Along with our friends Dave and Tawnya Senior, we gathered at our friends Beth and Bob Herman’s home for a food and wine extravaganza. We had gotten together a couple of weeks earlier to work out the details of the meal and each couple agreed to provide 2 courses with wine pairings. As with most events with this group there was some food creep and we ended up with 8 courses not including the appetizer, sorbet or frozen grape palette cleansers. Here's what the kitchen looked like before the frenzy began.
Course 2 was scallops with chorizo and sautéed fennel and tomato.
