Penney’s Picks: Perfect Picnic Pairings

Written By Penny S. Adams, Winemaker and Viticulturist for Wedding Oak Winery

This gorgeous spring weather in Texas calls for a picnic. Why wait for Memorial Day when you can pack a basket of delicious food and Texas wine to drink with it. Here are three food friendly wines that will feel right at home on a picnic blanket, paired with excellent recipes from the United Tastes of Texas cookbook by Jessica Dupuy.

2015 Rose de Dolcetto

There is no better wine to serve at a picnic than a dry rosé. The crisp, acidic qualities of rosé makes it versatile and the perfect match with a wide range of flavors in picnic dishes. Our rosé is made with Dolcetto grapes grown in the Diamante Doble Vineyard in Tokio, Texas. It is a party in a bottle with fresh scents of red berry fruit with peppery undertones. It has vibrant flavors of raspberry, cranberry and fresh-picked strawberry with a touch of lemon zest.  I recommend pairing it with a hearty potato salad.

Hill Country Potato Salad (Page 14 of United Tastes of Texas)

-        2 ½ lb. medium-size baby Yukon gold potatoes

-        2 tsp. table salt

-        6 center-cut bacon slices

-        4 large hard-cooked eggs, peeled and diced

-        ¾ cup chopped celery

-        ½ cup chopped green onions

-        ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

-        1 (4-oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained

-        2 Tbsp. coarse-grained mustard

-        ½ cup diced dill pickles (optional)

  1. Bring potatoes, salt, and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until tender, drain and rinse under cold water 1 minute. Drain well.
  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat 8 minutes or until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 Tsbsp. Drippings. Crumble bacon.
  3. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Combine potatoes, bacon, reserved 2 Tbsp. warm drippings, eggs, next 5 ingredients, and pickles, if desired, in a large bowl. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.

2015 Baby’s Breath

A chilled, bright white wine is always a fantastic choice for a picnic. Our Baby’s Breath is a festive wine that is perfect on a sunny day. And, it is packaged in a twist top, so no corkscrew is necessary. It has wonderful floral aromas from Riesling grown in the Texas High Plains, and rich honeyed pear flavors from the Roussanne grape. It is complex without being fussy with fresh citrus, candied lemon peel, baked apples with cinnamon, and firm minerals with a clean finish. It has just a hint of sweetness balanced with a slight tartness that pairs gorgeously with fried chicken.

Honey-friend Chicken with White Wine Cream Sauce (Page 84 of United Tastes of Texas)

-        ¾ cup honey

-        1 ½ Tbsp. apple cider vinegar or Champagne vinegar

-        1 ½ Tbsp. fresh orange juice

-        1 ½ tsp. fresh lemon juice

-        2 (3-lb.) cut-up whole chickens

-        ¾ cup all-purpose flour

-        2 large eggs

-        ¼ cup buttermilk

-        Vegetable or corn oil

-        ½ cup white wine (get an extra bottle of Baby’s Breath)

-        ½ cup chicken broth

-        1 cup heavy cream

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large glass or ceramic bowl; add chicken. Cover and chill 4 to 8 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade; drain on paper towels. Pour marinade through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, reserving 2 Tbsp. marinade. Discard remaining marinade.
  3. Place flour in a shallow dish. Whisk eggs with buttermilk in a separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg mixture; dredge in flour, shaking off excess.
  4. Pour oil to depth of 1 inch into a large cast-iron skillet; heat to 275 F. Fry chicken, in batches, turning occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes or until evenly browned and done. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste while hot.
  5. Remove and discard oil from skillet. Reserving drippings in skillet. Add wine, and cook 2 minutes, stirring to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add broth, and simmer 8 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Add cream and reserved 2 Tbsp. marinade. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 6 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats a spoon.
  6. Pour sauce through a wire-mesh strainer into a serving bowl. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve with fried chicken. 

