Hey love birds, it’s that time to make your Valentine’s Day plans again. But we’re all tired of doing the same old things, aren’t we? How can we make this year especially romantic and memorable? Why not try the Dessert First Menu at Aroma Thyme Bistro in Ellenville, and really set the mood?
Let us  get your palate jump started with a bite of dessert first

Choice of one 

Artichoke & Bean Soup 


Arugula & Pomegranate Salad
 Goat Milks Feta Cheese 

~~~~~~
Choice of one 

 Coffee & Cacao Grilled Pork Steak
Black Beans & Rice 



 Bourbon Honey Glazed Chicken
Cornbread



Jerk Seared Catfish Filet
Plantain Tostones


Four Mushroom Penne Pasta & Peas  
Organic Dellalo Whole Wheat Pasta

~~~~~~  




Why we chose some of the foods:
Chocolate is sensual, from its taste to its aroma, but dark chocolate has also been shown to cause a spike in dopamine, which induces feelings of pleasure.

Bananas/Plantains 
With its phallic shape, bananas already look like a feel-good food; but they also contain bromelain, an enzyme which Dr. Oz says triggers testosterone production, and the fruit's potassium and vitamin B elevate energy levels.

Honey
Honey is made through pollination and is a symbol of procreation. Birds and bees ring a bell? In fact, the word 'honeymoon' got its name from mead, an alcoholic beverage made from honey given to the happy new bride and groom. It also contains boron, which helps regulate estrogen and testosterone levels and provides a natural energy boost.

Coffee
The caffeine in coffee is a stimulant that ups the heart rate and makes the blood flow. One study conducted with female rats and published in the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Behavior suggested that coffee could put women in the mood for sex.

Arugula
According to gourmetsleuth.com, this peppery plant has been documented as an aphrodisiac since the first century A.D. The minerals and antioxidants found in dark leafy greens like arugula have also been proven to block environmental contaminates that could negatively harm libido, says Dr. Walt Larimore MD, a medical journalist, author and physician. 

Artichokes 
This veggie's aphrodisiac reputation comes mostly from legend and the intimacy of eating it with another, pulling off the leaves to reach the center. But it is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which are critical to proper body function and blood flow.

Pomegranate
These bright gems enclosed in a thick rose husk are filled with antioxidants which support blood flow. One study by The Male Clinic in California found that pomegranate juice had a positive effect on erectile dysfunction.

About Graziano:
The Graziano Family has a long line of winemakers and grape growers dating back to the early 1900’s.
Gregory Graziano's grandfather, Vincenzo Graziano, and his wife Angela, immigrated to America and to eventuall find their way to Mendocino County where they started growing grapes and making wine. They first planted vineyards in Mendocino County in 1918. In the late 1920's Vincenzo had to depend on selling grapes to home winemakers on the east coast and bootlegging wine to support his family.
In the 1940's after Prohibition and the Depression, Vincenzo, along with other local grape growers, formed the Mendocino Vineyards Winery, which eventually was sold and merged into the historically significant Cresta Blanca Winery in the town of Ukiah.
Greg’s father, Joseph Graziano, later followed in his father’s footsteps and worked in the family vineyard operation.
Like his family before him Gregory Graziano, Vincenzo's grandson, now carries on the family winemaking tradition that his grandfather set the foundation for and that his father Joseph later handed down to Gregory. To this day he is still carrying on the family tradition...

Welcome to Graziano Family of Wines. Our wines are handcrafted with history, heritage and care in Mendocino County. They are consistently full-bodied, uniquely flavored and finely balanced. Specializing in classic Italian and unique old world varietals, our wines are being recognized at pinnacles in America winemaking. Discover our passion in every bottle.
