#SoupWeek with Chef Robin White

What an experience this week has been with Chef Robin White and the twitter gang.  I watched the excitement unfold.  People getting ready each evening for a bowl of soup.  Yes...I said soup.  It was not only the great recipes that Robin put together for wonderful soups each night but also the warm camaraderie of friends coming together to have fun and share good times together with great food and great wine.  Isn't that what it's all about...?  Chef Robin brought over a 100,000 people together each night.  That is amazingly awesome when you think about it. 

Saturday was a great evening  for the partnership with Robin to sponsor soup night #8.  You can find the recipe for Chef Robin's Roasted Buttenernut Squash/Grilled Corn on her website along with all the other great soup recipes that were made this week.

I am humbled that Robin would choose me to make her recipe and choose my wines to be paired with such an awesome dish...just like her blog said "a dish that soothes the soul."  It did just brought a few of my friends togther.  We shared, laughed and had an evening of fun.  The time together, the absolutley wonderful soup and the perfect pairing with Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay soothed our souls and prepared us for the next day.  It left us full and satisifed, yet wanting more.... 

Looking forward to what Chef Robin will be doing next...

Now That's My Kind of Soup

I was honored when Chef Robin asked me to sponsor one of her soup nights.  She makes such wonderful could I possibly pass up this opportunity to work with such a talented Chef?  Chef Robin came up with the right soup for me - something that soothes the soul.  I love that...and in today's world we can all use a bit of that.

When I think of soup I think of my grandmother...she use to make the best soup that expressed the love she had for us.  I hope you, too, have some wonderful memories that surround a great bowl of soup shared with family and those you love.  Reach out to some friends, invite them over and enjoy a bowl of this fantastic recipe with a glass of Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay.  The clean, crisp unoaked chard pairs very well with this spicy dish...I am certain you will enjoy it! Check out the recipe on Robin's website.

Thanks Chef Robin
