Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse

Ask ten french chefs to define the quintessential Bouillabaisse and you’ll get 11 different answers so we’ve decided to defer to “The French Chef” herself, Julia Child.  Pair this wonderful dish with La Vie Dansante’s 2015 Roussanne.

Syrah Braised Short Ribs

Here’s one to daydream about until next fall.  This recipe was presented at our Barrel Tasting in January of 2018 and is made with the La Vie Dansante Syrah Port and 2015 Syrah, neither of which are yet available.  No worries, until they’re ready for release use any favorite Syrah and Port.

Venison Bourguignon

Fall and winter bring a change to heartier, more rustic fare and the bigger wines that complement them.  In Provincial cooking that means getting closer to the land with stews made of root vegetables and wild game.  Try this venison stew paired with our 2014 Syrah.

Turkey, Cranberry, Bacon & Brie Sandwiches

The perfect use for left over Turkey on the day after Thanksgiving, and the perfect pairing for La Vie Dansante’s 2016 Rosé of Grenache!

Hazelnut Crusted Scallops

Tender scallops crusted with a crispy mixture of panko and chopped hazelnuts in a cream sauce based on the 2015 White Blend. A flavor combination sure to make you close your eyes and sigh.

Roasted Vegetables with Roasted Pepper Hummus

A twist on the summer classic “Hummus and Veggies”, roasting the vegetables ads a certain “je ne sais quoi”, perhaps elegance, to a simple snack.  Pair with the 2016 Mourvèdre Rosé for a pre-dinner treat.
