New Year's Eve Murder Mystery Menu

Murder Mystery Party - A Taste for Wine and Murder
This year my wife and I are hosting a murder mystery dinner at our house to ring in the new year.  The plot takes place in California's Wine Country (@ Ravenswood or Barefoot perhaps?!) so we're going with an Italian theme.
"It's a tour of California Wine Country with its peaceful vineyards and picturesque wineries. The annual wine-tasting festival is in full swing when the body of local vineyard owner, Barry Underwood, is found hidden beneath his wine-cellar. Barry has been missing for six long years but with the discovery of his body comes a wealth of new clues to solve the mystery. It's a vintage murder and you may be a suspect."

Here is what we'll be serving up with the help of our guests (potluck style of course):




  • Yellow Cake Chess Squares (SDG)
  • Marshmellow Cookie Bars
  • Fresh Fruit

And of course plenty of good wine to drink :)  Cheers to Happy New Year from the Someday Gourmet!

Note:  This game does include a sample menu but it simply wasn't what we were looking for...

  1. This sounds like a ton of fun. You're lucky you have friends willing to play along! I've recently received one of these boxed mysteries for Christmas and I have no one to play it with...know anyone in Oklahoma? Haha.
