Below is my menu for a dinner I'm preparing for a wine judge this weekend...I have the wine for the main course, but would LOVE suggestions for the opening courses and the dessert courses!
Chilled sweet pea soup with minted ice and garlic blossoms
Sesame crusted oyster mushrooms with homemade goat cheese rounds encased in freshly picked herbs on a bed of arugula with chive blossom wasabi cream
Roasted herbes de Provence rack of lamb with zinfandel nicoise olive sauce, roasted garlic and ratatouille polenta, and Queen Sevillano olive-rosemary tapenade
Rose petal ice cream and prickly pear glazed fresh raspberries in a bittersweet Valrhona chocolate shell with raspberry coulis and hand crafted marzipan
Duo of ginger-mascarpone mousse and bittersweet Guaranda chocolate mousse with green tea creme Anglaise and crystallized ginger
