Shaun’s Test Kitchen – Asian Meal



A video posted by Shaun Myrick (@shaunmyrick) on

I love Asian inspired flavors and so, I recently gave a couple of new recipes a good run through in my test kitchen. As usual, some good wine (and good friends) are essential to any test kitchen session, and this was no exception. We paired two excellent wines with the meal: Domaine Carneros white Pinot Noir and Kestrel Vineyards Malbec.
