A great recipe not only starts with great taste, but also healthy quality ingredients. Inspired by wine country —recipes, simple and updated Mediterranean way of preparing and eating food that changes with the seasons and celebrates the fruits from the fields and orchard, farm raised meats from the pasture, fish from the rivers, and seafood from the sea, paired with your favorite wines.
??“A visit to wine country revives the soul and soothes the senses,” notes chef-author Robin Goldstein, in the introduction to her collection of luscious recipes inspired by the bounty of California’s Santa Ynez Valley. These dishes celebrate the pairing of fresh, flavorful seasonal ingredients with the high-quality varietals that have earned renown for this part of Santa Barbara County. Robin draws on her sojourns and travels in Mediterranean countries as well as family favorites to create her inventive and mouthwatering cuisine. Bite-size starters, like Crab Beignets and Prosciutto-Wrapped Grilled Peaches are perfect for setting the mood for a party or beginning an intimate dinner. A section on cheese opens with setting up the Ultimate Cheese Board and goes on to highlight her takes on some creamy classics, like Baked Brie with
Caramelized Apples and Onions or Oven-Baked Cheese Fondue.
Roasted Corn and Crab Chowder, Grilled Scallops, and Parmesan-Crusted Chicken are just a few of the tantalizing dishes that Goldstein has created
to pair with white wines, while the sight of the Santa Ynez Valley’s fruit-filled vines has led to an imaginative array of grape-infused recipes, from
Wine-Harvest Grilled Pizza and Grilled Lamb Medallions with Grape Glaze to a sweet-savory Spanish Grape Tart. Red wine pairings come into their own with dishes like Syrah-Braised Short Ribs and Fresh Tomato Pasta Puttanesca. And for dessert? Who could resist an Autumn Fruit Compote with Lemon Panna Cotta, a holiday season’s Mulled Red Wine Ice Cream, or the ultimate tribute to wine country—Dark Chocolate Wine Truffles.
With more than 70 vividly photographed recipes, Chef Robin brings to the table her irresistible passion for sharing fine food and wine with joyous gatherings of family and friends.
