Drum roll please.  Last night to benefit Pickering Creek Audubon Center in Easton, Maryland,   husband and wife chefs donated a six course meal paired with wines from their own cellar. The third course was fresh figs stuffed with Gorgonzola in a bed of baby spinach with a sherry vinaigrette. The dinner was served on the screen porch of Pickering's main building, a house overlooking Pickering Creek. Mirval Rose, from Provence, a vineyard owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie produces dry and crisp pale pink wine and it was paired with the plump figs,  a word which could also describe the sweet Choptank oysters served with the second course. Tonight we ate figs stuffed with Gorgonzola in honor of our Audubon friends.
