Food & Wine: Stews for February                        

As the daffodils manage to poke through the layers of hubris and debris, I’m still bundled up contemplating which stews and soups to make this week.  Lentils, beef stew with potatoes and sage, Provençal chicken stew …  It’s still stew season, and we all have our favorites.  Here’s a list of some classic pairings to enjoy as we make our way toward spring and watching the daffodils unfold.

·        Lamb and Broccoli stew - brined lamb shoulder slowly braised in bay leaf, rosemary, garlic, thyme with steamed broccoli. Pair this with Foppiano Vineyards Petite Sirah or 5 Oros Vendimia Seleccionada Garnacha

·       Beef stew with Potatoes and Carrots- braised beef in balsamic vinegar, thyme, garlic, carrots, potatoes and onions. Serve with Le Gravillas Sablet or D’Arenburg Shiraz

·        Provençal Rabbit Stew-  Rabbit stewed in plum tomatoes, capers, green olives, Dijon mustard, onions. Pair with Jean D’Alibert Lanquedoc Syrah/Grenache

·       Cajun Chicken Stew- cayenne, peppers, rice on side. Pair with Wish Wine Co Zinfandel 2013 or Sleight of Hands Spell Binder 2013

·       Pork and Hominy-  poblanos, hominy, tomatoes, marjoram. Pair with Tinto Roa Ribera del Duero or Secateurs Red Blend 2012

·       Giambotta-  potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers topped extra virgin olive oil and served with toasted bread and hard cheeses such as Caprino d’Aspromonte, Piacentino or Pecorino. Pair with Palazzo Malgara Nero d’Avola

Chef's Corner
Chef Tracey Stoner Crannell 
Chef Tracey trained at the Baltimore International Culinary College and has been chef at restaurants from Captiva Island, Florida, to Nashville to Seattle.  But the bigger the kitchen, the further removed the chef gets from actually preparing the food that you eat.  When she joined the Portalis Wine Bar team in September 2007, she returned to her basic love of cooking in what her chef husband calls her “dollhouse” kitchen.  There she took on the task of expanding our menu so that our customers would view us as a place to eat dinner while drinking their delicious glass of wine instead of just a place to have a snack.  She has exceeded our expectations … and we think our customers’ as well.