2015 Texedo Red

For you red wine lovers, we have a fantastic wine to sip under the Texas sky. Texedo Red made with a blend of Dolcetto, Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Tannat grapes is a lush wine full of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, plum and concentrated dried berries mingled with tobacco and vanilla. It has a velvety mouth feel with just a touch of sweetness wrapped around a core of grippy tannins. Serve it lightly chilled with a variety of spicy and tangy dishes. I love it with tortilla chips and Texas Caviar.

Texas Caviar (Page 204 of United Tastes of Texas)

-        2 (15-oz.) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed

-        2 plum tomatoes, diced

-        2 green onions, chopped

-        1 cup fresh corn kernels (2 ears)

-        ½ cup chopped red bell pepper

-        ½ cup Salsa Fresca

-        ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

-        2 garlic cloves, minced

-        1 tsp. table salt

Stir together all ingredients in a serving bowl. Cover and chill, stirring occasionally, 8 hours.

Erind Halilaj Named Executive Chef of New Waterloo’s Il Brutto

Halilaj will oversee culinary operations for the upcoming Italian restaurant, bar & sandwich shop

New Waterloo is excited to announce Erind Halilaj, formerly of Obicà Mozzarella Bar, as the executive chef of Il Brutto, the group’s neighborhood Italian restaurant, bar and sandwich shop opening in East Austin later this summer.

Born in Albania and raised in Italy, Halilaj pursued a culinary career after receiving a degree in economics and tourism services management. In Milan, he held prominent positions at various 5-star luxury hotels, including chef de partie at Hotel Principe di Savoia, sous chef at AC Hotel Marriott Milano, and chef tournant at Excelsior Hotel Gallia. Halilaj worked at several other hotels and restaurants in Italy, including as executive chef of private club Canottieri Restaurant, before an opportunity with JW Marriott brought him to Florida in 2014.

After making the move to New York City that same year, Halilaj was named executive chef of Obicà Mozzarella Bar, then promoted to its corporate chef within his first year. There, he was charged with concepting menus, overseeing multiple kitchens, developing training programs, and opening Obicà locations worldwide. He joined New Waterloo as Executive Chef of Il Brutto and its counterpart, a 1,600-sq-ft sandwich shop, in spring 2017.

“Italian cuisine is rooted in simplicity: straightforward ingredients of the highest quality used in precise ways,” says New Waterloo Partner Delfo Trombetta. “Having grown up in Italy, Erind has a deep-rooted passion for the ingredients and techniques at the core of all Italian cuisine. We are lucky to have him join the Il Brutto team.”

Located in East Austin, Il Brutto will offer lunch, brunch and dinner in a 5,000-square-foot restaurant that features a large, open kitchen, a separate bar and lounge, a private dining room, and shaded patio seating surrounding a live oak tree. Helmed by Halilaj, Il Brutto will offer a menu of simple, well-executed Italian classics, including fresh antipasti, daily housemade pastas, and pizzas baked in the restaurant’s Neapolitan wood-burning oven.

“There’s always a story behind an Italian dish,” says Halilaj. “A meal is not just about the food, but about the whole experience. Il Brutto will be a high-quality Italian restaurant that’s casual, convivial and warm—just like East Austin.”

Il Brutto and the yet-to-be-named sandwich shop are slated to open in East Austin late summer 2017. They are the latest additions to New Waterloo’s diverse culinary portfolio, which includes La Condesa, Sway, Hotel Ella, South Congress Hotel and Pao.

After spending some time at the Michelin-starred kaiseki/sushi bar, Urasawa, in Los Angeles, Tatsu decided to return to Austin in the pursuit of introducing authentic Japanese ramen to Texas. With the help of friends and family, Ramen Tatsu-Ya became a reality and soon after opening, the shop quickly became a local sensation boasting national accolades, including Bon Appetit’s “Top 50 Best Restaurants.” Ramen Tatsu-Ya currently has three locations overall, with two in Austin and a Houston location that opened February 2017.

