Mix-and-Match Quiche & Cocktail Pairing

We love local food & unique pairings, so we decided to share with you our method for concocting a mix-and-match Quiche and Cocktail pairing! Without further adieu...

Quiche Recipe | Local's Choice

Ingredients (serves 2-4)

  • 5 large farm fresh eggs

  • 3⁄4 cup whole milk

  • 1 9-inch pie crust

  • 4oz package of goat cheese (or other farm fresh cheese)

  • 2 cups of fresh spinach, kale or chard

  • Locally sourced meat if desired (bacon bits make a great garnish)

McBride Sisters tip: Support local! Shop at your local farmer’s market if possible and if you have the option, choose providers who use sustainable farming practices.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Lightly beat eggs in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add greens and any additional ingredients you so choose (the best local produce options vary depending on your location!).

  4. Pour mixture into pie crust.

  5. Place quiche on cookie sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. Let cool slightly, add goat cheese and garnish.

Voila! We suggest pairing with the McBride Sisters "Rosy Sister" Rosé Cocktail! We may a little biased (since its our very own recipe!) but we love mixing it up on Mother's Day!

Hope you enjoy your Mix-and-Match Quiche & Cocktail Pairing!

Valentine’s Day Food and Wine Pairing | ESSENCE Magazine Feature

What do Valentine’s Day, food, wine and ESSENCE Magazine have in common? They’re some of our favorite things!  For those of you who didn’t catch our feature in the February issue of ESSENCE Magazine, here are our food and wine pairings for you and that special someone this Valentine's Day and beyond. 

Fried Chicken

Seduce your special someone -or enhance your own palate- with perfectly golden fried chicken. Add a glass of sparkling wine. The saltiness of the food harmoniously accentuates the fruit flavors of the champagne.

Oysters

Research suggests that the rich amino acids in shellfish like oysters can have a lingering effect on your libido. Pair your oysters on ice with an eco.love chilled Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. This style of wine is bursting with passion-fruit, nectarine and citrus flavors, while also being a dry wine - not a lot of sugar.  

Figs

Some scholars believe the forbidden fruit Eve gave to Adam was actually a sweet, pulpy fig. Try this succulent treat with an eco.love off-dry Riesling for a nice balance of peaches, florals, ginger, honey, a touch of sugar and great citrus flavors that keep you asking for more! 

Chocolate

The Aztecs were believed to be one of the first to use cocoa beans to increase sexual desire. To turn up the heat, combine chocolate-covered strawberries, pineapple or bananas with a sweet wine, like a Port Wine or a Moscato.
