Wine Country Recipe: Cheese Fondue

Monday, February 9th, 2015

FN_Tyler Flrorence Cheese Fonue.tif

Nothing screams romance more than fondue!  So, this Valentine’s Day, if you’d prefer to forgo the crowded restaurants and opt for a quick, simple and romantic meal at home, we’ve got you covered with this cheese fondue recipe.  Pair with a salad, your favorite Temecula Valley Riesling and perhaps some chocolate fondue for dessert…and…voilà, you’ve got the perfect Valentine’s dinner.

Ingredients:

1/2 pound imported Swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 pound Gruyere cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cherry brandy, such as kirsch
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Pinch nutmeg
Assorted dippers

Directions:

In a small bowl, coat the cheeses with cornstarch and set aside.  Rub the inside of the ceramic fondue pot with the garlic, then discard.

Over medium heat, add the wine and lemon juice and bring to a gentle simmer.  Gradually stir the cheese into the simmering liquid.  Melting the cheese gradually encourages a smooth fondue.  Once smooth, stir in cherry brandy, mustard and nutmeg.

Arrange an assortment of bite-sized dipping foods on a lazy Susan around fondue pot.  Serve with chunks of French and pumpernickel breads.  Some other suggestions are Granny Smith apples and blanched vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and asparagus.  Spear with fondue forks or wooden skewers, dip, swirl and enjoy!

Suggested pairings:

Baily Vineyard & Winery ~ 2013 Riesling – A delicate, dry and fruity white.

Briar Rose Winery ~ 2013 Riesling – Opening up with a soft apricot on the front and light fruity sweetness on the finish.

Lorenzi Estate Vineyards & Winery ~ 2012 Riesling – The nose is aromatic with spicy stone fruit with a combination of sweet Meyer lemons, along with tropical touches of mango and pineapple.

Mount Palomar Winery ~ 2012 Riesling – Prominent scents of pineapple and soft hints of star fruit, with a smooth tropical finish.

Wine Country Recipe ~ Wild Mushroom Soup with Parmesan Croutons

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Wild Mushroom Soup

There’s nothing better than a hot bowl of soup on a chilly winter evening.  This hearty, earthy, woodsy, robust soup is a meal in itself.  Serve with your favorite Temecula Valley wine.

Ingredients:

For the soup:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
3 cups thinly sliced crimini mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced trumpet mushrooms (caps and stems)
1 cup bite-sized pieces of chanterelle, porcini or oyster mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced shitake mushrooms (caps only)
4 cups beef stock
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons flour, mixed with 2 tablespoons water
salt and ground black pepper

For the croutons:

4 cups bite-sized cubes of rustic bread
1/4 cup  finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

For the soup:
Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pot, over medium-high heat, until the butter begins to sizzle.  Add the shallots and garlic.  Cook for 1 minute until the garlic is slightly browned.  Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until tender.  Add the beef stock and bring to a simmer.  Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cream and bring to a simmer again.  Stir in the flour mixture and simmer for 3 more minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve the soup hot, topped with croutons.

For the croutons:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Put the bread, Parmesan and thyme in a large bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil and toss until combined.  Spread on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for ten minutes.

Serves 4 to 6

Suggested Pairings:

Bel Vino Winery ~ 2010 Merlot – Medium to dark color presents aromas of cloves, cassis, with dark and jammy fruits.

Longshadow Ranch Winery ~ Merlot (unfiltered) – An extraordinary red the way it was meant to be.  Gorgeous and full of life with a fruit forward finish.

Mount Palomar Winery ~ 2011 Merlot – Scents of daisy, cocoa, cherry and prominent tastes of plum and black pepper.

Oak Mountain Winery ~ 2011 Merlot – Soft nose, with flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and plum with abundant smoky oak.
