Oregon Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 9 of 25: The last course of the five-course wine pairing dinner was described as a “Black Forest chocolate parfait soaked in brandy.” I don’t think I would describe it exactly like that, for a few reasons. First, the cake part was not Black Forest cake, but merely a dense chocolate cake or light brownie. I don’t know why they used the word ‘parfait’ because I don’t see anything about this dessert that resembles a parfait. Finally, there may have been a bit of brandy in the cake, but it was definitely not soaked.
As you can see from the photo, a mint leaf was added for the presentation. It was pretty good even though it didn’t live up to its fancy description, but there wasn’t much the little square bowl. See the next photo for the wine that went with this course.
This special pairing dinner was cosponsored by Arrowhead Golf Club in Liberal on Oregon Route 213, whose Legend’s Bar and Grill provided the dining room and the food. It was also cosponsored by the Pheasant Run Winery Tasting Room in Aurora, which supplied their wine. April 22, 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
