Simple, quick, and delicious is how to describe the combination of fresh, tangy goat cheese and spicy jams served with crisp rustic crostini.
One jar of the jam will yields enough to make 2 of these little cheese plates. If you are having a large party we recommend serving at least two. It is a good idea to place one on the main appetizer table and another on a side table.
- 1, 4-ounce chub Cypress Grove Chevre
- ½ cup Earth & Vine Red Bell Pepper & Ancho Chili Jam
Use clean kitchen shears to carefully cut chevre out of wrapper. Place cheese in the center of a medium-sized decorative plate and top with 1/3 cup jam. Spoon another 3 to 4 tablespoons around the base. Let come to room temperature before serving.
Serve with crisp crostini or your favorite cracker assortment.
Sauvignon Blanc is taut, supple and herbal. With high acidity and aromas of tea, meadow and green herb, Sauvignon Blanc has a suitable name derived from the French "sauvage", meaning "wild".
Considered by many to be the most noble and unique wine grape varietal in the world. These kings of Alsace's wines are known for their soaring acidity and considerable concentration. This wine is often lower in alcohol, giving it less body. Rieslings are dry, with a fruity yet firm taste.
An ancient natural mutation of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris can vary dramatically in taste depending on where it is grown. In the Tre Venezie in Italy, where it is known as Pinot Grigio, it is often a simple, light, crisp wine. However, Italian Pinot Grigio shows little similarity to the majestic, lavish, sometimes spicy Pinot Gris of Alsace. The aromas of Pinot Gris suggest peach skins or orange rind. Pinot Grigio is currently the best-selling imported wine in the United States, and it's fun to say too!
