Korean-Style Bulgogi Burgers

This was Inspired by Korean beef bulgogi, where thin slices of beef are marinated and grilled on the BBQ – hooked on gochujang, the spicy paste used in Korean cooking. It makes its appearance throughout this recipe, starting with the fiery kick it gives bacon jam (this stuff is to die for). Gochujang makes its next appearance in the light batter that encases the fried shallots that are a staple in Korean cooking (bawang goreng). It shows up again to lend an Asian kick in a sauce that is drizzled across the top of the burger and topped off with ginger infused pickles. Sprinkle on a little togarashi for a dash of umami.

Shakshuka Sunrise Burger

This breakfast burger is a gorgeous mash up of two of my favorite foods: breakfast burgers, and shakshuka. The tomato, bell pepper, and caramelized onion spread is a delicious smoky departure from ketchup, paired with quick pickled cucumber for a cool crunch and a fried egg with a glorious runny yolk, this colorful eye-catching dish turns heads at the barbeque without breaking the bank!

Chimichurri Skirt Steak and Decadence wine pairing

When you are preparing a meal, taste often takes the spotlight, leaving the other senses neglected. This month begs for all desires to be satiated with a feast unlike any other. Diving into an evening made for the senses, Ménage à Trois is featuring an exotic Chimichurri Skirt Steak. The garlic, parsley, and oregano in the sauce help bring out the natural flavors of the meat.

A dinner this lavish should be paired with Ménage à Trois Decadence. Generous berry aromas kissed by bittersweet chocolate make this a wine of unadulterated extravagance. Together, the wine and Chimichurri Skirt Steak create a pairing fit for an evening of indulgences.

French Onion Umami Burger

This deliciously rich and beefy burger is a harmony of amazing flavors. Imagine a succulent, ½-pound, ground chuck burger, seasoned to perfection with a homemade beefy-burger-rub, then topped with a classic French onion soup compote, melted Gruyere cheese and hickorysmoked bacon crumbles. Thinly sliced Roma tomatoes and fresh baby spinach top this beauty, before being crowned with a butter-toasted brioche bun.
