Today's Recipe: Chef Plum prepares his "Classic for the Classics" Roast Salmon with Lemon Burre Blanc

WINE & MOVIE PAIRING: What better to pair this classic, refreshing Pinot Grigio with than High Society? The film’s love triangle of a divorced socialite (Grace Kelly), her ex-husband (Bing Crosby) and a tabloid reporter (Frank Sinatra) who converge on her Newport wedding matches up perfectly with this wine’s hint of nuttiness. This gorgeous Technicolor remake of The Philadelphia Story – with music by Cole Porter – makes the perfect pairing for a wine of vibrant fruit notes and a tangy finish.

Join Chef Plum for some fun in the kitchen.

Get your ingredients together, open the Ca’ Vescovo Pinot Grigi, and get ready for this musical version of The Philadelphia Story staring Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly.
