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 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 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.”
