Latino Foodie create a tasting menu sparked by Nestle!

As a rule of thumb, I surround myself with nice people. I like it better when these nice people become friends and love to eat and cook, just like me.  Sunday night my man and I headed out to an evening of eating a tasting menu inspired by Nestle hosted by Latino Foodie blog. Pamela of LatinaWineBlogger provided pairing wines…. Oh what a wonderful evening we had…..
