Recipe Thursday: Insta-Worthy Poke and Rosé

Last summer, it was hard to miss glimmering shots of rolled ice cream and frozen rosé on Instagram. This summer, Instagram feeds will still be chock full of sweet treats (matcha-covered strawberries anyone?), but we’ll also tap into another rising trend – poke bowls. In Los Angeles alone, The Hollywood Reporter noted a ten-fold increase in poke establishments between 2015 and 2017. Poke bowls are essentially rice topped with sushi-grade raw fish (usually tuna) and some sort of marinade (recipe inspiration from The Gourmet RD, here). They are healthy, delicious and especially satisfying as light summer fare.

As the ultimate summer dish, it’s no surprise poke bowls go remarkably well with a glass of rosé. Try a medium-bodied rosé like Médeville et Fils Bordeaux Rosé. A Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend, this rosé stands up nicely to umami-rich marinades. An artfully assembled poke bowl alongside a frosty glass of rosé  – that’s an Insta-worthy shot right there!
