les Champs des Plantes Pouilly Fume and a 2008 Fritsch Windspiel Riesling from Austria.

The main course was also from Korea and featured Bulgogi – a marinated beef lettuce wrap

And Japchae – a mushroom and beef noodle dish.

The wine pairing was a 2007 Syrah from the Collines Rhodaniennes region of France.

And last to satisfy our sweet tooth – Chinese inspired Mandarin orange ice cream with sesame brittle.

What an abundance of delicious food and flavors. I had never had a Korean dish before or Thai tea. The wine choices were well thought out, tasty, and refreshing. We took our time with dinner and conversed a great deal (I have to say that discussing the merits of Weird Al Yankovic was a low point, however).

Thank you B and G for a wonderful evening!
