Cacio e Pepe
This week we are continuing the pasta month celebration at our weekly wine tasting and pairing Friday night. Arny will be preparing Cacio e Pepe with Italian Sausage and Mushrooms. A pleasant peppery pasta dish, Cacio e Pepe is tossed with an emulsified sauce of cheese and black pepper that is bound by starchy pasta cooking water. The heat melts the cheese, while the starches in the water help bind the pepper and cheese to the pasta.
Your pairings for the evening include: Simply Fruit Watermelon Splash, infused with natural watermelon, this clear wine with a light, red hue glistens delicately in your glass and has just the right amount of sweetness; Caricature Red Blend, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah, this wine has fresh cherry, juicy blackberry and rich raspberry aromas and flavors; and Modales Chardonnay, a delicious light chardonnay from Fennville, Michigan.
