This past Saturday, we welcomed local artisans selling their goods just in time for the Holiday season. We enjoyed a great turn out and offered light food and wine pairings for guests to enjoy while they shopped. Special thanks to Vince & Lore DiSalvo for their offering of the marscapone-berry treats which were as delicious as they were beautiful! One favorite of the crowd was the three cheese artichoke dip and, as promised, here is the recipe:
8 oz. block of cream cheese softened
1 block of Yancey's Fancy Bergenost Cheese shredded
1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
1 jar of marinated artichokes, drained and coarsely chopped
3/4 cup of sour cream
3/4 cup of mayonnaise
4 scallions chopped
salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes to taste
Combine ingredients into a crock pot and put on high until warmed through and cheese has melted. Serve with crostini or tortilla chips along with Deer Run Riesling!
Last night, we welcomed a great crowd of folks and enjoyed the food, wine and the company above all! The star appetizer of last night's event was the smoked gouda dip pairing served with Deer Run's Traminette; this could be a great addition to your next get together this Holiday season. Below are the recipes and wine pairings. All of the recipes were found online and I have provided links to the sites below:
Thank you to all who came out, I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoy hosting these events! We hope to see you again soon; Happy Holidays!! Wish to join us for one of our upcoming Candlelight Night events? Click here to make your reservations!
