Every few months, Casey and I host a wine tasting at our house. He’s in charge of the get-together (it’s his wine group afterall!) while I work on the food. Bertolli recently contacted me to see if I’d like to be apart of their Bertolli Gold Label Progressive Italian Dinner Party with a few other food bloggers. Over the next few weeks, you can follow along to see how we all hosted our own gatherings and then brought them together through a virtual Gold Label Dinner Party menu. I thought it might be a good way to show you what goes into creating an antipasti platter for one of our wine parties- from selecting the wines to pairing food items. As the first blogger course of the #BertolliGoldLabel Progressive Dinner Party, I came up with an original recipe (hope you love polenta & mushrooms!) using one of their Bertolli Gold Label sauces and will post that soon.
