Farm-raised Venison Tenderloin – the healthier red meat – is a game-changer. No guilt. Serve it with Green Peppercorn Sauce and Sicily’s noble red wine, Nero d’Avola.
Risotto makes a great first course, with smoked trout adding salty complexity and asparagus adding color and crunch. The dish calls for a dry, but fruity white wine. Check out my notes on Gewürztraminer and Muscadet, wines you need to get to know!
Chicken Cacciatore – food for the soul! Some recommend pairing it with Sangiovese; others opt for a spicy, fruity white like Gewurztraminer. I tested those, but then found a superior option.
Give the outdoor grill a rest. And save the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for other dishes. This is a terrific, oven-roasted recipe that allows you to introduce Gewürztraminer to your guests!
