The best scallops I have ever eaten.

I had never eaten scallops growing up.  It wasn’t until about a year or so ago that I was willing to try one.  Watching Hell’s Kitchen has made me want to be a scallop eater.  However the few times I tried scallops it wasn’t really worth the hype.  I didn’t enjoy the texture or flavor of the scallop.  It wasn’t until last year when my work had a wine maker dinner that I went to where I had the BEST scallops.  I seriously could have eaten plate’s worth of these bad boys. 

I feel that it is also worth noting that I am not a beer or wine drinker either.   I can barely drink Moscato let alone imagine drinking and enjoying a glass of red wine.  Going into this event I was open to trying the pairings of wine and food.  I enjoyed every bite and sip.  Maybe too much! The pours of wine were VERY generous and I was feeling it!  Needless to say that Basel Cellars http://baselcellars.com/ impressed me with the taste of their wine.  This evening taught that there are wines that I can enjoy, apparently I have expensive tastes! Ned Morris really knows his wine!  It was a really nice hear about how they create their blends and learning about how wine is made.  It was an evening I will remember for a long time. 

Back to the scallops…MMMMM.  The corn was the perfect complement to the scallops.  I will be trying to recreate this dish….it was heavenly.

Here is the rest of the food we ate!

I forgot to take picture of the first course. :\

This is the duck with arugula! (I easily drank 7 glasses of wine and they were fuller than the picture above)

Chocolate mouse with candied rosmary!

Hopefully I can get in on this years wine maker dinners!
