"Slow-Cooked Maple Pork, Slow-Baked Potatoes with Apples and Onions, Sweet and Savory Red Cabbage and Beets"
Slow-Cooked Maple Pork, Slow-Baked Potatoes with Apples and Onions, Sweet and Savory Red Cabbage and Beets
This dish is screaming for an Alsatian White like the Trimbach Riesling to pair with its sweet and sour flavors. Alsatian Rieslings aren't as sweet as German ones and have a bit more body which will match the weight of this dish. Plus, they have all that great Riesling acidity that’ll keep your mouth watering and get you ready for your next bite!
Pork and Fennel Patties with Roasted Fennel, Onion & Potatoes
For these really yummy patties, I would pair a fruit-forward, yet tasty wine. Pinot Noir is a classic pairing here and I'd prefer one from Germany or Austria which has incredible value and have an added level of herbaceous to the beautiful Pinot Noir red berry fruit. One of my favorite German Pinot Noirs is the Becker from the Pfalz region. It is medium-bodied and ripe, but has a lot of earthiness. For something even lighter, I'd go with Stadlmann Pinot Noir from Thermenregion, Austria. Both are great values and couldn't be more delicious with Rachael's Pork and Fennel Patties.

Leftover Lover's Turkey Tetrazzini
You can go either way with this one, by pairing it with a fuller white or a lighter red wine. I love to do a red because of the nutmeg in the dish, which brings out all of these great warming spices. It’s similar to the flavors you might get from oak-aging in a red wine. A lighter red is a great call here because turkey isn't as flavorful as something like beef or even pork. My pick is from the north part of Italy, high up in the Foothills of the Alps, where they grow great Italian grapes, but also excel at Pinot Noir. This wine is so tasty that you definitely won't have any vino-leftovers!

Parsley-Stuffed Chicken with Honey-Butter Sauce and Boiled Potatoes
This dish would be ideal with an American chardonnay. Not the overly-oaky, highly alcoholic stuff that a lot of producers make. But a balanced, fresh and delicious American chardonnay, that has some creaminess to complement the butter, but is still fresh and herbaceous enough to bring out the parsley, would be great. My choice is Lioco Sonoma County Chardonnay ($18). It is fresh and delicious with rejuvenating acidity that will make you want to drink more and more.

Cheesy Chicken in Poblano Sauce
This dish is just screaming for a margarita! Margaritas are relatively simple cocktails consisting of tequila, orange liquer, lime and simple syrup. For the tequila, make sure it is a good, unaged Blanco or Silver tequila as this is the most important ingredient. The orange liquer can be triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Always, always use freshly squeezed fruit juice. Your simple syrup can be a standard one (equal parts sugar and water) or a flavored one where you incorporate your favorite flavoring (try pomegranate juice!). My recipe is below:
Tequila, 2 ounces
Orange Liquer, 1.25 ounces
Lime Juice, .75 ounces
Simple Syrup, .75 ounces
In a chilled mixing glass, combine all of the above ingredients. Add ice and shake hard for 10 seconds. Pour and strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wedge or wheel.
Easy Beef and Bacon Bundles with Worcestershire Gravy
This is a savory flavorful dish that needs a juicy red wine to complement it. I would go with a Cotes du Rhone. These are ripe red wines, generally from the south of the Rhone Valley and when you find one from a great producer, they represent excellent values versus their more prestigious wines. I really love the Cotes du Rhone from Eric Texier and J.L. Chave, but there are many good ones out there.

Pumpkin Cheddar Mac 'n' Cheese
For this dish, I'd pair a Belgian (or Belgian-style spiced beer). The spices will really complement the pumpkin, and beer is the perfect beverage for mac and cheese. For an American beer, I'd try something by The Bruery, Allagash or Ommegang. They all are great brewers that specialize in Belgian-style beer. If you can, find a great small craft Belgian beer - they are the originals and do a great job. If nothing is available from a small brewer, a Hoegaarden would be an excellent pair for this dish as well.

Mozzarella in Carrozza
Lambrusco -Bubbles (whether beer or wine) are my go-to for fried food. Since the froth is so refreshing, I love a sparkling Italian red to go with Rachael's delicious red sauce. It’s more intense and aromatic than a white wine and works well with the tomato flavor. Lambrusco is the perfect pairing here and my favorite is Lini Lambrusco "Labrusca" NV.
