Risotto With Asparagus, Roasted Garlic, and Lemon

Recipes

Risottos are wonderful “comfort foods”. The key is to make sure that when the risotto gets to that magic place where each grain of rice is soft and creamy, but still with a little texture in the very center. Serve it up immediately! If you wait more than a few minutes it gets too soft and gummy. This recipe is best when paired with our Russian River Ranches Chardonnay.

Roast Beef with Bèarnaise

Recipes

For a truly special meal, make this recipe – using the Reverse Searing Method – your centerpiece. Most roast recipes start by browning the outside first to develop a richly flavored crust before finishing it in the oven. Reverse searing is just the opposite. First, cook the roast in a low oven until it’s just about done. You can do this a couple hours ahead of time. By cooking the roast at low temperature, you ensure the roast will be evenly cooked.
When you are ready to serve, sear the roast in a hot pan or very hot oven to develop the delicious crust. Searing the already cooked meat takes less time than browning raw meat and does away with that gray outer ring that develops when you cook the roast the traditional way. Also, you don’t have to let the meat rest before carving.
