Summertime lunch

Why make life difficult? Now’s the time to bring out your best ingredients and concoct a simple meal – but also one full of character.

…And the livin’ is easy

When guests show up out of the blue, easy meals are the way to go. Our mini sandwiches – with Rosette de Lyon salami, herb-cheese spread and pickles – convey an “on-vacation” mood. A large tray of makings in the middle of the table, guests helping themselves, your favourite salad… Now that’s an easy and terrific lunch!

Sandwich bar

A fun way to entertain is to put all the ingredients on the table and let your guests create their own sandwiches. Present an array of cold cuts, cooked Nordic shrimp, roasted veggies, condiments like pesto, chutney, spiced mayonnaise, guacamole and apple slices, and a basket full of ciabatta bread, baguette slices, tortillas, Kaiser rolls, pita bread… As for what wine to drink with the sandwiches, keep it simple by offering both white and red – like the Louis-Roche Saumur or the Clos de la Briderie – and let the guests make their own selection.

What to drink with this sandwich?

Simplicity often works best. That’s the case with this most classic of food-wine pairings. The combination of salty salami and sour pickles calls for a fruit-forward wine with a good dose of both acidity and silky tannins. La Princesse Maudite, a Pinot Noir-Gamay blend, is ideal with charcuterie. This wine also offers notes of fresh cherries, flowers and delicate spices.
