#ThisWineThatDish | Monte Creek Sparkling Rosé | Croque-Monsieur Breakfast Casserole

This is a dish I served family during the holidays. It is not only very tasty and satisfying it is also simple to make. You can make it ahead the day before, set your oven on auto start and laze in bed until you get hungry! A win, win!

#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 – Township 7 2017 Polaris seven stars | Vacherin Mont d’Or

This was a wine from my cellar. Picked specifically to pair with this very strong and stinky cheese on a specail holiday occasion. Not for the feint of heart the Vacherin Mont d’Or.

#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 | 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.
