Wine of the Month

Poggio Vignoso Chianti 2014

"Wine of the people," Poggio Vignoso as it is known at home, is a simple, delightful crowd pleaser. An exceptional, food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with virtually anything. This wine is a remarkable value, it is surprisingly firm, and admirably balanced with intense dried cherries and floral notes. A nice mellow sangiovese for everyday meals, with a silky, crisp, dry-but-fruity medium body. Pairs magnificently with robust dishes such as,
Roasted Lamb with Fig and Lavender Jelly.

Hawaiian Red Alaea Sea Salt

Alaea red sea salt is rich in minerals and iron and gets is stunning color from red alaea clay. Traditionally, Hawaiians use alaea in ceremonies to cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, as well as in healing rituals for medicinal purposes. It has long been prized by native Hawaiians for its spiritual and health benefits. The finest red alaea clay is extracted from veins between layers of lava rock. The clay is purified, refined then bonded with white Hawaiian sea salt. Red Alaea is the traditional Hawaiian table salt used to season and preserve meats and fish. Savor a unique and pleasant flavor while roasting or grilling meats. It is the traditional and authentic seasoning for native Hawaiian dishes such as Kalua Pig, Hawaiian Jerky and Poke.

The Spice of Love

Roasted Lamb with Fig and Lavender Jelly

    • 1/4 C Herbs de Provence Olive Oil, divided
    • 4 garlic cloves, grated
    • 1- 3 1/2 lb boneless leg of lamb 
    • Pinch Sea Salt 
    • fresh ground black pepper 
    • 2 T Herbs de Provence Olive Oil
    • 6 medium shallots, quartered 
    • 1/2 C dried figs, quartered 
    • 1 Tsp honey 
    • 1/4 C Lavender Balsamic
    • 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rub half of the olive oil and the sliced garlic cloves all over the inside of the lamb. Roll up the meat and tie with kitchen string to form roast. Rub the remaining oil all over the roast and set on a rimmed baking sheet.
    • 2. Roast the lamb for about 15 minutes, until it is just starting to brown. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees and roast for 1 hour, until the thickest part registers at 130 degrees for rare. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board and let rest for 25-30 minutes.
    • 3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat the remaining 2 T of olive oil until simmering. Add the shallots, figs, honey and a pinch of salt. Cook on moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, about 7 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the jam is thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Season and let cool.
    • 4. Serve the lamb with the fig and lavender jelly.
