I have one of the best jobs in the world!  As "Dave the Wine Merchant" I taste thousands of wine every year. Eliminating the vast majority, I introduce the lucky few to members of my online wine sampling club.  Of the thousands I taste, only about sixty will make it to that year's "Wine Discoveries"

But how can one love wine without loving food, and vice versa?  I simply don't think it's possible.  So as an avid home chef for over 30 years, I enjoy home-testing recipes to share with our club members.  Each recipe must not only be good and easily prepared at home in an average kitchen (well, a foodie's kitchen) they must showcase the specific wines going out to members in their next shipment.

For more recipes or wine information, go to www.sidewayswineclub.com 

Soooo many!!  But here are a few that come to mind:

  • Mariner's Mussels
  • Slow-cooked pulled pork
  • Lamb burgers with balsamic onions and crumbled goat cheese
  • A perfect omelette 
  • Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes! (my Celtic roots?)
  • Braised anything
  • Ribolita
  • Home-made Agnolotti
  • Duck confit in or on just about anything
  • A perfectly roasted chicken, hot or cold

Now I'm hungry... see you later.

This is a favorite breakfast at our weekend farm in Boonville.. I've never made these waffles without getting raves from our guests. You'll never go back to your old recipe again! — jwedzee 11/28/2009
