'TIS THE SEASON… For Brunswick Shopping By Joanne Thompson

It seems that the week after Halloween all the decorations for Thanksgiving and Christmas appeared, Southport and Oak Island hosted a Christmas Shopping Open House…so here's what's new around Brunswick County in time for the holidays. What's hot on Oak Island is the opening of the OAKI DOAKI BISCUIT CO. The official tasting party is on November 12, 20011, from 7 am until noon offering a taste of all their baked specialties, as well as give- a ways, music, and some surprises. So stop by and sample. The official opening for business is on November 19. Two bakers prepare everything from scratch on sites each morning to be available from 5 am until noon. There's a "fisherman's special of 10% off from 5 am - 6am" for all the early risers. Who can resist the smell of

hot biscuits fresh from the oven? Some places that you might not think of for breakfast are doing just that. BELLA CUCINA, known for Italian dishes and pizza, has the usual, but prepared in a creative way. Try the breakfast roll, a sub filled with fried peppers and onions and eggs, or the breakfast pizza, a scrumptious savory delight or any combo or eggs Benedict. The BAR-BQUE HOUSE on Oak Island is serving up real down home style breakfast fare that includes biscuits right out of the oven. From 7 am until 10:30 the

folks at the BAR-B- QUE HOUSE will prepare your request to eat in or to go. There's a handy coupon in this paper to get you started. By the way, did you know that you can get a smoked turkey done for you from the BAR-B-QUE HOUSE? During November and December they can have them ready for you; no muss no fuss and reasonably priced. Order early. The EMPIRE DELI AND BAGEL in Leland has freshly boiled and baked bagels 7 days a week sold by the baker's dozen or separately, in a variety of flavors to go with cream cheese spreads that they make.

You can always stop in to The CRAZY CAKE CHICKS on Oak Island for the morning muffin special and a cup of coffee. They also have a very special offer for future brides. Book your wedding cake anytime between November 1, 2011 and February 28, 2012, and receive a 5% discount on the deposit; if you pay in full during that time you get a 10% discount. Brunch specials can also be found at TAYLOR'S CAFÉ AND CUISINE AND CATERING, BAKED WITH LOVE, and PORTS OF CALL all in Southport. Speaking of PORTS OF CALL, we are lucky to have this new addition to fine dining here in Brunswick County. It is a beautifully appointed restaurant that offers the "whole world on a plate" in the ‘Tis the Season continued on page 4

Match.Com for Wine?

by Amanda & Joaquin Carbonell Uncorked by the Sea Wine Shop & Gallery What if there was a dating site for food and wine? We imagine the profiles might read something like this. "Opulent, fleshy, and full-bodied, I am known to exhibit beautiful purity and concentrated fruit and am expected to age nicely. I boast a dense purple color along with a rich, sumptuous bouquet of licorice, creme de cassis, and smoky oak. Looking for a medium rare, lightly charred Ribeye with Garlic Potatoes." Sounds like a big Cabernet Sauvignon is looking for its dream dinner date. Or how about‌ "Flaky with a creamy shallot and white wine sauce, I am a Dover Sole seeking a sophisticated companion such as a dry Riesling to complement my delicate flavor." There are some real reasons certain foods and wines make a great match. It's not as simple as the old adage of fish and chicken with whites, meat and pasta with red. The two main actions in food and wine pairing are complementing and contrasting. You complement and contrast the three things food and wine have in common - weight, texture and flavor. Weight, Texture, Flavor Both food and wine have weight (in wine, it's called body). For example, most seafood is delicate and most red meats are heavy. Most white meats fall somewhere in between. Roast chicken will overwhelm a Champagne but it will be overwhelmed by a Cabernet Sauvignon. Basically, wine should complement the food rather than dominate it, so one simple thing to keep in mind is "light food: light wine; heavier food: heavier wine." Texture, on the other hand, can be complemented or contrasted. Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic pairing for red meat because they complement each other in texture. Both are rich and full-bodied.

