FOOD
MA T CH to MEATS
While the best matches for cabernet sauvignon-namely steaks,
brisket and other hardy cuts of beef-can easily withstand the
rigors of open-flame cooking, chardonnay-friendly proteins
need more careful handling. Delicate cuts tend to fall apart on
the grill, and their subtle flavors can be overwhelmed by smoke
and char. Therefore, it's best to opt for lean white meats, such
as chicken and pork, along with firm varieties of seafood, such
as cod, salmon and lobster.
For pork and chicken, Knoll prefers to make a SonomaMediterranean
Rub (visit jordanwinery.com/recipes) that
matches beautifully with Jordan Chardonnay. The combination
features preserved lemon purée, Jordan Extra Virgin Olive Oil,
dried Greek oregano, dried mint, cumin, sumac and citric acid.

GO EAS Y on the PEPPER
There are more than 600 different varieties of pepper in the
world, and many of them play the role of villain in chardonnay
food pairings. " The excessive heat found in black pepper and
most chilis will throw chardonnay off-balance, " Knoll says. " It
elevates the alcohol in the wine and overpowers any subtle fruit
notes and aromas in the wine. "
Aleppo pepper flakes, however, offer a mild flavor that
is almost fruity, without the strong heat. " Unless the wine
already has sugar or spice, like a riesling, then the fruit is the
only aspect of the chili you are trying to bring into the pairing.
That's why I love Aleppo. It brings the fruit, not the heat. "
fish like a kajiki or halibut-Knoll makes a quick-cure mixture
(see page 51) that includes Meyer lemon, sugar, salt, fresh
thyme, lemongrass and black pepper. After applying the rub
and placing basil leaves and lemon slices onto the fish, he
wraps it tightly in plastic wrap and puts it in the refrigerator to
marinate. The citrus helps firm up the fish, while the salt and
sugar draw out some of the water, concentrating the flavor and
giving the fish an attractive shine and translucency. " It's going
to look pretty and taste even better, " Knoll says.
