Songs for Dinner on a Stormy Night

The weather was stormy last night and I thought a little jazz would be nice for dinner. I had prepared a hearty dish from southwest France that consisted of carmelized morsels of pork shoulder, a deep reduction of wine, Dijon mustard, and red wine vinegar; this was braised ever so slowly in stock, to which I added carrots, glazed and carmelized whole tiny onions, rosemary, thyme, and prunes. The dish was served over the richest mash potatoes ever; the potatoes were made with massive amounts of butter, whipping cream, no wimpy milk for me, sea salt, and a touch of freshly grated nutmeg. To wash it all down I had a glorious 1997 Cote-Rotie from Michel Ogier. Click here to enjoy.
