Pairing Recommendations for non-traditional Canadian Thanksgiving dinner

anewton | Oct 12, 2008 03:07 PM

It is Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend. My wife and I are hosting a dinner party tonight and would appreciate any pairing recommendations.

The menu is:

1st Course: Cheeses, picholine olives, bread. (I realize this is in reverse order, but....this will allow our guests to graze while we complete dinner). The cheeses we are serving are: Bleu de Basque; Saint Nectaire (soft); and Pepato Siciliano (a hard sheep milk's cheese).

2nd Course (Entree and side dishes served together):

Duck legs in green olive sauce with cracklings and papperdelle

Carrots braised in maple syrup and balsamic vinegar

Collard greens fried in garlic and olive oil

Dessert Course: Homemade apple pie served with vanilla bean ice cream.

I realize this is last minute, but any last-minute suggestions would be appreciated.
