Joining us for #SundaySupper this week is Cristina Ferrare!

Big Bowl of LoveCristina Ferrare is joining us this week as we continue to bring back Sunday Supper around the family table! The movement that has gained nationwide attention is celebrating dishes from Cristina’s fifth cookbook Big Bowl of Love.  The meals have been prepared by dedicated food bloggers who are as passionate about food as I am about wine.  My job, is to make sure no one goes thirsty! Here are the featured dishes and the wines to pair with them. Please join us on Twitter and Pinterest Sunday, May 20th beginning 3pm Eastern and let us know what’s cookin’ in your house!

Pinot Noir is such a food friendly wine but it can be expensive, try Calera Central Coast with perfume aromas with deep plum and dark fruit flavors. A superbly made wine for about $24

Albariño, from the western seashore of Spain is my go to wine for seafood and Asian dishes. Try to find Laxas for about $15 click here for full review.

I love a California Chardonnay with earthy foods like pesto! Try to find Napa Cellars Chardonnay for about $22. Check out the full review here.

From the famous French wine producer E. Guigal; their Côtes du Rhône blanc is a welcome pairing for these dishes. This mostly Viognier blended wine has floral aromas that lead to a mineral mouth-feel and a dry finish. A quality wine for about $10

Cabernet Sauvignon is such a chocolate friendly wine. Try to find BR Cohn Silver Label for about $17, rich full berry flavors with a hint of vanilla, it’s one of my favorites!

Sparkling wines are often served as an apéritif, but I love them with desserts. Lunetta Prosecco from Cavit has fresh fruit aromas and a touch of lemon flavor with a clean and crisp finish. $12

Bon Appétit!

  21. As far as I am concerned… your wine pairings are the best part of #SundaySupper… thank you Eileen!

  22. I was looking at the Chicken Picatta recipe this morning via twitter. Now I know which wine to serve! Thanks, Eileen

    • Hi Trish! I’m glad you stopped by today! Let me know which Cotes du Rhone wine you found, and how it goes with the Chicken Picatta. The pricing on Cotes du Rhones are fabulous now, grab them while they are still very reasonable! Cheers!

  23. Prosecco sounds perfect w/ the strawberry shortcake! I learn so much reading your posts – more than once have I stood in front of a wine display wondering which one would go best w/ what we were having.

    • Thank you Sofie! Try to remember the different wines you’ve tasted, really remember the flavors and aromas, then imagine the flavors of the dish you’ll be making and wine pairing becomes so much easier. Also, when in doubt, open 2 bottles! We do that alot and discuss which pairs better, then save the other one for the next evening (if it makes it to the next day that is!!) Cheers!

    Thank you for the beautiful wine selections! I love reading your blog. I always learn something!

    • Thank You!! I chose Pinot Noir for your Spaghetti and Meatballs as a bit of a departure to the ‘go to Chianti’ with most Italian dishes. I do like a Chianti, but I adore Pinot Noir!

  25. Renee Dobbs says:

    Thank you so much Eileen for your wonderful wine pairings! I can always count on you for the best suggestions and insight into wine and food. I am so glad you are a part of #SundaySupper.

    • Renee, I thought the most interesting of the pairings was the Risottos. They may seem like the same dish, but with the addition of seafood in one and veggies in another we can find two entirely different wines to pair with them.

  26. Tom Riley says:

    Eileen, great diversity of wine suggestions. Way to pass along some very resourceful leads. This is what a wine blog should do — lead, educate, encourage, and enable. Good one!

    • Thanks Tom, I thought it would be a good idea to explain why I chose the wines I did. As we know there isn’t only 1 correct answer to any wine & food pairing, but experimenting is the fun part.Cheers!

I would love to know your thoughts on this post!
