Comfort food is what we’re all craving during the holidays and Hideaway Kitchen & Bar in Hutto, Texas is like mama’s home cooking but elevated! I visited my friends at We Are Austin and shared some of my favorite down-home country dishes like a one-pound biscuit sandwich and a kicked up version of chicken and waffles. Plus, no holiday would be complete without a few H-E-B wine finds perfect for your celebrations. Watch the segment here!
Tanji’s Wine Finds:
I love to start with bubbles! One of my favorites is the Mumm Napa Brut Prestige; a sparkling pairs with anything, so you can’t go wrong with this pick. $15
Next is the Girard Chardonnay from Napa. You always need a great white wine for the table and this is a great find. The grapes are hand-harvested and the wine is aged in French Oak barrels. $20
If you’re serving lamb this season, The E. Guigal Saint-Joseph Rhone Blend will pair beautifully with it. This wine is very layered, you’ll taste dark red fruits, tobacco, leather in this one. It’s a great food wine and it would even pair great with a steak or other roasted meats. $35
Last, but not least is the Greenwing Duckhorn Cabernet from Washington state. In my opinion, these Cabs are lighter and a bit softer than a napa cab. You’ll get notes of dark cherries, strawberries and some warm spices and finishes with a soft cocoa note. $30
