Heirloom Meals Radio:
Riojan WInes

“It’s the logic of the land that defines his dream as a winemaker.”

I didn’t expect to fall in love with Riojan wines – but I have – hook, line and sinker. My conversations with Ana Fabiano, reading her gorgeous book and ultimately testing the wines and pairing  them with recipes have made me a big fan.

What is most attractive is the region itself. Wine-making in Rioja goes dates back nearly 1200 years. The region is steeped in history, tradition and culture, creating a keen sense of place and giving the wines their terroir. Riojans are aligned with the land. Wine-makers are bottling their great greatparents vineyards. Wines are treasured and the rituals are protected and respected. For example, the Muga family tree extends back 500 years. This is pretty amazing when thinking about the US wine industry.

Rioja is 70 miles long by 30 miles wide.The region is still in the hands of the people, unlike the US whose wine industry is in the hands of foreign investors or celebrity money.

Ana shares that there are strict regulations by the Rioja Regulator Board as it governs the aging categories. I paired a wine from each of the aging categories with a recipe and did a three-part interview series with Ana Fabiano.

The wines and recipes:

Chicken, Chorizo and Potatoes paired with Ostata Crianza

Riojan Gran Reserva with Nana's Anchovy Roasted Lamb

Vina Zaco Tempranillo with Pasta Bolognese

Rioja Murvieta Reserva with Mushroom Risotto

Muga Rose with Sauteed Scallops

Rioja Blanco with Fettucine with a Lobster Tomato Basil Cream Sauce

Summer Happenings

Carole is spending the Summer and Fall on Nantucket!

Join her for classes at the Nantucket Culinary Center.

Her next few classes are:

In a Pickle - Pickling is a great way to preserve the harvest. It is simple and provides for great sides and condiments. We’ll do a simple refrigerator method and one hot water bath.
The Heirloom Meals Recipe Project: Storytelling with a side of cooking

Have you ever just wished you asked your mom or grandmother for that special family recipe? Have you been talking about collecting your family recipes together in one place but never do it? Can you recall snippets of your family mealtime? How about your grandmother’s kitchen? The Heirloom Meals Recipe Project will bring your pens ad your pots together, combining writing prompts that will connect the participants immediately with the subject: who they are through the lens of their food memories and how food makes them feel. We will then move into the kitchen and Carole will demonstrate how to reverse engineer a family concoction into a recipe, write the recipe and then we will all eat together and share stories.

There’s Nothing a Homemade Cookie Can’t Solve

Aren’t cookies the ultimate comfort food? In this hands-on class, Carole will share three of her favorite family recipes. A perfect workshop for Mom’s and kids!

Check back here and the Nantucket Culinary Center for more of my classes!
