I’m hoping to at long last open one or perhaps even two of my fancy Barolo purchases over Xmas time broadly, following all the kind advice I received on my thread last Spring.
My potential food choices need however to be relatively simple - I’m going to be solo-at-home with our boy over Xmas, apart from a few days en famille at one of my sisters, as wife needs to spend a few months back in Taiwan (her mum’s not in the best of health at the moment and it’s been almost 3 years since any visits to/from Taiwan due to COVID etc). Fortunately her employers have been very understanding and she’ll be doing her work from Taiwan while I hold the fort here.
So bearing this in mind and that preparing Full Monty game dishes etc is probably not viable, any thoughts for relatively straightforward food / dishes that complement Barolo? Our boy will eat risotto probably, and he’s certainly a big one for pasta, especially spag bol / ragu.
I’m kind of assuming things towards the umami side is the way to go?
Any suggestions for simple killer dishes welcome :~}
