Today I’m going to leave off writing and simply post a few pics from the Temptations Everyday Gourmet “Forgotten Grapes” Wine Dinner held on March 4, 2011.  (For more information on “Forgotten Grapes,” and the list of wines paired with each of the five courses below, check out the post I wrote here.)
