New Zealand Wine Dinners at Waiheke Island Yacht Club
America’s Cup has come and gone, but the New Zealand-themed pop-up restaurant it spawned is sticking around until the end of the year.
It’s not easy to please both Aunt Edith and your sister’s hipster boyfriend; to find a match for tart cranberry sauce, creamy green bean almondine (thanks, Edi) and freshly-foraged mushroom stuffing smothered in Turkey gravy. Such a challenge is nothing to be thankful for. But here are five wines that will get the whole happy family through the neverending Thanksgiving feast.
Satisfy all your Thanksgiving feast needs this week at the special Wednesday edition of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market!
While shopping for the turkey and trimmings you will likely ponder what wines to pair with the feast. But rather than scan through the Savignon Blancs and Rieslings again this year, wheel your cart to the craft beer aisle for a change.
Thanksgiving is a beast of a holiday. From the bird to the butter-soaked sides, it requires a ton of planning, even when hosting a small crowd. If you dislike cooking or need a few supplemental dishes, check out the menus from several local catering companies.
A long time ago, when I was growing up in a small town in Michigan, part of the background every Thanksgiving day at my aunt’s house on Oxbow Lake was the Detroit Lions football game on TV.
The Lions still carry on that tradition, as do a few other NFL teams, and thanks to a brand new little startup started by three guys out of their apartment in San Francisco, this Thanksgiving football fans have a new way to enjoy these classic games with others.
