Italian works really well with Chianti, Trebbiano, and Verdicchio. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. The Mazzei Fonterutoli Chianti Classico with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 30 dollars per bottle.

Mazzei Fonterutoli Chianti Classico

"Lots of meat, berry and plum character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Decadent style that I like. Serious quality for the vintage. No Castello in 2002, so this was upgraded."-Wine SpectatorColor: Deep purplish-red but bright and exceptionally concentrated.Bouquet: Extremely intense and complex with scents of cherries and raspberries accompanied by light toasty and spicy shadings.Flavor: The impact in the mouth is incisive but soft due to a substantial structure of tannins in which those that are soft and well rounded stand out. Acidity is fused with the wine's body and aids the transmission of pleasant sensations of warmth and strength. The wine features a long finish that is unusual for a regular Chianti Classico.

Instructions

  1. In a bowl or mixer, stir together the water, yeast and honey. The water should be between 100 and 110 degrees. Allow the mixture to sit about 10 minutes until the yeast looks puffy and smells pungent. In a separate bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, salt and dried rosemary. Stir together to combine. Add the flour mixture to the mixer along with the grapeseed oil.
  2. If youre doing this by hand, mix the ingredients together well until you can form a ball. Turn the ball of dough out onto a floured surface, press the chopped basil leaves into the dough and kneed the dough until smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. If youre using a Kitchen Aid, simply use the dough hook attachment, turn the mixer on a medium setting (I use speed 4) and allow the hook to do the work for 10 minutes.
  3. Place the ball of dough in a bowl and allow it to sit covered (by plastic wrap or a kitchen towel) for 1 hour in a warm place; it should be twice the size you started out with after about an hour.
  4. To caramelize the onions, add half a tablespoon of grapeseed oil and a tablespoon of butter to a skillet and heat over medium. Add the onion and saut, stirring frequently until translucent. Once onion is translucent, reduce heat to medium low and allow onions to brown, stirring every few minutes. Allowing the onions to wilt, turn completely brown and caramelize will take about 30 to 40 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  6. Prepare a lightly oiled baking sheet (a 9 x 13 works great, but no worries if yours is bigger). Turn the dough out onto the sheet and press it into the sheet with your palms until the dough meets the edges or until dough is about thick. Poke holes into the surface of the dough with your finger then drizzle 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil over it. Use your hands to evenly coat the dough with the oil. Allow the dough to sit another 10 to 20 minutes until it appears puffy and swollen again.
  7. Spread the parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper over the dough then spread the sun-dried tomatoes and caramelized onions on top, pressing them into the dough slightly. Bake in the oven until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Turn temperature down to 350 and bake another 5 minutes (until the center is cooked all the way through). Allow the bread to cool about 10 minutes then serve with dinner!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • The great thing about parmesan cheese is that a little goes a long way, especially if you're buying the real deal.

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • If parmesan plays a big role in the flavor of your dish (or if you're a serious foodie or serious about avoiding additivies) it might be worth your time to track down "true" parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • Don't have fresh herbs? Substitute dried herbs, but use about 1/3 less because dried herbs are more potent than fresh.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Fresh herbs should be added toward the end of the cooking process — even at the very last minute?especially delicate herbs like cilantro, basil, and dill. Hardier herbs like bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme can be added earlier.

Green Tips

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
