#SoupWeek with Chef Robin White
What an experience this week has been with Chef Robin White and the twitter gang. I watched the excitement unfold. People getting ready each evening for a bowl of soup. Yes...I said soup. It was not only the great recipes that Robin put together for wonderful soups each night but also the warm camaraderie of friends coming together to have fun and share good times together with great food and great wine. Isn't that what it's all about...? Chef Robin brought over a 100,000 people together each night. That is amazingly awesome when you think about it.
Saturday was a great evening for the partnership with Robin to sponsor soup night #8. You can find the recipe for Chef Robin's Roasted Buttenernut Squash/Grilled Corn on her website along with all the other great soup recipes that were made this week. http://www.chefrobinwhite.com/
I am humbled that Robin would choose me to make her recipe and choose my wines to be paired with such an awesome dish...just like her blog said "a dish that soothes the soul." It did just that...it brought a few of my friends togther. We shared, laughed and had an evening of fun. The time together, the absolutley wonderful soup and the perfect pairing with Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay soothed our souls and prepared us for the next day. It left us full and satisifed, yet wanting more....
Looking forward to what Chef Robin will be doing next...
