Birthday dinner at DeepWood

Wednesday, 2 July 2014
My parents treated me to a lovely 35th birthday dinner with last night. Dannen and James joined us and we went to DeepWood Restaurant on North High Street. We enjoyed a fantastic atmosphere, professional service, and delicious, inventive food. Mom even ordered flowers for me from Oberer's Flowers

We started by ordering charcuterie that is made in the DeepWood kitchen by Chef Brian. We tried lamb sausage, duck proscuitto, and bacon terrine. It was fantastic. Dad, Dannen, and I also tried raw Prince Edward oysters. Very tasty.

The chef sent out a starter of watermelon, pickled watermelon rind, balsamic reduction and kalamata olive stuffed with goat cheese!

For my entree, I tried the rabbit "porchetta." It was served with spring vegetables, pistachio, anise grissini, and carrot/fennel puree. 

We also ordered Two Messengers pinot noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon. I've never had this before and we loved it. I lived near the Willamette Valley and always try wine from the region when I can.

We had such a great time together. Many thanks to my family for the special night.
