Bourride served with a Chardonnay from Jura #FishFridayFoodies #Winophiles

 Fall weather always makes me crave comfort foods.  Unfortunately, for me, that brings to mind rich, hearty soups and stews as well as pot roasts and pasta dishes.  Delicous but not necessarily healthy.  This Fish Stew soothed me and settled that craving.  Delicious and Healthy.  That is a big win!!

Bourride  with Wine

Fish Friday Foodies are serving up comfort food today.  I paired this lovely fish stew with a bottle of wine from Jura to include the French Winophiles group as well........

Sue of Palatable Pastime is hosting Fish Friday Foodies today.  Sue asked us to share comfort food today.  Let's see what everyone cooked up:

Rich, flavorful broth spooned over plump fresh shrimp and firm white fish.  I served this up with a lovely Fall Salad with Chocolate Vinaigrette and Copy-Cat Cheesecake Factory Bread.  


Then I poured a bottle of Jura Chardonnay to enjoy with this marvelous dinner.  It was an amazing pairing and I was so happy that David of Cooking Chat invited us to join him in visiting Jura for this month French Winophiles event.  You can learn more about the Jura area and why David chose it in his Preview Post.  Let's see what everyone thought:

This was my first experience with Jura wines.  Reading about Jura, it reminded me of our Michigan wine growing areas.  Short hot summers and long cold winters.  Here in Michigan we produce some great white wine but reds are more difficult because of the weather.  This knowledge had me looking for a white wine to try from Jura, France.

We are all meeting up at twitter chat tomorrow morning at 11 AM ET to discuss the wines we chose and our thoughts on them.  We would love to have you join us.  You will find us by searching #Winophiles.

Bourride , salad and wine

The wine pours a golden yellow and is very smooth and buttery.  It was a very nice pairing not only with the Bourride but it also went surprisingly well with the salad.

While I chose a Chardonnay, for the reasons stated above, come to find out that Jura is very proud of the wine made from Pinot Noir.  I'm anxious to read what those who tried the Pinot Noir thought about it.  If the Chardonnay is any indication, I'm sure that the Pinot Noir is lovely.  Hope to see you at chat in the morning.
