Weekend Pairing: Barbera Beyond Pizza

April 19th, 2013

OK, we admit it. We sold Barbera short last week. It’s good for so much more than a casual Friday night pizza.

Here are a few ideas: [level-members]

Lentils with Chicken Sausage
From the Food & Wine site, a healthy take on bangers and mash that goes fantastically with Barbera of the more new-world style.

Roasted Turkey with Italian Sausage Stuffing
This delicious recipe from Scott Harvey Wines actually originates from the Food & Wine site. It will pair nicely with just about any nice Barbera, whether the old-world, more taut style or a more extracted bottling.

Rigatoni con Prosciutto Pomodoro
Another recipe from Scott Harvey Wines, this originating from a “Mario Batali Cooks” column.
