Roasted Gar­lic & Pump­kin Soup

with Strewn Bar­rel aged Chardon­nay VQA

Food & Drink - - SPECIAL OCASSION - LCBO 522730, $14.95

This soup (recipe on page 158) was orig­i­nally part of a Hal­loween menu in Food & Drink’s Au­tumn 2011 is­sue, where we called it Vam­pire’s Demise, thanks to the roasted gar­lic in the recipe. Its deep nutty flavour har­mo­nizes beau­ti­fully with the pump­kin and also with this oak-aged Chardon­nay, a va­ri­etal that al­ways pairs well with any kind of squash. Chardon­nay takes many forms in On­tario’s wine re­gions and is justly cel­e­brated. Strewn’s ver­sion, made with fruit from vine­yards around Ni­a­gara-on-the-Lake, shows a soft tex­ture with creamy, peachy notes and but­tery vanilla oak. It’s a real crowd-pleaser—and ex­cel­lent value for money!
