Pairing of the Day: October 18-22, 2010
Jason Franey makes the most of the superb mushrooms that grow in the Pacific Northwestfor instance, pairing sautéed chanterelles with roasted salmon and figs in a red wine sauce. Since chanterelles are not always easy to find (and are expensive), oyster mushrooms are an ideal substitute.
Pairing: New world Pinot Noir: 2008 Hirsch Vineyards Lulu Canlis from Sonoma or 2007 Kooyong Massale from Australia.
