One of the funniest parts of sharing our wines with visitors at the recent Taste of Massachusetts Wine Festival was the brainstorming on pairing our wines with food. The Forest Gold maple wine was a topic of hot discussion, which, frankly, made me hungry. There were lots of good suggestions, such as cheesecake (beside, on top, and inside), over ice cream, in BBQ sauce, but the one I had to try as soon as we got home was making a glaze for grilled salmon.
Last night I discovered that my local Market Basket grocery store had some awesome salmon filets so I came home, set up the food lab in the kitchen, and went to work experimenting.
The results….well, taste for yourself!
