Mimi of Israeli Kitchen and I gave a dinner party for a few Israeli bloggers this past Thursday. It was a lovely event which included a wine tasting given by Irene, who happens to be a wine steward for two well known Israeli wineries, Golan Heights and Galil Mountain. The next several posts will feature some (in italics) of the recipes and wines that were served at the dinner.

The dishes we served at this dinner would be perfect for an elegant Shavuot meal. The menu was as follows:

Amuse Bouche
Grilled Baby Portobello Mushroom with Tomato Sauce and a Mini Potato Pancake

Salad
Baby lettuce leaves and rocket with Blue Cheese and Silan (Date-Honey) Candied Walnuts


Main Course
Grilled Fish in a Spicy Citrus Marinade (recipe at Israeli Kitchen)

Sides
Corn Pudding with Fresh Herbs and Fontina
Fresh Green Beans with a Shallot Butter
Mimi’s Homemade Bread

Dessert
Saffron Semifreddo with a Dried Cherry Cardamon Sauce
Miniature Orange-Almond Financiers


Mimi’s Homemade Liqueurs
