Cheap Prosecco - Who Pays the Price?
Thursday, 31 August 2017 00:00

glass sparkling wine

The temptation to buy inexpensive wine is real. There aren’t too many people in this world who actively turn away a bargain, a point proved recently by the hundreds of people who queued for hours at a supermarket in England to buy Prosecco at £3.33 (roughly AUD$5) a bottle. The glass bottle and the cork would cost that much alone. The thrill of paying less is satisfying, but in the end, is it always worth it?

Orecchiette Pasta with Cime di Rape
Thursday, 31 August 2017 03:56
orecchiette-pugliesi
 
The pasta shape called Orecchiette (literally little ears) is one of the most emblematic dishes of Apulian cuisine. 
 
Traditionally they are served with cime di rapa, a green leafy vegetable grown in Puglia in the cooler months, also known throughout the world as broccoli rabe, rapini or turnip tops. However, these can be substituted or combined with any leafy green vegetables, broccolini or new season asparagus.
 
This recipe from Melbourne Italian restuarant Tipo 00 uses broccolini, but the true hero of the dish is anchovy.

What You Should Know About - Baladin: Italy's #1 Craft Beer
Wednesday, 19 July 2017 06:38

  Teo enfant

1. About 85% of the grains that Baladin uses for its beers come from their own organic farms.

Baladin has about 450ha of land in Piemonte (near the brewery), Basilicata and Marche combined. They are one of only 7 brewers in the world who grow their own cereals and the first beer company that was associated with the Slow Food movement.

2. For Teo Musso, the founder of the Baladin Brewery, beer is passion, an intense love for taste and a form of personal expression.

Through his recipes, he has communicated special moments in his life, sides of his being and his constant search for the perfect sensory balance. Isaac and Wayan tell of the birth of his children, while Nazionale expresses the commitment to working in direct contact with the Earth and the desire to be Italian.

Punch Cocktail Party - Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2017

A beautiful bowl of punch creates the mood for any celebration. Perhaps it is because punch remains the most democratic beverage of all, with everyone enjoying the same drink from the same source, and each return to the punch bowl offering the prospect of a new encounter.

It was the English and Dutch sailors in the early 1700s who took the idea of punch back to Europe from India. The word itself coming from the Sanskrit (pañc) meaning 'five', as the drink was originally concocted from five key elements – sweet, sour, alcohol, water and spice.

The '5 elements' idea remains a handy guide with the difference between a good and a great punch being in the balance of elements. Remember, a great punch should never be too alcoholic, but rather refreshing and approachable with an interesting flavour that keeps everyone coming back for more.

For the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2017 we asked cocktail consultant Shaun Byrne to create a selection of punch recipes using the range of high quality artisan liqueurs, spirits and amari imported by Enoteca Sileno. We think you'll be inspired by the results.
