*each month Juan Sanchez, owner of La Dernière Goutte and Laura pick out some wines that are drinking especially well. Here are this months selections.
We have gone through a lot of cavists over the last three years. Most of the cavists were French, and while they knew their product, they had a difficult time pairing with the flavors and spice of the food we were cooking. We were explaining a course of scallops, chorizo, lime and sweet corn to our old cavist who responded, “how about pairing it with RUM!” As one blogger pointed out after dining early on at HK, “while the food was generally delicious, the wines were not so great”. It felt like even our good pairings came simply by happenstance.
*Laura and I blow through music like Lindsay Lohan and piles of coke. We have heard the 4+ hours of the Hidden Kitchen playlists so many times that we can time HK nights on which song is currently playing. Because we spend so much time in the kitchen, there is always a podcast or playlist on. Here is what’s on the boombox this week.
