Popcorn recipe and Bandol rosé pairing by Kermit Lynch

I cannot conceal my thrill that Kermit Lynch commented on my blog yesterday. In case you missed it, he wrote:

    One of my favorite pairings is the Bandol rosé (Domaine de Terrebrune also makes a winner) with popcorn. No, not buttered popcorn. To really make the wine and popcorn work wonders, I use olive oil, salt, and dried thyme stirred into the popped corn. A hit of Provence.

Mr. Lynch, thank you for stopping by and thanks for reading.

I also heard from Clark Terry who works with Kermit. He contacted the “Beaune” office: roughly 5,000 cases of Bandol Rosé are released by Tempier each year. I’m glad that a few of them make to Austin so that me and Tracie B can enjoy our Bandol with our Idol! Next week, we’ll have to try Kermit’s popcorn…

  1. Oh… the pleasure to represent such an incredible portfolio of wines! Can’t wait for the portfolio tasting in San Francisco in May! Thank you, Kermit!

  2. Speaking of popcorn, next time you go to the movie theater smuggle in a bottle of Champagne and some dark chocolate. The combination of bubbles, salty popcorn (no butter) and chocolate is divine!
