Show notes from the Producer:

  • Special thanks to the people at Helfrich and their PR firm of Folsom & Associates (cheers Sam!) for providing the Riesling and Gewurztraminer for the show.
  • To find out more about the Alsace region of France, you can watch our previous episode called “Alsace My Love“, or read about it here on Wikipedia.
  • And to explore the wonders of Gewurztraminer, check out our “The Magic of the Lychee” episode.

Recommended food pairings from The Som:

  • What to pair with these intensely flavored and fruity whites?  Let’s start with the Riesling.    Asian foods usually work well.  Red curry with shrimp would be STELLAR.
  • For the Pinot Gris, you should try it with grilled pork tenderloin.  Take note of the weight of the dish and the smokiness that comes out of the wine.
  • And finally, the Gewurztraminer.   Oh…here you go: Chilean sea bass.   I dig this recipe.  Way easy to make, and I like that they mention the role of the fish oils and dense flakiness.  Combine those attributes with the Cajun seasoning and the whole deal served with an Alsace Gewurztraminer, and you got yourself a Helfrich of a dish!
