Challenging Wine Pairing: Chicken Stir-Fry

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

We have had beautiful warm weather in Seattle lately, so I decided that this month’s challenging wine pairing should be something easy and light that would call for refreshing white wines. My family and I love Asian food, so I decided to prepare a chicken stir-fry with rice and egg rolls. All items were easily […]

Challenging Wine Pairing: Grilled Pork Chops

Challenging Wine Pairing: Fettuccini Alfredo with Grilled Chicken

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

While my family and I really enjoy creamy dishes, we try to avoid them on a regular basis for the sake of healthier eating. However, once in a while we do like to treat ourselves to a dish that we probably shouldn’t eat! Fettuccini Alfredo has always been one of my favorite dishes. For this […]
