So it finally happened, I went to Alsace, and I drank Gewurztraminer with the local foods. Turns out, there are some really nice pairings for the (German) influenced French dishes of the region. Mind you sauerkraut is a food group there, and the meat abounds like you wouldn't believe. Bringing inspiration into my own kitchen I would mimic a dish we had several times there with a few easy tweaks. I would roast the sauerkraut until it is nicely caramelized and not as harsh, grill a few links of boudin blanc, and maybe serve them both with a little pile of buttered spaetzle. Kick it up a notch with some chopped parsley, and you will be amazed at how well Gewurztraminer matches this dish!

Additional Information:



- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
