Wine Pairing With Superbowl Foods

1

Category : Alcoholic, Drink Reviews, Food News, National, Wine

We found an interesting article this morning in regards to wine pairing withSuperbowl snacks. We figured…why not? Beer is the ‘king’ of game day drinks but not everyone wants all the carbs and calories.  The alternative is wine.

The best thing about these featured wines is that they are all no more than $15! If you’re heading to a  Superbowl party this weekend or to the Blogs4food fortress, you may want to bring a bottle of the good stuff to see how spot on these pairings really are!

Layered taco dip
This is a complex dish, with layers of guacamole, chopped lettuce and tomatoes, corn kernels and spicy-hot taco meat or refried beans. An equally complex wine to help you wash it all down is key. Ditch the Napa Cabs and try a something from a new, up-and-coming Cabernet Sauvignon region: Chile.
Our budget pick: Vina Aquitania 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, Valle del Maipo, Chile

$4,000 Pizza Prank

1

Category : Food News

We’ve all pulled our fair share of pranks over the years but this guy seems like he wanted to attempt to win the gold medal in the  gag department. I understand pulling jokes on friends and family but ordering 178 pizzas for Bob Dylan and his crew after a concert in Massachusettes just doesn’t seem funny to me, or really that bright. I’m still trying to understand where this guy came up with the number 178.

I’m also trying to figure out how the pizza parlor didn’t think something was array when the gentleman ordered that many.  Personally, anything over 5 I would probably call and verify. But 178?  That’s enough for close to 500 people. Who, in their right mind, would think that Bob Dylan would have 500 crew members on his payroll for a concert tour.  Lady Gaga doesn’t even have anything close to that and she’s actually relevant nowadays… Continue Reading

Stefano’s Sicilian Grille, Northampton, PA

Stefano’s Sicilian Grille 

 5364 Nor Bath Boulevard, Northampton, PA 18067  (610) – 262-8760 

  http://www.stefanossiciliangrille.com/

When you are looking to walk into a comfortable Italian restaurant /bar and forget your bad day, Stefano’s Sicilian Grille is that place. The staff is genuinely courteous and this family owned establishment will find you to be part of the family, or the family as part of your attentive staff.   You may find Domenico serving the bar patrons finely mixed martinis or my favorite the “Italian Sunshine”… Clementine Vodka, Triple Sec, Grapefuit Juice (I use Pineapple), and Cranberry Juice.   Or the cousins cooking in the kitchen and serving up the delicious Italian food.  

  

This happens to be a frequent stop for my husband and I as we are friends of the family and the food is phenomenal. Their word-burning pizza is nothing short of incredible. And, their vodka sauce is my all time favorite. Put them together and these guys from time to time will make me my most coveted “Vodka Penne Pizza”… Just ask for it, you will not be sorry.

On this particular occasion, we had the typical Stef’s starter of their fresh, warm, soft Italian bread with a delish and a little spicy, tomato remoulade for dipping.   Forget the laziness of bringing you a small plate of olive oil with a drip of balsamic reduction or vinegar… This dipping sauce they create, trumps any of that.  

  

For our dinner, the husband ordered the “Garlic Parmesan Wings”, I am not a wings freak like he is, but I can tell you that the meat falls off the bone and the wings are crispy yet melt in your mouth.  I, on the other hand, just wanted some fried eggplant and some of their vodka sauce, otherwise I said bring me whatever…  I was delivered the “Eggplant Rollitini”. Fried eggplant tightly wrapped around fresh ricotta and spinach on a bed of soft linguine dressed in the vodka sauce with pancetta swimming in it.  I know that if I was in the position of ordering my last meal, this would be it. I think I may have found a new favorite food group: Fried Eggplant.

 

Stefano’s Sicilian Grille in Northampton is the sister restaurant to Stefano’s Restaurant on 191 in Bethlehem. Both restaurants are run by the family and keep the tight Sicilian ethics of the front man and father, Stefano Lombardo.  But just remember the real boss is wife Patty and when she isn’t there, son Tony.  And, Domenico is always cooking up a masterpiece that’s off the menu or being eye candy for the ladies at the bar.

