Six-Course Christmas Dinner

Jessica's birthday wish was to bless her family with a six course vegetarian Christmas dinner accompanied by a bottle of wine paired to each dish.

#1 - three canap├ęs with pesto, white bean & sage, olive tapenade.
Sauvignon blanc, CA.
#2 - maple parsnip soup with yogurt and pine nuts (recipe from Regent College).
Semi-dry Riesling, CA.
#3 - butternut pumpkin flan with red wine shallot sauce and greens.
Pinot Noir, CA.
#4 - watercress & rocket salad with lemon vinaigrette.
Merlot, CA.
#5 - pumpkin roulade (30th birthday cake).
Muscat, VIC.
#6 - cream mints, ethical bean de-caf coffee.
Ice Wine, BC.
Enjoyed by everyone and considered by some the best Boyle Christmas dinner yet...
thank you and Happy Birthday Jessica! Happy Christmas to all...
