Recipe Thursday: Festival Season Pairing


Spring has sprung, and festival season is upon us. Whether you’re planning to listen to live music or watch cinema outdoors, a well-thought-out picnic basket will do wonders to elevate your experience. Picnic food should, of course, be simple and fuss-free, but it certainly doesn't have to be boring. And neither does the wine you pack to go along with it.

Here’s what’s in our basket this season, courtesy of some great ideas from Saveur: A hearty and fresh salad, such as Farmer’s Salad with Beet Vinaigrette, paired with savory and easily-packable Corn Tamales with Tomatillo Salsa and Beef Short Rib Empanadas. For dessert, Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies. Last but not least, an exceptionally versatile wine, such as the Chateau Ollieux Romanis Corbieres “Cuvee Classique”, a red blend of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah. The balanced profile and natural spice flavorings (think cumin and dried herbs) will bring out the complementary spices in every dish you pack.
