Food & Wine Pairing: Hunter’s Chicken and Nero d’Avola

May 10th, 2013

Wine Spectator just landed in our mailbox – we’ll cover it in this coming week’s What They’re Reading post – but upon flipping to the back of the book we found this pairing from Chef Hugh Acheson of Athens, GA. [level-members]

He’s updated a classic southern recipe by “gently … lightening … and finding local ingredients.” So it’s not quite the old classic you might remember. Then again, the Nero d’Avola that WS is pairing isn’t exactly old-fashioned either. (COS Nero d’Avola Sicilia 2009.)

The WS recipe is available only with a subscription to the magazine, so here are a few other recipe options.

Here’s to the beauty of the south – in the US and in Italy! [/level-members]
