Food 101

Hey all, this Blog is designed with sharing my food passion in mind. I plan on sending weekly recipe's and a few new cooking ideas for every eater, Vegetarians and Vegans included. The first wine & recipe I want to share (below) since we are getting VERY close to another HOT Texas summer, it's all about refreshing food and cocktails, in my house we have started to stock up on Rose' wines.  This is the time of year (more early may to july) to grab some great dry Rose' wines.  Lauren and I love an Argentinean Malbec Rose' called "Finca El Origen" you can find it at your local H-E-B it is refreshing, dry, and full of cranberry and strawberry notes.  Goes great with the salad below.

Oro Blanco Salad: "Grapefruit Salad"
If You can find Oro Blanco (a spanish grapefruit that is less acidic than normal grapefruits) use it, may be hard to come by in Texas though, so just use any Texas "Ruby Red variety"  grapefruit.

1 Oro Blanco or Ruby Red grapefruit (Peeled and segmented)
1/2 cup Arugula
1/2 cup thinly sliced fennel
1/2 cup chopped Endive or Radicchio 
Shaved Pecorino Romano Cheese (Sheep milk cheese)
Fresh lemon Juice and olive oil for dressing
and cracked black pepper and salt to taste.

Enjoy! Great spring/summer salad!!

Stay tuned for more recipe's!!
