Coffee Encrusted Beef Fillet

Coffee Encrusted Beef Fillet, Fried Eggplant, Grilled French Bread and Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Seghesio Zinfandel. The Seghesio, at $19, is a great bottle of wine and pairs well with many different foods. It's dark fruit like blackberry and black cherry on the nose, a hint of chocolate on the mid palate and a nice finish. If you remember the smell of your mother's or grandmother's kitchen when she was making grape jelly, then you can imagine what this wine smells like. As for this pan seared fillet, this old skillet holds lot of memories of my mother cooking in our old farm house in rural West TN. It's still producing great food to this day. Cheers to all...
