Holiday Recipe

Posted on

During the Holidays I am reminded of my Italian grandmother and her sisters who always did all the cooking, and in later years my Aunt Mary took over…I couldn’t wait to dig in to those wonderful recipes handed down from generation to generation. They were never written but handed down by actually cooking with the older women of the family. It was always a “little bit” of this and a “little bit” of that added to a dish. No ingredient was ever measured. (except maybe in baking) I have often wondered why they never wrote those recipes down…nonetheless I still have a few in my head and I’m passing this one down to you 😉

Trying to remember some of the recipes that would pair well with my Unoaked Chardonnay I recalled the Fried Baccala Patties. This was not the traditional Baccala dish, although Grandma made that one too for the Christmas Holidays. This was something made up ahead of time and ate when anyone came to visit.

Remember, there’s no ingredient amounts…you can do it…I have confidence in you…

Ingredients you will need:

Salted Cod Fish
eggs
dried breadcrumbs
parmesan cheese (dried)
salt
pepper
parsley (fresh and chopped)
olive oil

Soak the cod-fish in water for a few days in the fridge – changing the water a couple of times a day
Drain water and squeeze water from fish – grind fish with meat grinder
Add your eggs (usually one per pound), breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, parsley
Make into patties about one to one and half inches thick
Fill frying pan with olive oil so that the patties are half-covered
Fry on both sides til golden brown – drain on paper towels

These make a wonderful seafood patty – hopefully you will enjoy them with your favorite white wine…I am thinking Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay for mine…

Enjoy!!!

Giving Back

Posted on Updated on

It’s that time of year again – yep…it’s Christmas time. The season for giving and sharing. Last year Passaggio Wines gave 10% of their December sales to their local shelter G.R.I.P.

G.R.I.P.’s focus is on three core initiatives: providing food, shelter and supportive services to help homeless individuals and families make the transition to self-sufficiency. The mission of the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) is to transform the lives of homeless, hungry, and disenfranchised people.

This year Passaggio Wines will be giving to G.R.I.P. again but also sharing the cost of the wines you purchase.

Passaggio Wines will give free shipping (ground only) on a purchase of two bottles or more for the Christmas Holiday (from Dec 3rd – Dec 31st). Just type the word sharing in the coupon code section on the Passaggio Wines Website. 10% of the purchase will go to G.R.I.P. – help me in sharing with them during this season of giving.

Thanks for sharing
