Our cheeses for the evening
The beautiful cake
Close up! Fruit Mmmm....

Our resident patissier Eve hails from Long Island and so it comes as no surprise that the theme for her wnc is Long Island Wines. She thoughtfully got a card and champagne for Tiffany and A in celebration of their engagement and we all couldn't be happier for the lovely couple :) Fyi, all of the cheeses came from Central Bottle. Eve prepared yellow cake and didn't have high hopes because yellow cake reminded her of box cake but I (and everyone else) loved it! Of firm crumb, the very buttery cake was cleverly moistened with limoncello, which complemented the luscious  layers of berries and cream, delicious! Many of us posed with the beautiful, gleaming cake in mention; in fact Eve and I had the pictures as our facebook profile :) My favorites of the evening, in highlight below.

According to Long Island Wine County:

1) Macari Vineyards (
2009 Sauvignon Blanc
Paired with: Roves de Garriques (Goat’s milk – Provence, France)-lemony and floral, so refreshing. It doesn't have the heavy tang that goat's cheeses have usually.
2) Lieb Family Cellars (
Reserve Chardonnay 2006
3) Lenz Winery ( like because I tend to prefer sauvignon blancs.
2007 White Label Chardonnay
Paired with: Champlain Triple Crème (Cow’s milk – Vergennes, Vermont)
Paired with: Twig Farm Square (Goat’s milk – West Cornwall, Vermont)
4) Palmer Vineyards ( smooth finish.
2007 Cabernet Franc Paired with:  Hudson Red Twin Maple Farm (Cow’s milk - Ghent, New York)- I love the nutty aroma and soft-medium texture!
Paired with:  Vegetable Lasagna. Served warm. Someone mentioned that this was their favorite cheese and I laughed like crazy.
5) Castello di Borghese Vineyard and Winery (
Pinot Noir 2006 Estate
Paired with: Pecorino Ginepro (Sheep’s milk – Emiglia-Romagna, Italy)
6) Duckwalk Vineyards ( 2007 Blueberry Port-Concentrated berry bouquet! Had it before at Eve's birthday party earlier this year and I was glad I was able to siphon a sip. I had to bargain my way for another refill from Ritesh. :)