Pairing salmon with Sancerre is an example of contrasting textures. Salmon is a fatty, weighty fish and Sancerre is a delicate Sauvignon Blanc. They don't match in texture, but the contrast between oil and acid enhances the experience of both. When it comes to flavors, oaked Chardonnay and cream sauce is a classic example of complementing flavors. In particular, Chardonnay that has gone through malolactic fermentation will match an Alfredo sauce in buttery, creamy notes. Oaked wines in general also match smoked foods. Try an oaked Shiraz from Australia with a smoked holiday ham. Also, there are classic dishes that pair meat with fruit. The redberry flavors in a Pinot Noir work very well with poultry and pork. Think turkey and cranberry sauce or pork chops with apples. When it comes to bad pairings, there are bad pairings and then there are very bad pairings. A surprise might be the romantic combination of Champagne with chocolate. Champagne has delicate body, high acidity, fine bubbles and complexity. Chocolate is weighty, rich and buttery. The bodies of this combination do not match at all and the sugar in the chocolate overwhelms the Champagne making it taste sour. A better choice for chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is Ruby Port. The slight bitterness of the chocolate is offset by the sweetness of the Port. The rich concentrated dark fruit in the Port is a wonderful match for the chocolate's flavors and the Port's alcohol content is mellowed by the chocolate's sweetness so the flavors linger. Fish and Seafood Pairings Many wines can overpower the delSee Matching Wine with Food on page 6

Good choices for fish and seafood i n c l u d e Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre, or White Bordeaux (usually a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon). Muscadet-Sur-Lie and Chablis are classic partners for oysters and mussels.

Richer fish dishes call for weightier wines and many California chardonnays are perfect although it's best to avoid overly oaky styles, as they can overpower the fish. Pinot Grigio with its neutral character makes it very flexible with fish and other foods. Rieslings which have lime flavors are a perfect match for fish. And, yes, it's okay to drink red wine with fish. Pinot Noir works well with salmon, but try it with grilled fish or anytime you're having fish and just want to drink red. Meat & Poultry Pairings Beef & Steak: Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic partner for red meat. Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah/Shiraz all work very well. Lamb: Bordeaux and Rioja are great choices. Casseroles and Stews: Hearty, robust reds are usually best and there are lots to choose from. C么tes-duRh么ne, Syrah/Shiraz and Zinfandel are all good options.

Pork and Veal: Red and white wine can work equally well with pork. Aim for lighter reds like Pinot Noir, Beaujolais or Chianti, or softer reds like Merlot. Chardonnay is also a good choice for most pork dishes.

Poultry: As the flavor strengthens from chicken to pheasant, so, too, should the wine. A wide variety of wines work with poultry, particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Strongly flavored poultry and game birds can easily handle red Bordeaux, Cabernets and Merlots. Other Foods Pizza: Think red. Italian reds like Chianti, Valpolicella or those made from the Sangiovese grape are particularly good, but so is Zinfandel. Pasta: With creamy and fishy sauces, lean towards whites like Pinot Grigio and crisp Chardonnay. With red sauces, meat sauces and lasagna, go with a hearty red. Any Italian will do as will Zinfandel or Syrah/Shiraz. Vegetarian: Vegetarian entr茅e pairing really depends on the preparation of the dish and its spices. If it's an earthy, nutty dish, Pinot Noir could be great. If it's lighter, with more green vegetables, then a white like Chardonnay is best. Dessert Either on its own or in tarts, fruit flatters sweet wines wonderfully. The acid in the fruit is a nice foil to the sweetness of the wine. Try Sauternes, Late Harvest Riesling or Muscat. If the dessert is already sweet and heavy, try a light, refreshing glass of Moscato d'Asti or Champagne. Joaquin and Amanda Carbonell are the owners of Uncorked by the Sea Wine Shop and Gallery in Southport where they offer complimentary daily tastings.
