Think warm Provence days, outdoor dining sipping cool refreshing Rosé.

October 21, 2022

In his kitchen in Brisbane, Gavin Sutherland @another_food_blogger, cooks up a storm as he prepares a Brown Butter, Maple and Chili Glaze, which he coats over freshly caught salmon.  The creaminess of the butter, along with the sweetness from the maple syrup, is balanced with just the right amount of spice to make this one tasty dish.

He partners the salmon with a crispy fennel salad.

There is freshness on the first mouth from this mixture of fennel, apple, lemon juice and parsley, which continues throughout the meal, ideal for warmer days.

These dishes are paired to perfection with Domaine de Fontenille Rosé.  With its subtle fruit and contemporary elegance, this dry style of Rose is a superb example of Southern France and pairs well with seafood.

Once again, the recipe is included, so you can create this pairing to enjoy.
