I need to host 10 business associates in Napa. Too many overhyped, over priced choices. I'm looking for good food, and a fairly priced wine list in a place that 10 men wont feel like they are intruding on everyone else's honeymoon. Idea's?
Think of this as a lighter, fresher take on chicken Parmesan: We ditch the breading on the poultry and let juicy cherry tomatoes stand in for jarred pasta sauce. A little grated carrot adds just enough sweetness to round out the acidity.
For perfectly fried, mozzarella Arancini, dip a rice ball into flour and shake off any excess. Dip floured ball into egg, allowing any excess to drip off. Finish by coating completely in breadcrumbs. Repeat.
