Roquefort & Roughage Salad

Posted by Monica Yu on

Roquefort & Roughage Salad

We love this recipe for Roquefort & Roughage Salad because of the joyous harmony of the citrusy dressing with the pungent creaminess of the cheese. This raw sheep's milk cheese coats the leaves beautifully making these cruciferous vegetables absolutely delicious to devour. For this recipe, we sourced the French Roquefort from Milk Farm, a cheese shop in Eagle Rock. They had many delicious options of cheese in the blue family that would also do wonderfully in this salad. You can source your blue cheese from just about any cheese shop or grocery store.  Not everyone loves a pungent blue cheese and finding...

Hearty & Meaty Cassoulet

Have any extra ingredients from your New Year Party? Don't let it go to waste, start off the 2019 new year with this slow cooking, aromatic and savory Cassoulet. Cassoulet originated from South of France, so we suggest you pair this with a Cabernet/Syrah blend such as Chateau La Tour de l'Eveque Noir et Or  . It has a Syrah base, making them natural partners for thick stews. The pungent, wild flavors of pork and lamb will be tamed when served with Syrah. Serves 6–-8 people, Cook Time 2–-2 ½ hours Ingredients: 1 lb of Pork Butt, cut into 1” cubes 1 lb of Leg of...

This recipe can easily be vegetarian and can be served as a main dish with a side of crusty bread and a simple salad. If you are soothing a seasonal illness, a hot toddy might be an appropriate pairing. Why not start off the new year with a...

What is Sauternes?

What is Sauternes?

Some of the world's greatest wines are sweet. No, we are not referencing wines that have been altered with levels of sugar or halted fermentation to achieve sweetness. We are  talking about Sauternes, a golden colored, sweet French wine from the Bordeaux region. Drive about 25 miles southeast towards the Graves appellation, there are two neighboring sub-regions, Barsac and Sautneres.  These two regions are along side the Garonne and the Ciron tributary. The two rivers provide an unique microclimate along with the morning fogs and warm afternoons. The water of the Ciron is cooler than the Garonne, thus in the...

Blintzes Jubilee

Whether you're celebrating Hanukkah or Christmas, this blintz recipe will delight your families. Wake up to a special breakfast on Christmas morning or light the menorah with blitzes for dessert. There are so many ways to flavor and top your cheese blintzes, but for this recipe we've decided to use cherries jubilee as our inspiration. The pleasant kick of orange flavor brings a lot of seasonal taste and complexity to the filling. Since making crepes can be tricky for a first timer, we recommend making a little extra batter since your first couple of tries may not be successful. Luckily,...
