Sheri Castle is an award-winning, professional food writer and culinary instructor. She is known for melding storytelling, humor, and culinary expertise, so she can tell a tale while making a memorable meal.
"I’ve been a cook and writer my whole life. I wrote my first original recipe and mailed it to a TV show when I was four years old. I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."

Yes, there is a hoppy pilsner. The bigger question is why? Pilsners have always had a distinct hoppiness to them that has played well against the crisp finish. The pilsner is a very good conveyance for bitterness, thanks to that bottom fermenting yeast making a very clean beer. Pilsners can be fickle and many brewers will shy away from them for business reasons—it takes much longer to brew a pilsner than an ale which means less beer to sell. For this frittata, we think a hoppy pilsner will play well with the bitterness in the microgreens.

Pinot Noir-based Champagne - Champagne, France
Egg’s wobbly texture tends to interfere with many wines’ delicate flavors and components. A sturdy Champagne with moderate weight is the way to go here. The Champagne’s toasty citrus notes will play well with the tangy chevre.
