POULET A LA CRÈME
Inspired by my French dad's signature recipe, this pasta is simplicity at its finest. Creamy and rich enough to be a billionaire, the full flavor of the crème fraîche is on display here.
ARUGULA & PEAR SALAD
Elegant and crisp, this arugula and pear salad balances textures and flavors to make for a perfect start to a meal.
Napa Valley, California
Go for a full bodied white wine to stand up to the richness of the dish. Chardonnay with a good acid backbone will go a long way with how rich this dish is. Up to you if you want something oaked, but suggest finding a wine somewhere in the middle. White Burgundy is a no brainer, but something from the Napa Valley should do the trick!
Chickens were first domesticated in China in 6,000 B.C., almost 8,000 years ago!
Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape in the world! It's used heavily in Champagne and other sparklings, as well as to make wines with the same name on almost every continent.
