High Cotton Peach Dinner

1 Comment

You have heard me comment several times on how wonderful the peaches are here so when I saw this special meal come up a few weeks ago I just had to sign us up.

Last night we celebrated Bob’s birthday again with a fancy night out at our favorite restaurant High Cotton.  They had a special “Peach” of a meal paired with wine.  Below is the menu.  The wine is from Italy.  Besides the great food eaten during this 4 hour meal we had the company of 7 other people at our table.  It was really fun.

Each course was delicious. While you are sitting there eating it is easy to forget one really important thing.   All six courses visually were works of art.  You could taste how good the food would be as soon as you looked at the beautiful plate.     Most of the items weren’t really heavy with peach flavor.  I can’t pick a favorite.  The dessert was a trio of desserts each with a different temperature from warm to chilled and a different texture and flavor.  It was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.

The expert that talked about each of the wines really expanded my knowledge of Italian wines.  We had three whites and two reds.  An absolutely perfect dining experience from food to wine to company and conversation and of course the great ambience  of High Cotton and it’s great view.   We even got to take home a couple fresh peaches to enjoy at home.
