The World of Bruschetta and Wine
There is just something satisfying about toasted slices of baguette topped with an array of goodness paired with the right glass of wine. http://lorrieswineandfoodworld.blogspot.com/2012/01/wine-review-frank-family-vineyards-2009.html I just love Bruschetta. This is a fun way to share small bites with friends that are simple and easy to make.
I like to do a light spread of fig jam, fresh goat cheese, crushed red pepper flakes, a few drops of balsamic vinegar on top each thin slice of baguette, that has been brushed with EVOO, and baked in a 350 degree oven to just get slightly toasted. Then I finish with each small bite with lightly fried pieces of prosciutto, then put them back in the oven to warm the fresh goat cheese. This pairs so well with Rose` wines still and of course my favorite, sparkling Rose` wine. Try this with these two recommendations and tell me what you think. http://lorrieswineandfoodworld.blogspot.com/2012/04/wine-review-ceja-vineyards-2009-blanc.html
