Demo Kitchen Recipe: Moroccan-Style Spiced Lamb ChopsPosted: November 24, 2020|Categories: News
The Moroccan spice in question has a hint of heat but is mostly about warm, aromatic and complex flavors that echo the spice notes inherent in many wines from Ribera del Duero. They can certainly be served as a main course with a charmoula sauce, cous cous and perhaps some roasted vegetables but they also make great appetizers with the bones as built-in handles. Have your butcher french them down to the eye or do it yourself if you are handy with a knife. You can use pre-ground spices but if you want the best flavor, start with whole spices and grind them yourself. These are easy, flavorful and so good with Tempranillo that if you make them once they will quickly rise to the top of your list of go to lamb recipes. Pairs wonderfully with a smokey Scotch Penicillin cocktail, or beer-wise, a spicy Belgian style dubbel like Westmalle Dubbel or Unibroue Maudite. 16 individual appetizer-sized lamb chops.
Beaujolais Nouveau 2020Posted: November 23, 2020|Categories: WineLe Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! Just a few days ago, we celebrated the 2020 release of Beaujolais Nouveau, an annual celebration on the third Thursday of every November. This wine from the Gamay variety has origins in post-WWII France when wineries were cash-poor. The region of Beaujolais, just south of Burgundy, was given permission to release a primeur wine allowing wineries to generate revenue just weeks after grapes were picked. In the 1950s, these high acid, light bodied red wines with confected red fruit aromas became very popular in Parisian bistros. Across France, the release of Beaujolais Nouveau marked the end of another harvest, a reason to celebrate over a long meal with plenty of wine.

Barrel to Bottle: TripelsPosted: November 13, 2020|Categories: BeerRoger was recently asked about his "Aha Moment" in beer; that one drink that makes you realize what beer (or wine, or spirits) is capable of. For him, it was tripels. The beer scene is dominated by bold flavors, and tripels are not lacking in that department. Bold, complex and very easy to pair with food. Take a trip from the Trappist breweries of Belgium to a walled city in Canada, to America's best takes on the style.
