This one was hard to judge! All of the pairings sounded great, which made it difficult for me to decide. Since I had a weekend filled with Easter lamb – including barbecued lamb chops, braised lamb ribs and a marinated and butterflied leg of lamb (my family has never heard the saying “too much of [...]
It’s been awhile since I have sent out a Foodie-find update, but having spent the weekend before last in Quebec City I thought I would share my find with you. While eating and drinking my way through the Quebec City wine show, I met Isabel Mihura, proprietress of La Ferme Basque de Carlevoix who was [...]
