The 5th Annual Boulder Burgundy Festival officially happens October 22-25, 2015 in Boulder, Colorado. But Brett Zimmerman, festival founder and Master Sommelier, welcomes two Burgundy heavyweights at a bucket-list level Burgundy wine dinner at Mercantile Dining and Provision (Union Square), Denver on Tuesday October 6th. This dinner is clearly the Denver first-taste of The Boulder Burgundy Festival.
Chef/Owner Alex Seidel has created a mouth-watering 5-course menu suitable for heads of state!
I am pinching myself with disbelief that I am one of the lucky 16 that will be enjoying this feast! Check out the menu below, which is being published for the first time on this blog. Check back next week for a review and photos of the dinner.

--> The Food And Wine Chain Turtle Soup…The Almost Forgotten Delicacy! By Christopher J. Davies Over a century ago, Turtle Soup was earmarked in many a home cook’s favorite cookbook. It is said this was U.S. President Howard Taft’s favorite food. So seriously did he take this dish that he even selected a special chef for the White House who was a master at cooking a good Turtle Soup. Today a small group of restaurants across the country have Turtle Soup on their regular menus. The largest concentration of restaurants with Turtle Soup on their menus is found in America’s foodiest city, New Orleans! Of the dozen or so restaurants in NOLA making Turtle Soup, Commander’s Place is ground zero for this delicacy. Their creole version is thick and stew-like. It is usually topped off at your table with a drop of sherry. No, it does not taste like chicken, but more like a veal stew.

Story and photo by Christopher J. Davies If you have not yet visited the Abruzzo region of central Italy, it is worth a stop. Just about 2 1/2 hours east of Rome is the culmination of Italy’s Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. There are amazing national parks and preserves plus ski resorts. Pescara is the largest city, located on the Adriatic Sea. They have an International Airport and many stores and amenities. The region is known for its Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, medium bodied, plummy red wine (no relation to Montepulciano in Tuscany). It is also famous for Arrosticini, skewers of tender cubed lamb, that are barbequed to perfection. You can find Arrosticini as appetizers on many restaurant menus and premade for sale at butchers and grocery stores. While it is mainly made with lamb or mutton, some restaurants and butchers offer beef and pork versions. A good portion of the men in Abruzzo own a fornacella, which is an elongated, charcoal-fired, or gas
