What to Serve

APPROX $30: Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône's and Barefoot Moscato

To stay on budget, choose a wine that complements both the appetizer and the main. An affordable rich Rhone Valley red will do the trick. Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône's notes of black raspberry and wood smoke relate beautifully to the earthy and sweet flavours in both of these dishes.

For dessert, enjoy the interplay as the exotic peach, ginger and orange blossom notes of Barefoot Moscato mingle with the orange-honey flavours. Yum.
