A great post has just gone up on the wine blog sourgrapes.ie. My favourite wino Lar Veale matches some recipes from Irish blog awards nominees – including CheapEats – to just the right wine. Cheers.
CheapEats.ie is rising towards the top of the Irish food blog scene. With their Grilled Trout, Sweet Potato Mash, Rocket and Sun-Dried Tomato Tapenade recipe, I’d pair it up with a wine with a bit of body, but I think I’d stick with a white as red can sometimes clash with fish oils to give a horrible metallic taste.
I’m opting for a Riesling from Alsace which can hopefully stand up to the sweet potato and tapenade. Alsace is relatively underestimated and undervalued. Sheridan’s in Dublin have a good selection. Look up the producer, Paul Ginglinger.
