multi-course pairing help needed!

Hi all,

We're doing a multi-course dinner party for 6 based on Heston Blumenthal's 'Home' book, with some courses from elsewhere. We really could use help with wine pairing and the ordering of dishes!

Here is the menu:

- gin and tonic granita

- Lamb Jelly with Cucumber Salad (amuse)

- Szechuan broth with duck dumplings

- Mushroom Jelly with Mushroom Cream

- Garden Salad with Sauce Gribiche (this has 'edible soil' with black olives - hard to match? Also thinking this could go before the mushroom jelly)

- Licquorice poached salmon

- Pigeon breast with port wine sour cherry reduction on celeriac puree

- Mint granita with apple juice

- dessert 1 - not sure - could be basil pannacotta with something else on the side.

- Palet d'or with chocolate, passion fruit ice cream and a surprising fun gelee (don't know what the surprise is - my friend is doing this one!)

- petit fours

Really hope you can help!

With many thanks,
