Join us at 8am Saturday, December 19th. Just follow the hashtag #Winophiles; we will also be using #RésonanceWines #DomaineDrouhinOregon for our sponsors. So be sure to add those to anything you tweet so we can see it!

In the Glass

The idea behind this month's event - Oregon and Bourgogne Tied Houses - was for the bloggers to compare or contrast Burgundy wines that are made in Oregon. Fascinating premise, right? I thought so. And I received a bottle of the 2017 Résonance* Pinot Noir to pour and pair. 

Résonance is Maison Louis Jadot's first wine project outside of Burgundy, France. While not completely versed in the Louis Jadot wines, they have appeared on my table. For Thanksgiving this year, I had paired the Louis Jadot 2019 Rosé with a Turnip-Potato Soup. And back in 2016, I served Cod Grenobloise + a Louis Jadot Chardonnay for a French Winophiles event. So I was excited to taste a Résonance wine.

According to my research the Louis Jadot team became interested in the terroir and wines from Oregon. And in 2013, they acquired a vineyard in the Willamette Valley, specifically the Yamhil-Carlton AVA region. To solidify the Jadot ties even more, the Résonance project is led by Jadot winemaker Jacques Lardière who has over four decades of experience in winemaking in Burgundy. He was the perfect pick to begin making wines in up and coming Pinot Noir regions.

In the glass, the wine has a bright ruby glimmer. On the nose, it is fresh and fruity, with a lot of red and black fruits. But it also has some mild earthy notes. On the palate, the wine has a freshness with a long finish. 

On the Plate

I don't actually remember what inspired me to pair this Galette au Chou, savory cabbage galette, with the wine. It might have just been that I wanted a buttery, flaky crust involved in the pairing and chose the vegetables that I had in the bin. Whatever the case may be, this was a great match with the Résonance Pinot Noir.

Ingredients makes one 10-inch galette

Pâte Brisée

  •  2-1/2 cups flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1/2 cups finely ground blanched almonds or almond flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, very cold, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 3 to 4 Tablespoons cold water
  • 3 to 4 Tablespoons vodka


  • 1 organic onion, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups thickly sliced cabbage
  • 1 cup thickly sliced darker green (I used the tops of a bokchoy)
  • cheese for grating (I used parmesan), approximately 1/2 cup but divided
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Pâte Brisée
Place the flour, ground almonds, and cold butter the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine. Alternate between adding cold water and vodka, 1 Tablespoon at a time, until mixture just begins to clump together. If you squeeze some of the crumbly dough and it holds together, it's ready. If the dough doesn't hold together, add a little more water and pulse again. Note that too much water will make the crust tough. 

Once the dough comes together into a ball, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using. While you're waiting for the dough to chill, make the filling. 

Place onions in a rimmed skillet with a splash of olive oil. Cook on low heat until the onions are softened and beginning to caramelize. Set aside.

Place the cabbage and greens in a rimmed skillet with a splash of olive oil - I used the same pot! - and cook for 5 minutes. The leaves should still be opaque, but just beginning to wilt. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out the Pâte Brisée between two pieces of parchment paper. It doesn't need to be perfectly round. In fact, I like the organic edges on my crust. Place on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese over the crust and spoon the caramelized onions on top of that. Arrange the greens over the onions.

Bring the edges of the crust up and over the rim of the cabbage. Press down gently on the dough. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, followed by salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in the oven and bake for 50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and flaky. 

Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve immediately. Though, if you have leftovers, this is just as good cold the next day.

Well, that's a wrap on the French Winophiles' Oregon and Bourgogne Tied Houses event. Happy Holidays! Joyeux Noël! The #Winophiles will be back in January when Jeff of Food Wine Click! kicks off 2021 leading a discussion of What’s New in Bordeaux. Stay tuned...

  1. I am always so intimidated by crusts and doughs, but I think that your Pâte Brisée is something I could tackle (got to find some vodka though). I do love the organic nature of this dish and I love that it paired so well with the wine.

  2. This looks amazing! Can't wait to try, with vegan substitutions, of course! Happy holidays, Camilla.

  3. I love cabbage pastries in all their forms, this looks great!

  4. I've used many things in crusts but never alcohol. Can't wait to try that one. Glad to hear this was a perfect pairing!

  5. Love that you chose veggies you had on hand for this galette. Looks like the perfect pairing.

  6. I'm so hungry right now as I'm reading this (probably not wise) and I so want a slice of this galette with a glass of the Resonance. What a delicious brunch that would be! (since I'm reading this in the morning.)

  7. Incredible! This is a dish I've never tried and am now craving!

  8. I love cabbage, I love pâte brisée, and I love the Résonance - sounds like a superb pairing! I've never made crust of any kind with vodka - but now I have a use for the vodka that a (not even Russian) friend keeps gifting us!

  9. Galettle doughs are one dough I will tackle, and I love the cabbage filling.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
