Filet bean and scallop salad, paired with Assyrtiko

Many people are interested in venturing beyond the classic, familiar wines at dinner, but pairing new flavors with food can be a challenge. In this week’s episode of The Splendid Table, Evan Goldstein talked to host Lynne Rossetto Kasper about how to bring emerging wines and delicious recipes together in flavorful harmony.

In the interview, Goldstein gives his advice on how to show off the elements of three summer-perfect white wines: crisp, citrusy Assyrtiko, Sardinian Vermentino. and fruity-floral Torrontes, and shows how once you open your mind to wine’s less-traveled roads, the terrain gets a lot more interesting.
