This year, we had the pleasure of partnering with the fine folks at Lucky Rice, an Asian food festival featuring regional chefs from across the nation. While at first glance, Bordeaux Wines and Asian cuisine might seem like a peculiar pairing, attendees were surprised and delighted to find how the range of balanced, fresh and crisp Bordeaux whites complimented the flavors, aromas and spices often found in Asian fare.
We had a great time with Lucky Rice in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Miami! Though the journey may be over, you can try this delicious pairing at home any time. Sift through some of our Lucky Rice inspired recipes here or here and find one below from Mr. Chow’s in Miami!
- 9 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup sesame oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 package phyllo, thawed
- All-purpose flour, as needed
- Melted butter
- Mix scallions with sesame oil and the salt. Place one layer of phyllo on work surface and brush with melted butter. Add another layer and repeat with butter. Sprinkle with scallions and repeat with another two layers until you have 10 layers total of phyllo. Repeat whole process until you have used all scallions and phyllo. Slice the large pancakes into smaller squares and bake in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
