Bourbon Candied Walnuts

Main Courses

Careful, these candied walnuts are a bit addicting! They are great in a salad or on a cheese and charcuterie board, or even by themselves.

Sonoma-Julep

Main Courses

May is well known for the Kentucky Derby, and the Kentucky Derby calls for at least one mint julep. Here in wine country, we replace the bourbon in the mint julep with Chardonnay. This cocktail is just as refreshing as it is unique and perfect for sipping on a warm, sunny day.

Saffron Paella with Chicken, Andouille Sausage & Shrimp

Recipes

As a chef, the most commonly asked question is, “What is your favorite dish to cook?” Sometimes I reply coyly with, “Whatever I am cooking right now.” But the truth is I have three favorites. First, I love making stock – chicken stock, veal stock, corn stock, etc. A good stock is one of the best ways to incorporate flavor to a dish.

The other two are risotto and paella. Both are rice dishes, but they’re so fundamentally different. Risotto is all about the cream and cheese, whereas with paella, in my opinion, the rice is made to shine more.

For this recipe use a good dry white wine, like Sonoma Cutrer’s Sonoma Coast Chardonnay to infuse the saffron, and of course a good home-made chicken stock. Depending on how much paprika and red chili flakes you add, you can manage the spice levels. I like to keep my heat lower because I want to taste the saffron and rice. One of the coolest parts about paella is cooking it in a paella pan. While it’s not necessary, you can always use a sauté pan, the flat bottom of the paella pan allows for even distribution of heat so that the rice cooks evenly. Plus, it happens to sit perfectly on top of a campfire.

Pair this with our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and you will surely leave the dinner table full and happy.

Red Bell Pepper Coulis

Recipes

Coulis is a type of spread or jelly that is made from fruit or vegetable puree. In this case, from red bell peppers. This coulis is sweet and tangy with just the slightest hint of heat. It is great on its own on a cheese board, but I love it as a condiment on a sandwich. Pair with a creamy cheese like soft goat or brie and a bottle of Russian River Ranches Chardonnay.

Coffee Spice Rub

Main Courses

This coffee spice rub is great on red meat. I use it mainly on a tri-tip, but it goes great on all beef. Surprisingly enough though, this rub goes incredibly well with salmon. I challenge you to try this out this summer, not just on the meat of your choice but also on salmon to really taste how versatile this rub is.
