Top 3 Most Romantic Chardonnay Pairings
While we love dining out at restaurants, we think that Valentine's Day is ideal for a romantic dinner at home. We would much rather linger over our meal enjoying our sweetheart's company than brave the restaurant crowds and fixed menus. We have selected our Top 3 Most Romantic Chardonnay Pairings that are perfect for creating at home and pair beautifully with our Damaris Reserve Chardonnay (94 points Robert Parker, Jr.) Lemon Butter Chicken by Damn Delicious You'll swoon over this crisp, tender chicken with the creamiest lemon butter sauce ever. The first part of the recipe is hands on, but after you put the chicken into the oven you have 25-30 minutes of free time. We can think of a number of ways to fill the time... Visit Damn Delicious for the recipe. Pan Seared Scallops with Root Vegetable Mash by Garlic and Zest This exceptionally elegant dish is not only romantic, but also ideal for cooking at home. Most of the prep work can be done in advance, thus, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the company of your Valentine. We suggest paring this dish with our Damaris Reserve Chardonnay for the ultimate Valentine's Day meal. Visit Garlic and Zest for the recipe. Le Lobster Bisque by Boil and Trouble Although Lobster Bisque does require many steps, each step is actually quite simple. The word Bisque comes from the French "bis cuites" which means twice cooked. This beautiful soup is creamy, light but fulfilling. For a romantic Valentine's Dinner, we suggest pairing this decadent bisque with our Damaris Reserve Chardonnay. Add fresh French bread with butter and a simple salad to complete your dinner. Visit Boil and Trouble for the recipe.
