Benoit emailed me after seeing the movie, Julie and Julia. Not only did he rave about the movie, he commented… “I made her Boeuf Bourguignon recipe tonight, was really good!”
While Benoit and Joy starting cooking at home from Julia Child’s cookbook, I went to see the movie twice and was inspired to buy “pearls”.
The next call from Benoit was a suggestion to do a wine dinner at the winery, appropriately titled “Joy and Julia”.
What could be more perfect than a dinner in the middle of the cellar during harvest? The aromas of Joy’s wonderful food and Benoit’s wine… add in the spice of new oak and if we’re lucky the “music” of chardonnay fermenting in barrels… well I could only describe this as intoxicating!
Hope you can join us. Kathy
