Best Dinner Parties for Six

My best dinner parties have been with six people.  There is just enough personalities to bounce off each other, but not so many people you don’t get to really visit with everyone. Just after the holidays we got together with some friends at their house and had a winter celebration.  On the menu:

  • Assorted light appetizers
  • Roasted pear and arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette
  • Beef bourguignon
  • Corn pudding
  • Roasted vegetables with fennel pollen
  • Three cheeses
  • Chocolates for dessert

Thanks to the generosity of our friend, the wine!

One of my favorite dead of the winter meals
An aged cheddar, my favorite goat cheese and a Mahon from Spain
Guess which cheese was the favorite:  Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove
Port and chocolates:  I am one happy girl!
