A Sneak Peak: The #ItalianFWT Bloggers Talk Italian Bubbles

 

This month, I am leading a discussion for the Italian Food Wine Travel bloggers about sparkling Italian wines...just in time for the holidays. 

You can read my invitation, here. You'll find more details in that post about the difference between Frizzante and Spumante; the different processes of creating bubbles - Metodo Classico, or Metodo Champenoise, versus Charmat, or Martinotti Method; and, while Prosecco is probably the most well-known Italian sparkling wine, at least in America, there's an entire range of Italian sparklers, including Prosecco Superiore or Prosecco DOCG, Lambrusco, Franciacorta, and more.

A few bloggers received a selection of Prosecco Superiore from the Consorzio of Prosecco Superiore DOCG, but everyone was free to explore any and all sparkling wines from Italy. Here's what the group will be sharing...

  • Terri of Our Good Life says Beviamo alla nostra! Prosecco Superiore and Happy Christmas!
  • Marcia of Joy of Wine is Celebrating the Season with sparkling Freisa.
  • Cindy of Grape Experiences writes about Pure Trentodoc – Sparkling Wines from the Mountains.
  • Jill of L'Ocsasion encourages us to Be in Italy for the Holidays with This Bubbly Wine Lineup.
  • Gwendolyn of Wine Predator pushes Beyond Prosecco? Try These Sustainable Sparkling Wines from Italy's Erbaluce, Franciacorta, Lambrusco, Pignoletto.
  • Lynn of Savor the Harvest gives us Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco to Make Your Holiday Sparkle - La Tordera Rive Di Guia.
  • Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm says Cheers to 2021...2020 Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out.
  • Susannah of Avvinare pours Versatile Lambrusco for the Holidays.
  • Deanna of Asian Test Kitchen serves Val D'Oca Prosecco Paired with Party Starters.
  • Payal of Keep the Peas offers A ‘SeeYaNever2020’ Toast with Italian Bubbly.
  • Linda of My Full Wine Glass says Hello Again, Lambrusco - Everyone Deserves a Second Chance.
  • Jane of Always Ravenous pairs a Frizzante with Holiday Sweet Treats.
  • Robin of Crushed Grape Chronicles pours Prosecco - Joyful Bubbles to “Wring” Out 2020.
  • Jen of Vino Travels is ready to Sparkle up the Holidays with Italian Prosecco. 
  • Martin of ENOFYLZ Wine Blog offers A Taste of 21st Century Lambrusco; Paltrinieri Lambrusco di Sorbara Radice.
  • Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla is Celebrating with Prosecco Superiore Amidst the Pandemic.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
