Wine and Sushi

Spring Roll with a Spicy Seafood Ro
Here is a pretty way to enjoy a romantic evening together. Pair some wine with sushi and serve them on these unique and pretty handmade glass sushi dishes.

We bought some tempura to go. We used a dark purple sushi set to serve the sushi with a dry Riesling.



Here we used my sushi set to serve spring roll and spicy seafood roll. We paired it with a Pinot Gris from Inniskillin.

Ever hear of the Top of Layer Cake Tradition?

It is when you save the top of the layer of your wedding cake and eat it on your one year anniversary. I have made this several times for weddings and other special occasions.
