This menu combines a little high end and a bit of street fun California cuisine. A Napa Pinot Noir will pair as well with the easy to assemble fig appetizer as the Baja tacos. Pinot Noir is the best red for fish! But I have also included a great margarita recipe for those that like a little tequila with their garlic guacamole.

California Style Fruit KabbobsWant to impress your guest at your next event? Let's go with this impressive Californian style starter that is easy to assemble when ready to cook. It does require some prep, but well worth the effort.
Spicy Baja Fish TacosJust about any protein can make a scrumptious filling for tacos. If you are in the mood for seafood, these fish tacos may hit the spot. Load your soft tortillas with spicy fish and top it with crunchy Baja slaw and avocado. It makes an excellent dish for the grill!
Garlic GuacamoleIn this classic guacamole, we combine garlic, onion, lemon, lime, jalapeños and chopped cilantro with the mashed avocado. Pair this recipe with crisp corn chips or use it as a topping on your favorite Mexican dishes.
Chocolate ParfaitThe only thing that could make a parfait better is to add a little chocolate! This easy recipe creates a velvety custard made with eggs, cocoa, melted white chocolate, and a kiss of coffee liqueur. Gently fold some whipped cream into the mix, and spoon it into parfait glasses. Top with some white chocolate bits, chopped nuts for crunch and a sprig of mint. Bon Appetite!
