Recipe Thursday: A Taste of Spring


Spring hath arrived! Outside, the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and the days are longer. In the kitchen, we start to see a shift from starchy winter vegetables to light, fresh greens. For us, there is no better combination to reflect the transition to spring than goat cheese and Sancerre. A great way to ease into this combo, when you’re not quite ready for a cooling salad, is a hearty pasta featuring goat cheese and a spring vegetable staple: Asparagus.  Check out this Pasta with Goat Cheese, Lemon, and Asparagus recipe from Bon Appetit.

Sancerre, such as our Wine of the Week Chaumeau Maison d'Anais, is most often chosen to accompany goat cheese because the wine’s zippy acidity matches the acidity in the cheese. Further, as Sancerre has notes of citrus and tangy herbs, it is a harmonious pairing with our velvety goat cheese, lemon and asparagus pasta. There are not many wines out there that pair well with asparagus, but this is one of them!
