oh, we were having a Moroccan wine tasting at Peacock Pavilions in Marrakech!
Talented Chantal whipped up some appetizers in the kitchen. Goat cheese & homemade onion chutney.
And then guacamole in shot glasses, served with Chantal's *famous* cheese straws. Yum.
And well, of course there was Moroccan wine. Umm, plenty of it -- 9 different wines were being tasted! We had covered up the essentials so no one would know what they were tasting! We love secrets around here.
There was gazing, and swirling, and sniffing, and finally tasting. There were even score cards to fill out so that you could remember all your favorites.
And later, all was revealed.... (oh so you loved the Moroccan wine, Eclipse? Me, too. )
Coming to Marrakech? Peacock Pavilions does Moroccan wine tastings for parties of 10 or more, followed by dinner in our Moroccan embroidered dining tent. Please write if you would like to inquire. (infoATpeacockpavilionsDOTcom) It's a memorable evening:-)
PS Check out darling sponsor, the Soulbird blog -- she has a super cool tribal modern flair, with plenty of Moroccan mixed in. (Yowza!)
