Tamale Pie if You Please


Doesn't that look delicious? I can't remember exactly what it was called. After 10 courses and 10 exquisitely paired wines my memory fades a little. Just a little though. This tasty morsel is garlic custard on a delectable tamale crust. Sauteed tomatoes, onions, and bell pepper supply a crunchy, yet graceful topping. The roasted red pepper cream sauce just perfectly completed the dish. I could ask for nothing more, and this was only the 3rd course. I am filled with disappointment that I was a tad too impaired to take more pictures. Alas, this is the only course I can share with you.
I highly recommend Stephan Pyles 5 star restaurant. We opted for the 10 course tasting menu, which was on the expensive side. I have since looked over the regular menu and can say that it looks equally delectable. I would love to hear your take on dinner. Don't be a stranger!

Hi Cheeky - linked here from Smittenkitchen, just saying hello. I've never had anything like you've described (though it does sound very interesting - tamale pie?), but the thing that sounds best about what you wrote is 10 wines to go with 10 courses. I am so curious about how wines pair up well with foods - and not in that "red wine with tomatoes" and "white wine with fish" way, but in the way that wine can really enhance and alter flavors. Sounds like you had fun!
