Vegetarian Dilemma – What to Serve With 1979 Château Palmer

venus_de_mpls | Nov 16, 2004 10:08 AM

My boyfriend has a few remaining wines from his once grand collection and he wants to share this bottle with me, a vegetarian. I’d like to prepare something appropriate. Is it even possible?

I was thinking that for him to fully enjoy this, we should consider bringing the wine to a restaurant and risking the corkage fee. That way he could enjoy lamb or beef. I did offer my kitchen so he could prepare his own, but he doesn’t want to sully my kitchen, though I have reassured him it would be no trouble.

So, I am stuck trying to figure out a meal worthy of this wine. Now what? One more fly in the ointment – he despises mushrooms.

My thanks in advance, dear Chowhounds.
