Barbono release at Toogood Winery

Barbono release at Toogood Winery

If you love to try new wines like me, then you won't want to miss this.Toogood Estate Winery is releasing their new Barbono this month.

Toogood's Barbono marries the white pepper spiciness and blackberry-jam fruit of Charbono with the violet, black cherry and minerally aromas of Barbera. Aged in oak to add complexity and depth. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm told that on the palate you will enjoy the bold flavors of blueberry and plum fruit.

Their Barbono is a fusion of 56 percent Barbera and 44 percent Charbono. 

This red wine pairs well with spaghetti, lasagna and most hearty pasta dishes. Especially delightful with lamb shanks, teriyaki chicken or flank steak.

Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon (MLK Day) Jan 14, 15, 16 & 17
Fri-Sat-Sun Jan 21, 22, 23

Recipe: Guacamole Omelette

Recipe: Guacamole Omelette

Earlier this week I was working on a new crepe recipe, which got me thinking about some of my go-to recipes in the breakfast-for-dinner department.  Though there are a couple sandwich & crepe recipes, I realized that most fall into the omelette category.  Suddenly, I was overcome with an intense desire to have a giant omelette, and instantly regretted the fact that I'd just used my only omelette filling-worthy ingredients in the crepes.
