Comfort cooking: In light of our current stay-at-home lifestyles, we’re all about comfort food right now. What could possibly deliver more comfort than shrimp fried rice? This DIY version is fresh and flexible: chockful of California asparagus and other goodies, like toasted almonds, and you can change it up to taste. Swap shrimp for tofu. Add snow peas or not. You’re the chef!
Which wine? Pinot Gris—aka Pinot Grigio—is crisp and quaffable, an affordable choice for weeknight meals and those virtual happy hours. This popular variety performs well in California’s cooler zones, where it retains its zippy acidity. Think about buying a case to get you through summer; it vanishes fast.
Follow the leaders: April is Down to Earth Month, time to toast the California wineries that are leading the way in planet and people-friendly practices. Many are offering special pricing on wine and shipping this month, so you can keep your glass and your wallet full.
