Roasted Acorn Squash (stuffed with wild rice and goat’s cheese)
A particular favourite of mine, the Acorn squash offers a slightly more savoury alternative to the Butternut. Stuffed with wild rice, sautéed garlic and leeks and topped off with Goats Cheese. This is a great winter warmer of a recipe and perfect for entertaining the Vegetarian in your life. Now despite this being a winter recipe, a good Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect call for this recipe. My pick would be the superb Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Michelle Richardson, this wine has some wild yeast fermentation that adds body and great depth to this wine.
A classic Italian dish of roasted Chicken breasts in a slow cooked Cherry Tomato and Mascapone (the way we make it) sauce served with white beans. This is the perfect dish to put together after a cold day out walking the Dog. Its quick and easy to make but packs a real punch of flavour. I would serve this with the unbeatable Rosso di Montalcino, Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona, a delightful red from one of the finest producers of the region.
