You can read more about the Curated List of Wines and Cheeses for the #MadeinFrance event where Whole Foods Market Global Buyers Devon Broglie and Cathy Strange will be chatting during the Facebook Live event. Don't forget that's coming up next Thursday, October 5th. So, if you're available, hop on and follow the hashtag - #MadeinFrance - between 2:30pm and 3:00pm Pacific time.


When I first read about the Vignobles des Roches Morgon, Epoisses came to mind as a perfect pairing. I love rich, stinky cheeses; I love them even more when paired with a wine that has depth and elegance.


Vignobles des Roches Morgon is an extraordinary red wine. Made from Gamay grapes this wine has a depth that is significant, but not overpowering. It's simultaneously light and rich. It's an enigma in a bottle. An amazing enigma.


Epoisses cheese from Hervé Mons is everything you want from a rich cheese. It's decadent and stinky. Oh, it's divine!


I served it with a variety of fruits and nuts. But, really, all I needed was to be happy was Vignobles des Roches Morgon + Epoisses...and some way to get the cheese to my mouth. I used crackers since my mom always chastised me for licking the knife. Ha.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa

Learning About Chablis, A Compelling Label, and Gougères #PureChablis #Winophiles #Sponsored
