May & June Monthly Food Celebrations

Even I have to search for inspiration at times... so this month I give you my secret:  Monthly Celebrations spark ideas and creativity.  If you are searching for a new party theme or just something to shake up your routine, check these out:

National Barbecue Month -- Having BBQ? Rich, savoury BBQ sauces pairs with big, bold red wines:  Bodegas Langa Garnacha (Calatayud, Spain) -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Loaded Potato Month -- Stuffed and restuffed with all the goods! Pair this indulgence with Réserve de Générac Costières de Nîmes (Southern Rhône, France) -- Reg $13.99 | Mixed Case $11.19

National Chocolate Custard -- Creamy, rich chocolate with ripe cherries and subtle sweetness. Pair with: La Farra Extra Dry Prosecco (Veneto, Italy) -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

Month National Egg Month --  Pending on how you crack it (hahaha), egg pairings are versatile! However, a fresh poached egg with frisee paired with Chateau des Eyssards Bergerac Sec Cuvée Prestige (Bergerac, France) is hard to beat!
 -- Reg $19.99 | INSIDER $16.99 | Mixed Case $13.59

National Hamburger Month-- What would you have with a killer burger?  Even a veggie or vegan burger would pair well with: 1851 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley, Washington) -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Salad Month -- Favorite salad?  I LOVE nicoise salad- it's a French salad of tuna, egg, capers, fresh greens and Nicoise olives. Pair this salad with: La Colline aux Princes Sancerre (Loire Valley, France) -- Reg $27.99 | Mixed Case $22.39

National Salsa Month --  Unless it is a fruit salsa, this killer Tempranillo will be perfect for your salsa celebration: Bodegas Casto Pequeño Cotoval Crianza -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Strawberry Month -- Pair any fresh strawberries with this delightfully efferscent dessert wine: Vinchio & Vaglio Serra “Nivasco” Brachetto -- Reg $17.99 | INSIDER $11.99 | Mixed Case $9.59

May 1-7: National Raisin Week -- Really?  Even if you are not a fan of raisins, this delectable wine is worth the pairing experience: Tenuta di Artimino NV Vin Santo di Carmignano (Tuscany, Italy) -- Reg $28.99 | Mixed Case $23.99

May 3-9: National Herb Week -- Time to turn to the hillside herbs of Southern France, specifically Languedoc Roussillon. Pair any herby dish (within reason) with: Vignerons Propriétés Associés Première Réserve (Languedoc, France) -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

The 3rd Monday of May and the rest of the week: American Craft Beer Week --  Keep it in Ballard!  Reuben's Brews!  We feature: Roasted Rye ($5.89 16.9 fl oz) & Crickey IPA ($5.69 16.9 fl oz)


National Candy Month --  When in doubt, bubbles!  Keep it simple with: La Farra Prosecco Brut (Veneto, Italy) -- Reg $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Dairy Month -- Washington State proudly has several creameries! Pair Seattle-based Beecher's Flagship with Nottola Rosso di Montepulciano (Tuscany, Italy) -- Reg $17.99 | INSIDER $16.99 | Mixed Case $13.59

National Fresh Fruit & Vegetables Month -- Choices, choices...  A safe bet would be Grüner Veltliner: Weingut Prechtl Altenberg Grüner Veltliner (Weinviertel, Austria) -- Reg $17.99 | INSIDER $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Iced Tea Month -- Oh yes, yes you can pair with ice tea:  ROSÉ! Chateau Barbanau L'Instant Rosé (Provence, France) -- Reg $22.99 | INSIDER $14.99 | Mixed Case $11.99

National Papaya Month -- Looking for something tropical to pair with? Enjoy Bodegas Casto Pequeño Cotoval Verdejo (Castilla y Leon, Spain) -- Reg $11.99 | Mixed Case $9.59

Cheers!  Jaci
