#Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie with Gruyère-Popover Crust. Ooops, Did I Make You Hungry? #recipe #winepairing
This recipe was created exclusively to pair with the 2008 Syrah from our featured winery, Halter Ranch . The wine is nicely balanced with dark fruits, plum and a hint of vanilla. It can stand up to any hearty dish but is also quite nice without the presence of food. But, really, who wants that?! I'm a big fan of recipes that allow me to use up produce that is about to expire. It is a quandary I find myself in often thanks to my CSA. This is one such recipe, so don't fret over the pie filling ingredients. Just empty the fridge! The crust is so fancy (and tasty!) that your friends will never know you're just trying to offload some old parsnips.
