Easter Brunch at Gadino Cellars

I recently had the extreme pleasure of cooking an Easter Brunch at Gadino Cellars that featured their wines. One of the things that I love about Easter is the promise of spring, new growth and rebirth of all things fresh and good. I prepared some nice savory pastries for an amuse-bouche, along with hot cross buns. An amuse-bouche is a small bite sized hors d’oeuvre, that is similar to an appetizer, but not requested by the guest. Instead an amuse-bouche is served gratis by the chef, and offers a glimpse into his art of cuisine.

The dinner itself consisted of four courses, and all were paired with a spectacular wine. Each course was composed of some spring elements, and each was plated beautifully. My favorite dish was the locally raised lamb sausage from Wits End Farms in Sperryville. It was served with braised cannelloni beans well seasoned with shallots, garlic and sage. It also featured a quick tomato sauce with fresh tomato, shallots, garlic and dried basil. This dish was paired with Gadinos 2012 Delfino Rosso, which is a Bordeaux blend.

This dish was my favorite as the creamy textured, intensely flavored beans paired so well with the lamb sausage. The sausages were tender, flavorful, and well seasoned. Grill marks added a nice visual element. The fresh tomato sauce offered a great pop of color, great flavor and married harmoniously with all elements of the completed dish. Layer upon layer, flavor unfolded in each bite. The wine that was paired with dish was a great marriage of winters fading and springs rebirth.

I so look forward to cooking again for Bill and Aleta at Gadino Cellars, They are such gracious hosts and wonderful friends.

On Being Community Forward

2016 1Mar FaithbrookeMainSt

We love working with Chris and Lindi Jenkins at Faithbrooke Barn and Vineyards. We all share a vision of how cool things can be when people work together. There is a collaborative synergy between our businesses. We both help and support each others causes and convictions without hesitation or reservation.

We recently had the opportunity to work with Chris and Lindi over the holiday season. They approached us with the idea that they would host a Thanksgiving dinner and all would be welcomed. They would provide all of the food we would need to prepare, and we would donate our time and services. After realizing how many people could benefit from this, Chris and Lindi reached out to the community for donations in order to fund this endeavor.  With our communities help they raised enough money to host a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner as well as make a sizeable donation to Choices.

I look forward to many years of partnership with our friends Chris and Lindi. Here at the bakery, we have created a food style that compliments their vision. Their venue is perfect for the relaxed, fun food styling, in the perfect setting of a vineyard that is the epitome of cool. I admire their enthusiasm, energy for life, and their ability to be so gracious and kind to every one they meet. It is a joy to collaborate with them to create a memorable day for young couples and their loved ones.

-Chef Chuck
