St. Patrick's Day Recipes
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! While today would typically be a day full of lively parades and celebrations, due to the global health issue we’re experiencing, many of us are staying safe and staying in. The gift of this order is that many of us now have extra time to learn new skills, rediscover passions, and have quality time with family over a home-cooked meal.
Since we can’t share a glass with you in the tasting room, we thought we would share some of the recipes we will enjoy at home this week. If you are craving some St. Patrick’s Day bites, scroll down to find our favorite dishes and some Ruby Hill wines you can enjoy with them.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Seasoned brisket and herbed root vegetables come together for this mouthwatering classic. This recipe takes quite a while to prepare, but we’ve got nothing but time. We recommend a wine that has enough acidity to cut through the fattiness of the brisket but won’t overpower the flavors such as our 2017 Ruby Hill Reserve Sauvignon Blanc or 2015 Ruby Hill Intesa.
For the vegetarians in the house, this recipe replaces the classic ground beef or lamb with crumbled vegetable burgers or your vegetarian protein of choice. Pair this dish with a wine that has balanced acidity and a little bit of spice. We like the 2017 Ruby Hill Jewel Collection Chardonnay or 2016 Ruby Hill Reserve Sangiovese.
Don’t let the homemade crust scare you off—it will be worth it. Savory braised beef and vegetables are tucked under a flaky cheddar crust. You want a wine with enough body and spice to match the weight of this dish. If you're thirsty for white wine, we suggest the 2016 Ruby Hill Reserve Chardonnay; red wine lovers will enjoy the 2016 Ruby Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
Still don’t feel like cooking? Many local restaurants are doing their part to stay safe and still provide our town with delicious meals. Check the Downtown Pleasanton Instagram page for information about to-go and delivery options offered by our restaurant partners.
