Here is what we decided today to pair with today’s dinner– Chicken Shawarma.
Our Sauvignon Blanc Choice
Ada & I decided on Bask Sauvignon Blanc, a white wine known for its crisp, refreshing taste and aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, and herbs. It is typically made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape and is popular in many wine-producing regions around the world, including France, New Zealand, and California. This one was created by Arterra Wines Canada, the BASK line is also available in red, white, and rosé varietals.
Ada— This wine was very light and grape-y, it was a nice wine for a warm spring day on the deck. However, it didn’t really bring out the flavours of the shwarma we had for dinner. I think next time I make shwarma I’d choose a richer full bodied red. Although it was chicken, the flavours were strong and needed a bolder wine to offset them. That being said, this wine would be amazing on a hot summer’s day on the deck with light snacks, so would definitely buy again.
Rick— My first thought with my first sip was Apple Juice! Of course that became grape juice as it settled on my tongue. This local wine has the lowest sugar of all of the dry white wines. It’s known for its high acidity and typical green herbal flavours. I like dry.

Butter Chicken, also known as Murgh Makhani, is a popular Indian dish made with marinated chicken cooked in a creamy tomato-based sauce. The chicken is usually marinated in a mixture of yogurt and spices such as cumin, coriander, and turmeric before being grilled or roasted. The sauce is made with tomatoes, cream, butter, and a blend of spices such as garam masala, cumin, and coriander. The chicken is then simmered in the sauce until it is tender and flavorful. The dish is typically served with rice or naan bread and is known for its rich and creamy texture and flavorful spices.
