The App: Devilled Eggs and Sardines.
Jameson’s Pick: Gruet Brut NV.
I’d call deviled eggs a guilty pleasure, but I feel no guilt about enjoying them. A tray of deviled eggs is a party on a platter, bringing back waves of nostalgia of being a child at potlucks and adult cocktail parties. Now, as an adult myself, I can enjoy a drink along with the deviled eggs being passed around.
With the ultra-rich filling of egg yolk, which depending on your preference is mayonnaise, sour cream, or creme fraiche, I suggest something to combat the heaviness.
I’ve always been a fan of Chardonnay and eggs and also I think a Chablis is lovely. But since we’re being festive (this is a party, after all), I say bring out the bubbles. Since I like my wine to be a bit of a conversation-starter, I’m picking a sparkling wine from New Mexico. Yes, New Mexico. Gruet produces a quality sparkling wine at a fantastic price for over two decades. The high elevation vineyards keep the grapes cool, creating a lively sparkle in the glass. Now, when is that tray of deviled eggs coming around again?