History of Mint Julep

As Published by Cocktail Times (www.CocktailTimes.com)

No Kentucky Derby would be complete without the venerable Mint Julep on the first Saturday in May. According to the Derby Museum, Mint Julep became Churchill Downs’ signature drink in 1938 when they started to serve the drink in souvenir glasses for 75 cents a drink. Today Kentucky Derby serves more than 80,000 juleps over the two-day event. Mint Julep first appeared in print in 1803 described as a “dram of spirituous liquor that has mint in it, taken by Virginians in the morning.” Some historians say Mint Julep was born in the early 1700s somewhere in east coast. First Mint Juleps weren’t perhaps mixed with Bourbon, rather rye whiskey or rum or other available spirits. Chris Morris from Woodford Reserve Bourbon says “Centuries ago, there was an Arabic drink called julab, made with water and rose petals. The beverage had a delicate and refreshing scent that people thought would instantly enhance the quality of their lives.” When the julab was introduced to the Mediterranean region, the native population replaced the rose petals with mint, a plant indigenous to the area. The Mint Julep, as it was now called, grew in popularity throughout Europe. Mint Julep’s popularity came to rest in the agricultural regions of the east and southeast, where farmers awakened at dawn. Morris says the julep was originally a morning drink as the spirited equivalent of coffee in today’s society. “One sip and Pow! The farmers were ready to face the long day.” The main ingredient of the Mint Julep is Bourbon Whiskey. “The biggest change for the julep was the addition of American whiskey to the recipe,” says Morris. “The julep was quickly transformed into a mixture of water, sugar, mint leaves, and good American whiskey.” For an extensive reading of Mint Julep, there’s a great small book titled The Kentucky Mint Julep written by Joe Nickell.  This book covers everything you want to know about the Derby’s official drink, from various Mint Julep recipes to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Twin Liquors in Austin, Texas Share’s It’s Recipe Official drink of the Kentucky Derby over which many have passionately debated in its formulation. You will see many variations, right and wrong. Whatever your technique though, the ingredients remain the same.

  • .5oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 Sprigs of Mint
  • 2oz Bourbon

Gently bruise one sprig of mint in bottom of glass with simple syrup. Add 1oz of bourbon and fill glass with crushed ice. Stir until glass is frosty. Add remainder of bourbon to glass and fill with crushed ice. Stir until frosty. Spank remaining spring of mint and place in glass. Serve with straw.

Spice Up Spring Cleaning

While you’re making this year’s spring cleaning chore list, remember that a true deep clean means decluttering your kitchen from inside the cabinets out.

“The idea of spring cleaning is especially relevant to the spice rack,” said Mark Garcia, chef at McCormickKitchens. “Many people keep the same herbs and spices in their cabinet for years, not realizing that flavor and aroma tend to fade over time.”

He offers the following tips for ensuring your herbs and spices are at their freshest and ready to complement the season’s signature flavors:

  • Sight: Check that the colors of your spices and herbs are bright and vibrant. If the color has faded, so has the flavor.
  • Aroma: Rub or crush the spice or herb in your hand. If the aroma is weak, it is time to replace it.
  • Taste: Give the herb or spice a taste test. If it lacks flavor, it is past its prime.

To ensure you’re cooking with the freshest flavor, check your spice’s “best by” date and keep these shelf life guidelines in mind:

  • Ground spices: 2-3 years
  • Whole spices: 3-4 years
  • Seasoning blends: 1-2 years
  • Herbs: 1-3 years

When you shop to replace discarded spices, keep these storage tips in mind:

  • Keep spices and herbs away from heat, moisture and direct sunlight.
  • Avoid storing spices and herbs over the stove, dishwasher or sink, or near a window.
  • Members of the red pepper family, including paprika and chili powder, will retain their color and remain fresher when stored in the refrigerator.

While putting your spices to use, follow these simple guidelines:

  • Try not to sprinkle spices and herbs directly from the bottle into a steaming pot. Repeated exposure to heat and moisture can hasten flavor loss and could result in caking. Instead, measure them into a cup, measuring spoon or bowl and then add them.
  • Be sure to use a completely dry measuring spoon when dipping it into a spice or herb.
  • Replace bottle lids tightly immediately after use.

