Tasty Thursdays #3
It's a day late, but still a noteworthy recommendation! Today's pairing comes from Quince in Jackson Square, San Francisco. Situated in a 1907 brick building in the Financial District, Quince serves a daily changing Italian inspired menu. Just like at Craft and AQ, Quince uses the finest local and seasonal ingredients to keep their dishes fresh, elegant, and tasty. Our friend over at Quince, Chris, recommends this pairing:
Donkey & Goat's Suice Box paired with Dover Sole with wild ramp, rye berry and sunchoke with a red wine sauce.
"The Sluice Box is a great match - I love the texture of this wine with the fleshiness of the sole and the crunch of the rye berries. The skin contact from the grenache gives just the right amount of wild fermentation flavor to play with the wild ramps and sunchokes without being overly oxidative or losing too much fruit. But it still has enough of a vinous quality to stand up alongside a red wine sauce."Want to sample Quince's menu? Make reservations here!

Lastly, a big congratulations to Quince's own Michael Tusk who won the James Bear award for "Best Chef-Pacific!"
