  1. That looks amazing. What a neat club to be in. Cooking with wine is so much fun and pairing food with wine is great. I have to be honest, I never really know what I’m doing though.

  2. Zinfandel, it’s more than a wine. You can drink it, eat it. That’s the best complement for a wine. Which is expressed by those delicious beef ribs. Thanks for sharing such a nice recipe.
