I'll Have the House Wine

2013-01-25 | 0 comments

Do you have one? Of course you do. You have a house red and a house white. We even have a house bourbon.  

Now you need a house pesto and house vinaigrette. The one that your crew likes the best. Is it sweeter, saltier, a little shallot, a few dried herbs, no cheese? Buy a few canning jars at the grocery store and get to testing – these are very inexpensive condiments to make.

I have posted the House Pesto recipe on the blog. I have also included the ingredients in their own section on the Shopping List. I hope you’ll do it – it takes no time and tastes so fresh in the winter.

A basic vinaigrette ratio is 3-1, oil to vinegar. From there, salt, pepper, Dijon mustard, shallot, lemon zest, Herbes de Provence – all are great additions. This is our House Vinaigrette:

3 tablespoons very good olive oil

1 tablespoon champagne vinegar

1 teaspoon Dijon

1 tablespoon minced shallot

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

From here I can add lemon juice, a pinch of sugar, a little honey – whatever I want.

Next, a house cookie?
