Updates Later.

I’m thinking a 2005 Arcadian Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow may meet its doom tonight with this dish.

I like what’s going down here Dennis. Keep us posted.

Good God. That broth. [notworthy.gif]

I’m thinking that would be a fantastic match. Unless you also have a Windy Oaks Chard… :slight_smile:

My WO Chards are not here yet.
May go with a Hansel and let the Arc sit, it could stand it.
The stock reduced, cream was added.

It is now a creamy lobster broth that tastes like it came from heaven itself.
More later [cheers.gif]

Brewer-Clifton Sweeney Canyon Chard always seems to pair well with lobster dishes.

This looks stupendous. [good.gif]
Let me know the outcome.
Wished you had one of those 1999 Sleepys for this. They are right in that wheelhouse.
(Actually I wished I still had some 1999 Sleepy Chards)

Thanks, Don. I wish I loaded up back when there was time for doing such
A '99 would be killer tonight.
Hope you are well.

Didn’t get the greatest shot of the Mac and Cheese, but it was heavenly.

The orzo simmered in the lobster broth with some chives and mascarpone… [swoon.gif]
It was really rich and delicious. The 2006 Bjornstadt Chardonnay Ritchie Vyd is a nice little Chard. Crisp and clean; not a lot of oak. It was a good match, not earth-shaking, but good.
Cheers all.

Looks VERY tasty!

That looked delicious!

Thanks guys. This was pretty amazing.

I’m gonna have to give this a shot this Summer…looks amazing!
