Napa-tastic!

First, Fairway invited me to an awesome cooking demonstration and tasting.  Then Napa & Co. topped that last Monday night with a special "blogger dinner," featuring five amazing courses and dessert, all paired with wines.  Our little club comprised three ladies from CTbites, Dan and Kristien from OmNomCT, Frank from RestaurantsCT.com and a bunch of self-proclaimed Napa groupies.

Mary Schaffer and Charles Morgan, the owners of Napa & Co., were our gracious hosts and Arik Bensimon, their head chef, prepared some incredible dishes for us.  Just to make you hungry, here's the menu:


I'll send you over to CTbites' recap for pictures of the food because I just couldn't do it justice with my dinky camera.

I want to extend my thanks to Mary and Charles for inviting me to this amazing meal, and also to all the other attendees who made it even more memorable!
