Wine Food Pairing - Blanc de Rouge and?

Wine Food Pairing ...... So much wine and so little time! My good friend Traudl, from Traudl's Heuriger, sent us off from her wine house with a couple of cases of terrific wines that they make right there on their wine farm. What could be better than wine made with a little Austrian love?

We decided on a very light "blush" wine named Blanc de husbands challenge, to come up with a meal to pair with this delightful wine.

The chef's hat came out, the kitchen was turned upside down, but the result was worth waiting for! The Austrian came up with a variation of the knoedel...the traditional Austrian dumpling...... He called it a wurstknoedel.......translation....a light potato dumpling stuffed with a hearty mix of ham, sausage and bacon. He served this with a crisp, mixed salad of greens dressed with pumpkin seed oil....YIKES!!!!!! What a meal!

Dessert, yes, just a bit....... was an "almost" eiswein (ice wine from Traudl's), very sweet and just the right finishing touch.....the wine? Lukas, a chardonnay ausbruch......

Enjoy the adventure of Wine Food Pairing bold....try new things! CHEERS!!