While cleaning out the cupboards, you may encounter forgotten spices or those that are approaching their “best by” dates and need to be used. That’s the perfect excuse to experiment with new recipes or to reward your hard work with a sweet treat.

From the Vineyard: Managing Winegrape Growth in Unpredictable Spring Weather

By Penny S. Adams, winemaker and viticulturist for Wedding Oak Winery

You know that sickening feeling you get when a storm is barreling down on you, and your car is left out in the elements? You just know that it is going to be pummeled by hail, resulting in a costly trip to the body shop.

Now imagine how you would feel if your entire livelihood was in the path of that same storm? That is exactly the situation Texas winemakers face each spring when extreme weather threatens the fresh growth of grape vines left helpless to the elements in the vineyard. If not a late frost, it is hail, severe winds, or a deluge of flooding rain that threaten our vines.

2017 Spring Planting at Wildseed Farm Vineyard

2017 Spring Planting at Wildseed Farm Vineyard

To make matters a bit more precarious than usual, the warmer than average January temperatures led to the growing season starting out much earlier than normal in vineyards across the state. Having bud break this early always puts growers on edge. The delicate buds are exposed to the risk of late spring frost that can decimate a crop. Additionally, spring storms rife with hail can be particularly devastating in young vineyards where vine trunks and cordons are developing. The earlier in the season when a hail event occurs, the more catastrophic it can be, as the more exposed newly developing buds are likely to be damaged.

Most varieties in the Hill Country are at bloom in their phenological calendar now, and factors like extreme rainfall and wind during this time can impact fruit set, and ultimately yield. In most grape variety blocks, we are in growth phases that range from pre-bloom to just post fruit-set. We are now in mid-season, and the fruit is better protected by larger leaf area acting as umbrellas of sorts.

2017 Spring Growth in High Valley Vineyard

2017 Spring Growth in High Valley Vineyard

In spite of the risks, the growing season is going well so far. Several storms have moved through our Hill Country vineyards recently causing limited hail damage to upper canopies and wind damage to canes. I’ve seen limited damage to Viognier clusters that are just beyond fruit set, so I expect no impact on yield. The storms last week fell in line with our normal “Easter Freeze” events that often plague Texas winegrape production. Several contracted vineyards in the Texas High Plains suffered severe loss of fruit for this season, but fortunately most have been spared. 

Spring Planting and Vineyard Management

We continue to plant to vineyard acreage, and diligently maintain our existing vineyards. It’s a busy time in the vineyards.

We have completed spring planting of seventeen acres in our various contracted Hill Country vineyards with Viognier, Trebbiano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Dolcetto, Graciano, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Tannat to bolster our production levels for our growing markets. I’m particularly excited about the Graciano and Carignan plantings because these varieties will contribute important complexities to our lineup, especially in our Rioja-style red wines. The nice spring rainfall created a little bit of a dance of sorts regarding getting into the vineyards to plant.

2017 Spring Growth in High Valley Vineyard

2017 Spring Growth in High Valley Vineyard

In vineyards planted last year, we are training young vines, which includes developing trunks, cordons and spurs, with frequent vineyard passes during the vines “grand period of growth.” During this approximately six-week period of rapid vine growth, they can grow more than an inch per day. As you can probably guess these tender new shoots are especially vulnerable to damage during this critical vine development stage. If damaged by weather, they may need to be retrained from the ground up: a devastating additional expense for vineyard owners.

In our older vineyards we are finishing up shoot removal along the cordons, opening up the canopies to more sunlight and allowing leaves to dry after spring rain. This also allows fungicide sprays to better penetrate the canopies and protect the fruit from the many fungal pressures we have here in the Hill Country during this critical time of the season.

With the early bud break, I predict we will have a slightly earlier harvest here in our Hill Country varieties, particularly Viognier. Despite the vines jumping out of their dormancy early this season, and the minor weather impacts on fruit crop, this 2017 vintage is looking better than ever!
