Winery Turns Holiday Entertaining into Holiday Fundraiser The holiday months are a festive time of the year filled with friends and families gathering together to celebrate one another and the year. Whether it’s over a dinner table or across the kitchen table, great food and wine are passed and poured as we toast the people that make our lives special. For the third year, Gallo Family Vineyards® is offering a simple way for Americans to help seniors who may not be surrounded by friends, family and the abundance of food that is traditionally associated with the holidays. There are more than 8 million seniors that face the threat of hunger every day. With the third annual Gallo Family Vineyards Every Cork Counts™ the simple act of entertaining with wine and mailing in the cork will help to end senior hunger. Gallo Family Vineyards invites America to join them to raise up to $100,000* for Meals

On Wheels Association of America® (MOWAA). Making a difference in the lives of these seniors in need can be as simple as uncorking a bottle of wine or signing into Facebook. The corks from any bottle of Gallo Family Vineyards portfolio of approachable and foodfriendly wines can be mailed back through December 31, 2012. For every cork mailed back a $5 donation will be made to MOWAA. Additionally, a simple, fun Facebook game can be played to make virtual corks count to raise money and awareness for this important cause. More information is available at “We are proud to support Meals On Wheels Association of America’s mission to end senior hunger,” says Stephanie Gallo, a third generation Gallo family member. “For the third year in a row, the Every Cork Counts program gives Gallo

Family Vineyards and the thousands of Americans who enjoy our wines an easy way to support this important cause.” In the spirit of the season and this important cause, Gallo Family Vineyards has opened its family cookbook to share a recipe for the holidays. This sweet apple cake is a wonderful dessert to serve after a home-cooked dinner or as a warm treat to greet guests stopping over for some holiday cheer. The orange and walnut glaze pairs wonderfully with the citrus notes in the Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato. And when the last guest

leaves, be sure to send in the corks to make every cork count to end senior hunger for Meals On Wheels Association of America. *Gallo will donate $5 for each Gallo Family Vineyards cork mailed between August 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012 and received by January 10, 2013 to Meals On Wheels Association of America®, up to $90,000. Gallo will also donate $0.10 for each consumer who participates in the Facebook app for a maximum total donation of $10,000 during the social media promotion.

Pulled Pork Goes Beyond the Bun ner routine with these mouthwatering ideas from the National Pork Board: • Pulled Pork Wrap: For an easy lunch, combine pulled pork, chopped romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing in a flour tortilla. If enjoying at home, warm the wrap in a sandwich press or skillet for a restaurant-quality touch. • Pulled Pork Fried Rice: Put down that Chinese take-out menu! Fried rice is a great way to use up leftover protein, rice and veggies. In this flavorful stir-fry, classic Americana meets Asia with a combination of white or brown

rice, pulled pork, diced vegies and a lightly beaten egg. • BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza: Think past your basic pizza night with this sweet and savory take: top store-bought pizza dough with barbecue sauce, your favorite cheese, pulled pork and sliced green onions. Bake on high heat until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. • Pulled Pork Scramble: Pulled pork for breakfast? Absolutely. Add leftover pulled pork to a scramble of eggs, onions, bell peppers and cheese. Served alongside sliced tomatoes and buttered toast, it’ll feel just like Sunday

brunch — even on a Monday night. To prepare perfect pulled pork, follow these simple tips from the National Pork Board: • The Cuts: The best roasts for preparing pulled pork include the hearty, succulent Boston Blade Roast (also known as the Boston Butt), which comes from the pork shoulder, and the leaner, flavorful pork sirloin roast, from the lower end of the loin.

• The Temperature: For fall-apart pork, your best tools are patience and indirect heat. If preparing the roast in the oven or on the grill, the ideal “low and slow” preparation calls for temperatures between 250 and 300°F, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours per pound. In a slow cooker, heat pork for 6 to 8 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. • The Pull: When finished cooking, remove from heat and

let sit, covered in foil, for 10 to 15 minutes. “Pull” or shred meat with two large forks, and place in a large baking dish or pan. Discard any remaining fat, drizzle with sauce if desired, and serve. For more versatile pork recipes and inspiring tips, visit or Follow the National Pork Board on Pinterest and Twitter @AllAboutPork.
