A few weeks ago I enjoyed what I knew would have to become one of my picks for Dish of the Day when I enjoyed the Wild King Salmon with Beets and Chanterelles at Matt’s in the Market. Not only did executive chef Chester Gerl’s dish rise above the ordinary, but it reached new heights when paired with a bottle of Brick House Vineyards 2007 “Les Dijonnais” Pinot Noir. The buttery beets, with their earthy flavor, created a provocative counterpoint with the berry elements in the silky wine made from Dijon clones.
This dish is what tasting terroir is all about!
