A topic I’ve been longing to learn more about is wine and of course along with that comes wine and food pairings. While I can easily say that wine is my favorite liquid, I will admit that it is something I don’t know much about. I’ve got books, I’ve got a BF who sold wine for a short stint and yet I can barely determine if something is “oaky” or not. But what I do know? I know that a vinho verde tastes just perfect with peaches & pancetta.
With a short ingredient list and the use of cured pork I was sold on this recipe when I came across it on the Food & Wine website. Although I’m almost convinced you could wrap anything in pancetta and it would turn out delicious.
And until my wine palette is more refined, I’ll just have to stick with what tastes good. I think I can handle that.
Pancetta -Wrapped Peaches from Food & Wine, serves 4 as an appetizer
- 2 ripe peaches, sliced into wedges
- a few basil leaves, torn into about 12 pieces
- 12 slices pancetta
Roll pancetta in half. Place basil leaf and peach on one end and wrap pancetta around peach. Fasten with a toothpick if necessary.
Coat pan with cooking spray. Heat to medium-high heat. Add peaches and cook on both sides until pancetta is crispy.
Do you know of any good wine resources to help me out?
