A fresh crisp salad from Chef Nathan Lyon, who has been a contestant on The Next Food Network star and has hosted the Discovery Health series A Lyon in the Kitchen. He has another show on PBS called Growing a Greener World and in 2011 his first cookbook Great Food Starts Fresh came out. It is a seasonal cookbook with over 100 recipes.
We are always looking for a "good wine deal" and are so glad to found this awesome Fumé Blanc from Ferrari-Carano. Well this was a so called "great bargain" because we purchased it in spring as a Bevmo's Special - where you buy 1 bottle for the full price and the second bottle is only 5c. Love to find good wines under $15 and with 92 Points this was like the Saks Fifth Avenue annual sale.
Thanks to Robert Mondavi who created the Fumé Blanc in 1968 by aging Sauvignon Blanc in oak barrels. Usually Sauvignon Blanc's are aged in stainless steel.
