Wines selected for this giveaway from Pays D’Oc PGI 2017 collection

Have you noticed something different about this site? Well, we had a revamp! The last time I refreshed it was about four years ago, and time has passed very quickly! This post contains a delicious recipe for bone marrow butter and a celebration giveaway of a case of wine that was kindly donated to Hot&Chilli by our friends over at Pays D’Oc PGI, in the Languedoc. You can read more about them here

Why bone marrow butter? I heard you ask. Back in the Spring, I attended a delicious event showcasing the fabulous wines from Pays D’Oc PGI, in London, for The Wine Week.

The wine and food pairing was perfect and balanced. One particular dish that stood out for me was the bone marrow butter served with roast beef and asparagus, so I decided to reproduce this at home and match it with a Pays D’Oc wine. The recipe is easy and fast. You can get the bone marrow from local butchers, large supermarkets, or online. The full recipe is below:

Let’s first explain the giveaway.
