Wow, I can’t believe Thanksgiving was last week and we are already into December!
Christmas music is officially turned on. I’ve already climbed into the attic to drag out all of our Christmas decorations (and without getting locked in a la Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation style might I add). And all that apple cider… yea, it’s been replaced by hot chocolate. A lot of hot chocolate.
I love this time of year.
The shopping for gifts. The cookie baking. The cookie eating. The collective generous holiday spirit of (most) New Yorkers. Getting together with family and friends. And of course, the parties.
You know how much I love small plates. Apps. Tapas. Finger food. It’s totally my jam. All little bites, jam packed with flavor. That’s totally my type of holiday eating. And entertaining. These Filet Mignon Crostini with Romesco, Goat Cheese, and Crispy Shallot… #legit
And really, no party is complete without some good wine.
I’m all about some good wine. Asheley and I absolutely love the stuff. And I’m not talking just open up a bottle of whatever you have lying around. Carefully selecting wine to pair with your food… picking a bottle that’s going to complement the flavors you’re pounding down at the table… that’s where the magic happens.
And guys. This Filet Mignon Crostini. I don’t even know where to start. Let’s just say this is some classy stuff. Like, you’ll definitely impress your family and friends when this is on your holiday menu. You can earn some serious entertaining street cred with these bad boys.
And it’s perfect with a bold wine like…. oh hey there Alamos Malbec. It’s equally bold, has some great natural acidity, and is super versatile with big-flavored foods like this crostini.
Do you dare to pair with Alamos Malbec this holiday season? Alamos Malbec is grown at the foothills of the Andes using grapes that combine bold layers of flavor and excellent natural acidity for a versatile wine that you can dare to pair with a wide variety of holiday dishes.
