Date Night Dishes: Wine And Dine
Give your dining room the feel of a swanky Italian restaurant by hosting a wine tasting event complete with a satisfying meal.
Next time you want to host date night dinner at your house, stop by your grocer's wine section. Most stores have a wine expert – ask for one if wine selection gives you anxiety. Skip the merlot or any wine you typically drink and go for unfamiliar varieties like Malbec, Torrontés, or Carmenere. The names might sound pricey, but you can find good options that won't break the bank. Remove the labels, add a number to each bottle, and provide a place where your guests can write notes about which one they like best or what flavors they notice in the wine. Leave out a few pieces of chocolate and let the tasting begin. Serve the favorite choice with dinner.
This eggplant parmesan can be prepped ahead of time so you can partake in the tasting with your guests. The recipe can be easily altered for any size group and would pair well with a Malbec, Amarone, or Chianti.
