Meats and Madeira wine

Pairing Madeira wine alongside meat

Filet Mignon

Filet mignon with foie gras, served with Justino’s Boal 10 Years

 

Boal is the choice to accompany a filet mignon with foie gras and a rich sauce.

Boal is a sweeter Madeira and an interesting rich choice, as it does dry out with age and I am sure will work well.

The recipe is available at the IVBAM listing.

Here Verdelho is paired very effectively with a chicken stew and this shows what a super versatile medium dry white wine Verdelho is. This is one for a winters evening.

What Madeira wine to serve with lamb, well the answer is Boal, and quite a young Boal. Interesting as Lamb with mint and chorizo is a powerful dish and needs something that will work well with strong flavours……and the answer is Boal.

The versatility of Madeira wine with rich meat dishes is impressive indeed and the talent of Madeira’s chefs in producing these recipes is impressive and goes to indicate the wide ranging and wonderful cuisine available on this island.
