How We Enjoy Dolce: Savory Pairings

01.09.14

To drink Dolce on its own is a pleasure; as a complement to a delectable dish, it is an experience. With that said, we would like to share with you a series of posts providing a guide to pairing food with our late harvest wine. Transform a simple course into a gastronomical delight! So far we have only shared dessert recipes from Chef Trevor Eliason, but the balance of rich flavors and delicate acidity in Dolce makes it a wonderful accompaniment to savory bites as well. Impress palates at your next intimate dinner or extravagant soirée with these great tips and tricks:

Most Compatible Foie Gras, Seared, Chilled Foie Gras Terrines, Foie Gras Mousse. Noble cheese such as: Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola. Dry-aged, salty cheeses as an accent: Vieille Mimolette, Asiago, Parmesan, Dry-aged Gouda. Some cured meats: Prosciutto, Bresaola, Coppa, Culatello.

Style & Ideas Crumbled Blue Cheese with Raspberry Vinaigrette and Hazelnuts. Chilled Foie Gras Terrine with Wine Gelée. Seared Foie Gras with Mango Coulis. Fig Wrapped in Prosciutto with Curl of Parmesan. One Perfectly Ripened Cheese with Dried Apricots and Fresh Pistachios.

When to Serve As a First Course: Foie Gras or Cured Meats. As the Cheese Course: Served after the Main Course. As Dessert: Any cheese course with Dolce can be served instead of dessert.

Notes for Savories Keep these dramatically contrasting flavors very simple. Use very few ingredients. Avoid cluttered plates. Always taste your creation with the wine before serving them, to ensure a dynamic match!
