‘Tis the season! We have our Christmas tree up and decorated, the Christmas must is playing non-stop (much to my husband’s dismay) and the holiday apps and wine are being enjoyed! While it seems like most holidays center around food, Christmas is one of my favorites. It might still be about 70 degrees outside here in Arizona but you better bet we still celebrate the holidays in style!
I’m all about the appetizers and the thing I love most about flatbreads is that they are basically like fancy pizzas that you can eat before you eat your actual meal. I’ve been wanting to experiment with delicata squash for a while now and I thought this would be the perfect recipe to try it out with. Besides the fact that delicata squash has the best name ever, it also has a really thin skin which allows you to roast it up and enjoy it without having to worry about peeling the skin off.
I wanted to make a fun holiday flatbread so I combined the delicata squash with kale, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, fresh thyme and balsamic glaze. And at the base of the flatbread is a delicious nutty Parmesan cheese. Not only does the parmesan cheese give this flatbread a really great taste, but it also goes so well with this Gloria Ferrer Pinot Noir! And we’ve gotta have the wine and app pairings for the holidays!
While I’m not super picky when it comes to wine and really enjoy many different kinds, my husband and I both agreed that Gloria Ferrer wine was one of our favorites. They’ve earned over 400 gold medals and lots of really great scores over the past few years. If you aren’t familiar with them, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards is located in the Southernmost part of Sonoma Country and was founded by the Ferrer family of Spain. They opened in 1986 (the year I was born!) and have been making exceptional wines ever since! Their red, white and sparkling wines are all perfect for your holiday entertaining needs this year!Print
