Pairing of the Day: May 16-20, 2011
At The Modern in New York City, chef Gabriel Kreuther makes gnocchi using fromage blanc, a fresh French cheese that creates a light texture and lovely tang; sour cream is a fine replacement. Snails add an earthy flavor to the dish (though the recipe is also delicious without them).
Pairing: Juicy Pinot Noir: 2009 Babcock Rita's Earth.
