Jasper’s Winemaker Dinner Featuring William Whiting & The Wines of Banfi Vinyards

jaspers_cheers From HenHouse.comMan, I am so stuffed.  I just got back from dinner at Jasper’s.  Eggplant Othello, table side mozzarella, chicken saltimbocco, strudel for dessert (yeah, I know, I should have had cannoli, but I wanted to eat a German dessert at an Italian place.  So what?  Big whoop!  Wanna fight about it?  Good, because I’m too full.)

Oh, and we got a sneak peak (dear FTC that means we got it for free, the eggplant, too) at chef’s pear/bechamel rigatoni.  It was so good.  It’s my wife’s new favorite.  Though, I thought it might need some crispy pancetta.  But who am I?

Anyway, I was pretty sure that I wasn’t going to eat for a month.  Then I was reminded that Chef Jasper is having a winemaker dinner featuring wines from Banfi Vineyards which I have been invited to attend.  I’m excited, but I’m full.

And seriously, if I was a bear, I’d just go hibernate now, but I’m not a bear.  I’m a dude who eats.

So, I plan to not eat for a week and then check out this wine dinner.  From Jasper’s site, we’ll all be feasting on:
