I will be cooking in Wilmington Delaware at Harry’s Savoy Grill at a charity to benefit Share Our Strength. I’m very excited to be working with such a great organization and honored that they chose me. I have been asked cook a dish paired with a Bouchaine Pinot noir. I started to brainstorm about what to pair with such a great wine. The Pinot noir’s nuanced fruit of and the bright acidity led me to create a dish of Confit local heritage suckling pork, dried cherries, Kennett Square mushrooms, cippolini onion, and braised mustard seeds. Who doesn’t love pig and Pinot? I will post pictures and recipes of this dish in the future. Take a look at the information below for more details.
