COME DINE WITH US!

WELCOME TO THE PRIVATE DINING EXPERIENCE.

Together we (Mikaela and Molly) create a local and seasonal four-course menu every two weeks, served in our home to the first 12 guests that reserve.

Pricing will vary week to week according to what is available and what inspires us, though typically a four course meal will cost between $30-40. We encourage guests to bring their own wine and beer. Suggestions for harmonious wine pairings will often be provided with the menu in advance, and can be purchased at Putnam Wine Shop on Broadway in Saratoga.

As this blog develops, we hope to provide readers with photos from our dinners, previous menus, websites that interest us, foodie news, books we're reading and other food related information.

Recommended Wine Pairings--can be purchased at Putnam Wine Shop, on Broadway in Saratoga:

Reds:

Quinta de Crasto,Duoro Region Blend. 2007. $18.46
  • Reassuring structural framework, filed in with spicy, ripe, engaging fruit with a whiff of warm minerals about it. -JR
White:

Labbé "Abymes" Vin de Savoire, Blend. 2007. $12.23
  • This is a wonderful quaffing wine in the heat of summer, with fresh, fruity notes - like Sancerre but at a more reasonable price point.
Quenard Chignin Blanc, Jacquére. $16.26
  • Made from 100% Jacquére, it is a bit like Sauvignon Blanc without the aggressive grassiness- it's more peachy in character with slight viscosity.
