Banrock Station Colombard Chardonnay

This healthy eating
May well be the death of me
Many years from now.

Name: Banrock Station Colombard Chardonnay
Type: white wine
Recipe: Falafel…soak chickpeas overnight but don’t cook them (the starch helps bind the patties later without having to add flour).  Drain and put in a food processor with onion, parsley, cumin, egg, salt, turmeric, cayenne, and garlic…so much garlic….  Whiz them to a consistency almost of fine bread crumbs then add just enough water (I was making chicken broth so scooped a little of that) to help it bind).  Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours then fry small spoonfuls mashed into patties.
Venue: house

Review/notes: I’m from the Deep South and can’t enjoy catfish without a side order of hushpuppies.  As soon as I decided on basa fish for Saturday I put the chickpeas for falafel in to soak — falafel are the Arabic equivalent of hushpuppies.  These were an especially good batch, too.

The wine was awesome with the aroma of Juicy Fruit chewing gum and flavours of nuts hiding behind plums and other summer fruits.
