I had a rocking pairing the other night. In anticipation of the season finale of “Mad Men,” my boyfriend Joel and I made a Spicy Chicken Soup from a fabulous French-Cambodian restaurant cookbook we picked up at the Elephant Walk in Boston.
We cracked open a bottle of 2006 Anderson Valley Dry Gewurztraminer from Castello di Amorosa, and together with a side of corn doused in sweet and spicy sauce, it was heaven. The lime and basil and bird’s eye chilies in the soup matched similar exotic flavors in the Gewurztraminer, and the wine’s hypnotic floral aromas took us much farther away than 1950′s Manhattan.
