Bedford's Best Wine and Cheese Experience

Advice from Queen Bee: Hide Your Pets

I gave up Bacon for Lent. Torture. I’ll be eyeing small animals in about two weeks, and think that there is probably enough barbecue sauce in the world to cover the taste of raccoon.

With weather warming up a bit, we are taking advantage of nice fruits and vegetables and also throwing some spicier foods your way. Since I gave up bacon (yes, I know I already mentioned that, but am craving sympathy) I need something with a kick to it to satisfy my pork cravings! We have a Spicy Crawfish Dip with a little cayenne bite and a new Hot Cheese plate served with Marinara & Ranch. If you haven’t ever tried Halloumi cheese, give it a shot – we’re crazy about it. Some new salads and dressings – Spinach-Strawberry with Strawberry Vinaigrette, Greek Salad with Kalamata Olives, Feta Cheese, and Tomatoes topped with Green Goddess dressing. We have some new soups, too: Clam Chowder, Spicy Tomato Bisque, and Butternut Squash Soup. And new pasta: Ravioli stuffed with Italian Sausage & Parmesan and served with Marinara. For dessert, we have Chocolate Mousse with Chantilly Cream, Bananas Foster with Ice Cream, and Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing.

Look for details in upcoming weeks: Karaoke Night on St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17th from 7 p.m. to midnight…and our next Cheese Class in early April.

Valentine’s Day … and Cheese Class Coming Soon!

Many of you have already called us and made reservations – but we have a wonderful 5-Course Dinner slated for Valentine’s Day (or Singles Awareness Day, according to Zach) for $45. Call us! 817-281-9500.

Also, sign up now for Understanding Cheese I – A Cheese Primer. Saturday, February 25th, starting at 1:00 p.m., taught by Tracy & James McKinney; $30 per person. Cheese, goodies, vino, beer – the basic food groups (although they are not inclined to include bacon…so they’re not entirely perfect – ;).

And coming up soon (we have to finalize the dates, but it’s definitely on our radar): Karaoke Late Night (I will not be singing…lucky you), new Martini Infusions, Fat Tuesday Food, and (wait for it) St. Patrick’s Day Specials.

We need help! We’re hiring floor & kitchen help – so if you have interest or know of someone with possible interest in working here (experience needed!!!), get with us!
