Brie & Gruyere Mac n Cheese with Prosciutto - Julia Chrisco
April 12, 2019
This is a recipe I came up with a few years back, but tweaked to pair better with the 2016 Westside Chardonnay. We got our first bit of sunshine today, but it's still too early to tell if we should be transitioning out of our cold weather comfort food meals. So for now I'm leaving the sunshine-y notes to the wine glass. This macaroni and cheese is extra rich and creamy because the pasta is cooked directly in the milk. I chose to use Brie and Gruyere in this recipe because together they pair exceptionally well with this wine. The creaminess of the brie would go well with any Chardonnay, while the tangy notes of the gruyere cut through the bright, perfect-for-springtime acidity of the Westside. The wine and pasta are a perfect balance of creamy comfort and crisp refreshment. - Julia Chrisco
Caprese Salad with Grilled Turkey - Alyson White
April 12, 2019
I was totally inspired by the shining sun with this recipe. Don’t get me wrong, the rains were a very welcome sight after years of drought, and my garden has never looked better. But to be smile is going to have to be surgically removed now that Spring is finally here. This salad is a five ingredient gem packed full of flavor and freshness, perfect for a quiet night in the patio or a full-on backyard party. The sweet pomegranate glaze perfectly balances the creamy fresh mozzarella and the spicy notes in the turkey - and it looks beautiful. I’ve paired this with the 2016 Westside Farms Chardonnay because the wine absolutely sings! The sweetness of the glaze with the heat from the red pepper flakes bring out the tropical fruit nose and palate blast of acid in this wine. Such harmony! - Alyson White
