Grape news, Wine Lovers! Our friends at Cameron Hughes have come up with three stellar wine samplers to pair with our cozy new winter menu. To every home chef who has cried “If only you delivered wine!”… we’re with you. Your time has come!

CH’s wine samplers include assortments of red, white, and mixed… plus Home Chef specific pairing ideas. Here are some of our favorite CH/HC duos!

Medium-bodied red blends pair well with richly sauced dishes such as steak (or even fish) in red wine sauce or with casseroles, where a more powerfully tannic wine would be overwhelming.”

Pair our Korean BBQ steak with CH 2014 Santa Ynez Valley Syrah/Grenache

“Try Pinot or red blends with pizza and other toasted cheese dishes such as panini and quesadillas or pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, especially with pancetta/bacon or mushrooms.”

Pair our Bacon Flatbread Pizza with 2015 Oregon Pinor Noir

“Pair Cabernet Sauvignon with red meat. Some fattiness in steak helps younger cabernets appear more mellow. Dishes like braised belly of pork or shoulder of lamb can pair well with a tannic Cab better than a leaner cut like filet. Cab is also great paired with a cheese course, particularly if it includes hard, aged cheeses.”

Pair our Blue Cheese and Green Onion-Crusted Steak with 2013 Paicines Cabernet Sauvignon

“Pair Chardonnay and most white wines with: Simple fish preparations (salmon poached or with a buttery sauce, for example), pork or pasta in a creamy sauce (really anything with a creamy sauce), chicken, ham or cheese-based salads (such as Caesar Salad), or chicken salads.”

Cheers to you!

    I placed and order and then realized I cannot afford it. So I went to cancel it and they said they would send no further orders. I have not received and order yet. I am suppose to get and order on the 9th. They said they do not take the money out of your account until the Friday before the delivery. They did take the money out. Every time I try to get into my account they say it is the wrong password or email. So I tried talking to them through email and they kept saying someone would get to me shortly. Well I has been over 24 hours. I have been scammed by this company……it is all a scam….so sorry because I could have brought them so much business………
