A triple WOOF event by Spoiled Dog Winery was held at Roaming Radish on June 22 as the first in a series of Friday special dinners. Spoiled Dog Winery’s six course winemaker dinner created by Roaming Radish was a culinary delight.
The wine pairings were superb and the dinner benefited Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation (WAIF) in a winning evening for all. Guests were treated with a first course of sesame shrimp bruschetta on herb crostini which was paired with SDW 2013 Estate Rose of Pinot Noir. Salmon poached with Pomo di Moro (apple-pear wine) and apple slaw followed as the second course, with a pairing with SDW Pomo di Moro.
The third course of brown-butter caramelized scallops with wilted kale greens and cilantro chutney paired exceptionally well with SDW 2013 Pinot Gris. The SDW 2012 Reserve Pinot Noir came next, paired with the fourth course of seaweed and cucumber salad.
For the final savory fifth course, saffron Penn Cove mussels, paella rice and Washington asparagus was paired with SDW 2011 Malbec.
Roaming Radish created an elegant sixth course of sea salt ice cream (hand churned) Bon Bons dipped in a chocolate ganache she had made with SDW’s Deception wine, accompanied with candied tart cherries and house caramel sauce.
Quinn Fitzpatrick serenaded with his guitar throughout the dinner. The setting was beautiful overlooking Holmes Harbor, the weather was perfect and everyone left spoiled, full and happy. Woof, woof, woof.
