Setting the Table: Falling for Merlot

September 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’m absolutely loving all things burgundy this season. My nails are even getting in the spirit by getting a weekly coat of this polish. I’ve discovered it’s a great transition color, as it hints at fall, while retaining the bold colorful spirit of summer. It makes perfect sense then, that I’d be inclined to dream up a little table setting in the same color palette. Plus, it makes the usually season-less wine and cheese party a little more festive.

Merlot is as easy to incorporate into the menu as it is the setting. This Raspberry Merlot Sorbet is perfect for those unexpectedly warm days. Rosemary finds it’s way into these Parmesan Rosemary Crackers, while brie is the perfect hearty cheese for fall, and hints at the comfort foods to come in the cold days ahead.
