Being a wine-lover, I was ecstatic when I was approached by Bordeaux Wines and Harlem EatUp! for a collaboration. Harlem EatUp! is a festival dedicated to showcasing the culture of Harlem, and I was given the task of creating a Harlem soul food inspired dish that pairs with Bordeaux Wines. People don't think of Bordeaux wines as being affordable, but they in fact are, and add an elegant touch to any meal.
I started our meal with a simple spring salad that paired perfectly with a glass of fruity Rosé. For the entree, I came up with a recipe for crispy fried chicken coated in a Sriracha-honey glaze. Talk about comfort food! The dish went great with a glass of floral, honey scented Sauternes wine. We finished off the meal with a plate of beautiful cheeses and fresh fruits, alongside a glass of a spicy red blend. Truly heavenly!
