#ThisWineThatDish | La Stella LaStellina Rosato | Bouillabaisse

The tomato base is alive with great quantities of garlic, subtler herbs such as thyme, celery (substitute for fennel) and saffron. But it is the inclusiion of the aioli and rouille (if using) that take this dish over the top.

#ThisWineThatDish | Fort Berens Cabernet Franc | Lamb Merguez Meatballs

“The inspiration behind this dish would be my love for fusing different cuisines together in one dish.” Chef Sarah Maw

#ThisWineThatDish | Hester Creek Pinot Gris Viognier | Pan Seared Icelandic Cod

As a new convert to this delicately flavoured fish it is fast becoming one of my favourite dishes. Seared, baked or steamed this fish keeps it’s firm texture and retains its moistness. Delicious no matter how it’s prepared or served.

#ThisWineThatDish | Maverick Chardonnay | Spicy Butternut Squash Pasta

This dish was so rich and indescribably delicious and it’s simple enough for a weekday dinner. Anyone could make this pasta dish and it is suprisingly flavourful even though it uses no onions or garlic.

#ThisWineThatDish | Church and State Cabernet Sauvignon | Miso Butternut Squash Pasta

Now that fall has arrived the Butternut Squash is superb and readily available at farmer’s markets or the grocery store. This is a simple version that can easily be prepared for a weeknight dinner.

Water Street Cafe | Noble Ridge | Wine Dinner first in a series…

The evening started pleasantly with an atmosphere enhanced by sparkling lights and mellow instrumental sounds of a sitar. There was no doubt that Chef Alan really pulled out all the stops when it came to the dishes that were paired with the Nobel Ridge wines.

#ThisWineThatDish | Little Engine Pinot Noir | Thanksgiving Turkey

“A bountiful nose of bramble fruit with licorice and a touch of eucalyptus leads into a silky palate of cherry, sassafras and basil leaf. The pleasing structure of this wine leaves you with a refreshing and clean finish.” winery notes

#ThisWineThatDish | Moon Curser Border Vines | Unstuffed Anaheim Peppers

Osoyoos East Bench grown, Bordeaux inspired: a Cabernet Sauvignon focused blend with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carménère…no Merlot was harmed in the making of this wine.

#Taste| Naramata Inn Okanagan Apple Oat Crumble | CedarCreek Platinum Reserve Riesling Icewine

This dessert is ALL about apples – use in-season, local apples if you can – these have an acidity and starch that really make the compote sing, that you won’t get at other times of the year.

#ThisWineThatDish | Maverick Sauvignon Blanc | Roasted Zucchini

Definitely the star of this dinner was the Maverick Sauvignon Blanc that was the perfect match for the Roasted Zucchini with Garlicky Bread Crumbs and Mozzarella. Plus a repeat dish (a definite favourite) Italian Sausage Meatballs, this time with Marinara Sauce.
