Starter: Baby Arugula Salad

Fresh greens like arugula are in abundance in early summer. In this salad, the peppery greens are paired with sweet corn and salty, nutty Parmigiano for a light yet delightful salad that can be prepared in advance and tossed together just before serving.

 

Wine Pairing: Wente Vineyards 2009 Riva Ranch Chardonnay, Arroyo Seco, Monterey, Calif.

This medium-bodied, Chardonnay is delightfully easy to drink, with a light aroma of white florals and tropical fruits and flavors of honey, peaches, apricot. This is balanced by subtle buttery, vanilla notes from being aged in oak, resulting in a balanced wine with a tropical fruit finish. 

 

Dishware: Culinaria plate in Pound Cake; Capello flatware; Profile white wine glass
