Spaghetti and Meatballs

A heaping platter of spaghetti and meatballs evokes a feeling of comfort—perfect for a family get-together.

Chicken in Riesling

Alsace’s dry Riesling lends a gentle richness to this creamy, comforting meal.

Poblano Potato Gratin

Forest-green poblanos lend a mild, almost fruity heat to a potato gratin.

Roasted Cauliflower Barley Risotto

Toasting barley in a dry pot adds an extra dimension to this hearty twist on risotto.

Buttered Polenta
