Recipe News: Whip up a three-course feast to pair with the perfect rosé

Drinking your way through a three-course meal often requires multiple types of wine and as many glasses -- not exactly feasible for a picnic. It's why rosé is a natural choice for an outdoor, transportable meal. The wine's crispness and acidity pair well with lighter salads, but it's made from red grapes, so it can stand up to heartier dishes like poultry, fish and pork. The domestic rosés featured in The Chronicle's Wine Selections today exhibit a vast range of characteristics. Chances are, you'll find a pink to match whatever turns up in the picnic basket.

Includes recipes for:


  • Farro Nicoise Salad

  • Barbecued Chicken Salad Sandwiches

  • Berry & Melon Salad with Honey Tarragon Dressing

Wine News: White wine, red meat?

"Red wine with red meat, white wine with white meat" may be one of the most widely recognized rules of thumb in wine-and-food matching. But we find all sorts of delicious exceptions to the white-meat rule, including such glorious combinations as Pinot Noir with wild salmon or a mature Bordeaux with roast chicken. How about breaking the rules in the other direction, though? For me, at least, "white wine with red meat" isn't intuitively appealing. Naturally, ever the skeptic, I couldn't resist giving it a try. With a couple of nice grass-fed filet mignons in hand and a 2005 Petit Chablis from Jean-Marc Brocard up for tasting, the stage was set. I pan-seared the steaks in olive oil and garlic to a perfect medium-rare ... chilled the white wine just to cellar temperature and uncorked, er, unscrewed the cap ... and ... meh! In fairness, the combination wasn't awful. The beefy, earthy character of the grass-fed steak didn't actually war with the appley, tart wine. But the flavors didn't really create a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts synergy as the best food-and-wine pairings do. The wine washed down the steak, but you could do that with iced tea or a Coke. There was nothing wrong with the wine: I re-capped the bottle and stuck it in the fridge to finish another day. We finished the steak with a splendid California Syrah (Domaine de la Terre Rouge 2003 "Ascent" from the Sierra Foothills) that worked with the beef as a fine red wine should. Its dark fruit and nuances of earth, "grilled meat," firm tannins and chocolatey oak played a natural counterpoint to the flavor and texture of the steaks. Red wine and red meat: Makes sense to me.

Recipe News: Flay's Favorite Hot Dog Recipes

Every year, the average American eats 60 hot dogs, prepared in all sorts of different ways.

As Bobby Flay makes his way around the country, The Early Show's celebrity chef collects the recipes he likes best from the foods he samples — and that includes hot dogs.

The taste of the beloved comfort food varies widely by region and personal preference, as do the toppings on the sandwich. The flavor of the sausage itself can resemble a range of similar meat products from bologna on the bland side to cooked salami in the spicier varieties. Hot dogs are traditionally made from beef, pork or a combination of those meats.

Includes recipes for:


  • Texas Dogs

  • Grilled Hot Sausage with Onion Sauce and Roasted Red Pepper Relish

  • Grilled Sausage

Recipe News: Pizza recipes

ot only is it time to upgrade and experiment with new equipment but add zip to your toppings as well. Instead of using pre-shredded cheese and pepperoni, try a variety of authentic Italian cheeses, including fresh mozzarella, fontina and Taleggio, and use flavorful meats, including sausage, pancetta and prosciutto.

If you don't feel like investing in a new baking pan, use a pizza stone or other large cast-iron skillet.

Includes recipe for:


  • Arugula, Goat Cheese and Walnut Pizza

Recipe News: Woman makes her own dog food

The recent rash of national pet food recalls has sparked the business spirit of a rural Linton woman who now finds herself spending several hours weekly in the kitchen making meals and treats for her family and two dogs. Deb McEnery, who lives west of Linton, has also launched her own Web site that shares with subscribers her tips and recipes for home-prepared pet food meals, diet plans, and snacks. "In light of the recent pet food recalls, it occurred to me that we need to make changes in the way we care for our pets," she said. "When I started getting the e-mails (about the recalls) I said what am I going to do. This is a big thing. This is not a little thing anymore." The recalls played a major part in her decision to cook for her pets exclusively. "The one organic dog food company I found - Blue Buffalo - they got recalled two days ago," she noted. McEnery points out that a look back in history shows that dogs have for a long time shared food fare with their keepers.
