Dallas Uncorked Annual Harvest Dinner

Last week we held our annual harvest dinner at The Grape Restaurant on Greenville.  Fully packed into the charming back room of The Grape we sipped incredible 2006 and 2007 Hidden Ridge Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and noshed on Chef Brian Luscher’s perfectly paired menu:

First
Sauteed Gnocchi, chef’s italian sausage, chanterelles, and oven dried-tomatoes
Main
Kobe Flank Steak Roulade, roasted Barking Cat Farm’s peppers, manchego
creamy polenta, red wine-balsamic jus
Final
Baby Belletoile, plum-ginger-port jam, Tassione spicy mustard greens

A festive celebration of local produce paired with hearty, rich and intense mountain fruit packed Cabernet from Sonoma County.  The night was a wonderful success, with proceeds benefiting The Stewpot.

The Stewpot is a not for profit organization started by The First Presbyterian Church on the edge of downtown Dallas with a goal to help our cities homeless by giving them hot meals, in coordination with The Bridge, medical and job assistance, child assistance and help in getting homeless back on their feet on their own.  We will be giving a $500 donation to The Stewpot.  Thanks to everyone who joined us!
