Food + Wine 

Simple, Fresh, Good & EASY
That's our theme for the new year, and we're using Jamie Oliver's new book: 5 Ingredients for inspiration. Back story: We got our 16-year old a cookbook for Christmas. She enjoys food, is an adventurous eater ...can't scramble an egg! Had fun at Book Larder: A Community Cookbook Store getting suggestions for an engaging, yummy, EASY cookbook to inspire a teen. Landed on Jamie Oliver's new: 5 Ingredients. I don't know if she'll learn to cook, but she'll get lots of good meals out of it for sure, because I'm hooked! We'll use these simple, fresh, good & EASY recipes at Portalis for some 2018 wine pairing ideas, starting with:
Sizzling Seared Scallops --
 Pair with Bodages Langa Chardonnay (Catalayud, Spain) -- organic, lightly oaked, delicious.
Epic Rib-eye Steak -- Pair with (splurge) Chateau des Gravieres Graves (Bordeaux, France) or (bargain) 1851 Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley, WA)
Scrambled Egg Omelette -- How very French! Pair with (splurge) Chevalliers Chablis (Burgundy, France) or Ozilhan Réservé Blanc (Southern Rhône, France)

Thai Red Chicken Soup -- It's spicy, so enjoy with a round white that will calm the fire: Domaine Moltes Tradition Riesling (Alsace, France) or Haut de Mourier Viognier (Languedoc, France) or Weingut Prechtl Alte Reben Grüner Veltliner (Weinviertel, Austria). 
Easy Sausage Carbonara -- Sausage calls for Chianti from Colli Senesi, full of blue fruits and perfect for sausage flavors. We recommend: Nottola Chianti Colli Senesi or Andreucci Chianti Colli Senesi. Both would be outstanding!
Crab & Fennel Spaghetti -- Enjoy seafood meals with world-class fish wine like Albariño (we recommned: Outon Albariño from Spain's Rias Baixas) or a light red with some licorice undertones. We recommend Palazzo Malgara Negroamaro from Salento, Italy's heel of boot. Seafood is a staple in this part of the world, and this wine would pair beautifully!
Roast Tikka Chicken -- Curry flavors call for an off-dry white, a juicy red, or bubbly! Looking for something festive? Go with Bodegas Maset del Lleo Cava Reserve from vineyards outside of Barcelona.
Pork & Mash Gratin -- A little spice from the Muscadelle in this French white blend would be terrific: Chateau des Eyssards Sec (Bergerac, France) or a lighter red with lean pork. Try: Weingut Castelfeder Vernatsch (Alto Adige, Italy)
Ginger Shakin' Beef -- It's beef, but it's got some sweetness with the honey. Don't go too tannic! A Pinot Noir would be great. Splurge with Chelan Cellars Pinot Noir (Lake Chelan, WA). Go thrify with Louise Dubois 1885 Pinot Noir (Languedoc, France).

Have fun! More to come...
