Cheese from Joe


St. Angel Triple Crème Brie

 Here is a luxurious special occasion cheese that screams for pairing with your favorite bottle of sparkling wine! This French triple-crème made from pasteurized cow’s milk is pillow-like and covered with a fluffy, white rind. With the texture of chilled, whipped butter, its flavor is buttery, with the right amount of salt and a hint of white mushroom. Enjoy this French masterpiece with champagne or a crisp Sauvignon Blanc and a French baguette!

WINE TIPS FROM TOM

"The Wine Guy"

Rediscover Sunday Brunch

Weekend brunch at home is very special indulgence. Especially if you include one of the growing number of sparkling wines available to enhance your culinary possibilities. Keep your kitchen endeavors simple, but flavorful and creative. Sear a fresh salmon fillet and serve it on a spicy French toast that has been dipped in a chili sauce infused egg mixture. Or saute oysters with bacon bits, scrambled egg and a topping of a fried onion or leek and sweet pepper combination. And be sure to have a glass of sparkling California Blanc Noir or Italian Prossecco to compliment flavors on your plate. If you decide to make mimosas, use fresh squeezed OJ and a drier brut sparkling wine.
