What Is Cabernet Sauvignon?

Cabernet Sauvignon wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and aged in a cask that at one time was used for white wine. Sauvignon Blanc and other wines from this genus have traditionally been blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, giving both a red and white aspect to their flavor. The name Cabernet comes from French champagne and is also the name of a wine is from the same name in the English language.

The amount of Cabernet Sauvignon that is used in a meal is measured by the gallons of wine that will be consumed. Usually a recipe would allow for one bottle of Cabernet wine per meal. For dinner we may say that a meal consisting of cheese and wine is a “Cabrito”.

The traditional way to make a Cabrito is to blend the two wines together using a blend strainer to filter the wine from the Cabernet Sauvignon and white wine together, then stir the two together with a wooden spoon to make a white wine and a red wine. This would be mixed with a lighter meal such as chicken or fish such as aizers or an appetizer and that would be followed by a lighter meal itself.

Take note that the somewhat bitter flavor of the Cabernet Sauvignon cuts well with dishes which use spices such as salsa, a lightly sauced seafood pasta dish, curries and a creamy white wine, etc. Thus, dishes using a cream based sauce or rice is a great way to cut through the fattiness of the meal. My suggestion is to try having the meal as originally mentioned and then once you get used to the meal, giving it a try. You will be glad that you did.

The next time you or your friends want to get married, you can put together a Cabernet and Shiraz dinner party. All you will need to do is find a nice dinnerware set and white wine glasses, along with a bunch of good bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, sit down and decide on a menu, decide on the wines and start cooking. When it comes to dessert, go for the French bread or see if you can make a nice fruit cake.

As shown with other foods where the majority of the ingredients are in the fresh produce, you can have the greatest success with fresh ingredients when you are planning your cooking.

Go through the grocery home and see what you can get your hands on and replace ingredients as you old ones. Never throw out meat or fish, but always make sure they are fresh before serving. In the kitchen, clean up as you go along and make sure merely cooking meals right away so that you will not leave the kitchen table with a surprise.

So much planning is needed to make your dinner party a success. Never try to tackle too much at once. Remember, the best results are achieved when you are methodical, not quick. Break large tasks down into ones you can complete in a couple of hours, leaving nothing in the kitchen or refrigerator that will be used tomorrow.

Roma tests conducted during preparation show if a dish is prepared correctly. By knowing what went wrong during the preparation of a meal, you will know what to avoid when preparing the next meal. Finger foods are particularly tricky. If you leave these items in the kitchen too long, you will not only be eating your own feces, but also end up with a negative reaction from the other person.

I have read in some cookbooks that it is a good idea to take a cooking class. This is a great idea, but one has to be careful if taking a cooking class. You certainly do not want to be flaired in front of your friends and family. However, if you are genuinely interested in cooking, taking a class may be the way to go. You will have much more fun, and you might learn a lot more than you might have expected.

Cooking classes are usually offered by professional teachers, usually with a proven track record. They make a considerable difference in your life, and they are a known to be a wonderful tool for learning, developing your talent in the kitchen.

Most cooking classes allow you to participate in the actual cooking, making and serving of dishes in the class, and some even let you assist in parts of the cooking process. The classes are conducted at school programs, day care centers and other places where you can stay for several hours.

You will have personalized lessons customized to your needs and personal preferences. Plus, if you are knowledgeable in cooking, other classes will open up some new vistas for you.
