The very first date Husband and I went on was to a wine tasting in Charlottesville, VA. Ever since then, we have become wannabe oenophiles (read: total wine geeks). We have visited most of the wineries in the Shenandoah Valley and several wineries in Maryland. When we got engaged, we celebrated by visiting our favorite Virginia wineries before even telling our families. We then celebrated again by enjoying a tasting dinner at Equinox in DC. We picked out the wines for our wedding and even our Honeymoon included a wine tasting in Provence.
So, of course, we were so excited when one Christmas we received the gift of a subscription to Food and Wine magazine from my brother and his wife. It’s unfortunate that life often got in the way of enjoying many of the delicious recipes in those magazines. In fact, I still have many of those back issues still in our office tabbed and waiting for the kitchen.
So, when looking for a good wine to pair with Thanksgiving dinner this year, I was so excited when I came across this page at the Food and Wine website. Want delicious recipes? Got it. Want beautiful recipes? Got it. Want tips on how to plan creating your menu? Got it. Does your gravy always turn out lumpy? Find out why. Need make ahead recipes? Done. Want a themed meal? You can find it. Did you procrastinate and you need to put together Thanksgiving dinner fast? Done.
Seriously, go now to the Food & Wine Ultimate Thanksgiving Guide and take a look at all the all the meal planning goodness!
