(For Social Hour in the Tasting Room) with Hors d'oeuvres
Chef's Choice Hors d'oeuvres
Dragon's Blood (Red wine)
Owl's Blood (White wine)
(each course served with paired Clauren Ridge wine)
Hogwarts’ Savory Bread Pudding with Mushrooms & Parmesan
A favorite among students at Hogwarts, reserved for special occasions. This savory version of bread pudding makes use of the several varieties of mushrooms found by Rubeus Hagrid around the school grounds.
Hogsmeade Traditional Pumpkin Stew
According to tradition, Hogsmeade was founded over a thousand years ago, around the same time as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, by medieval wizard Hengist of Woodcroft as he was fleeing persecution by Muggles. Its bountiful pumpkin patches provided a great staple for the fleeing witches and wizards. We are told it is still traditionally eaten on All Hallows’ Eve.
Roasted Strip Loin Or Chicken Pepita Pistou, Creamy Pumpkin Polenta, Stuffed Roma and Warm Bread
This meal is normally reserved for special holiday meals at Hogwarts, a favorite among professors & muggles alike. All products have been locally sourced from the school grounds and the nearby town of Hogsmeade.
Layers of pumpkin custard spiked with bourbon and fresh whipped cream are sure to please all witches & wizards.
*** Come as your Favorite Harry Potter Character! ***
(or just wear "something" Hogwarts style)
