With the coolness of Fall behind us and the winter chill upon us, our menus tend to be a bit heavier and heartier: meats, beef stew, short ribs…yum! I’m excited to break out my crock pot…and so is my husband!
|Shout out to Chrissy Teigen for this AMAZING beef stew recipe! Check it out, HERE|
With this menu our wine selections also change. I must say, season aside, I still might choose champagne…however, that aside the best choice(s) to compliment these heartier dishes would be Reds!
[Champagne Darling Inspiration]
Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. Your preference. Even true wine connoisseur’s (which let’s be honest, I love wine but I am not) don’t agree on this point.
I typically lean toward a Malbec, Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. If you like something a little light-bodied, you might try a Shiraz or Chianti.
Even if it’s just dinner for two, I’d start with a sharp cheddar (on your cheese plate), lots of amazing goodness in between and for the perfect finish….Dark Chocolate…drops!