You can get a real wood burning pizza or fresh made gelato in a variety of flavors that are never the same.  The top of the line chef’s have been working at both establishments for years, Why?… Because they love it.  These well trained chef’s go to far reaches to please their patrons. They always go off the menu.

 

And, if you want to eat there on a weekend, make sure you call ahead.  The Valley loves the Stefano’s restaurants, you’ll notice any time you pop in, well respected business owners, doctors, and lawyers in the Valley are there relaxing and enjoying the fine food. You can get away with incognito casual wear or donning your best Hugo Boss or Elie Tahari suits right after work. Either way, you’ll fit right in.

DeLorenzo’s-Easton, PA

Category : Easton, Pennsylvania, The Lehigh Valley

 

     Marlene, Ernie, Cheryl, and the Family were so gracious and welcoming when we arrived for dinner at deLorenzo’s. I’m not sure if you know this or not, but Sam Malone of Cat Country 96.1 goes there often, and he said the first time he ever walked into deLorenzo’s, it reminded him of special holidays at his grandmother’s house.  It was kind of a melting pot of CAT Country 96 staff the night we dined at deLerenzo’s as George King and his lovely wife Linda joined my wife  and I. We actually JUST MISSED Sam Malone and his family by only 15 minutes!

     The drink menu at deLorenzo’s is extensive and they have numerous nightly specialty drinks. Marlene calls the drink menu, ‘The Goodie Book’! (And yes it is!) Their wine selection is also extensive. We had a virtual buffet of appetizers. The Italian Wedding Soup is made fresh every morning and the little Italian meatballs they roll for the soup are so cute…and delicious.  We shared a half Margherita Pizza and a half Import Pizza with artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, prosciutto and goat cheese!  deLorenzo’s pizzas are prepared on a grill and the smokiness and crispiness of them makes them one of a kind!  George King was all about the Mozzarella Corozza and I had to agree with him! Kristy O’Brian, our WLEV/CAT Country traffic gal, has also had them and they are her favorite I have since learned. Deep fried bread and mozzarella with tomato sauce and ricotta, caper mix? Yes please! We all then shared Calamari deLorenzo, which comes sautéed or fried in a SPICY lemon butter sauce with hot peppers and capers.


     For dinner, George, Linda, my wife and I continued with Marlene’s fantastic homemade cooking. My wife had an oversized portion of Mama’s Lasagna which Mama makes EVERY morning from scratch at deLorenzo’s. I FINALLY discovered what true Sunday Gravy is! I’ve heard Sam talk about it a lot and it was amazing. George and Marlene had a little learning session for me right at the table and George also had the Gravy.  I will never call “Gravy”, sauce again! Meatball, sausage, braciole, and pork bones all make up this dish and it’s thick, full of flavors, and nothing even close to a ‘sauce’! It’s Gravy!  Linda enjoyed deLorenzo’s homemade Cheese Ravioli and anything with cheese from deLorenzo’s is top notch!

     Dessert was fabulous! The Cannolis and Tiramisu are homemade daily and simply melt in your mouth. I had “Italian” Cheesecake for the first time and I like it better than regular cheesecake. Go figure!  The Puff Pastry we all enjoyed also, especially with that Hazelnut Custard.


     All in all deLorenzo’s was fantastic and they really do make you feel like you’re walking right into their home to enjoy a homemade dinner with their family. They even have dishes named after their children and family members and Chicken Briana sounds like perfection! (I’m told it’s a ‘sassy’ dish, according to Cheryl.)

     Thank you for opening up your home to the Cat Crew and of course the Gourmet Guy.  Please do visit them for lunch or dinner and look into dates when they have live music and be sure to see J.T. Carter who is the very famous singer who sang “Sixteen Candles” and is the cousin of Gladys Knight. He performs every other weekend at deLorenzo’s and is very talented and such a sweet guy!  Thanks Mama!
