White Wine BiscuitsMADE BY AMERICAN VINTAGE IN LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK
Here at Mouth, we believe all things quaint and British are good.
More importantly, we believe all things involving wine are good.
So when we discovered this scrumptious combination of the three, we declared them brilliant.
These are called "biscuits," in the British sense of the word: that is, they fall somewhere between a cookie and a cracker in the texture department, and therefore are appropriate to eat in twice the circumstances. If only it were appropriate to have actual wine as often!
Well, these biscuits might just be the closest thing to that. They're made with actual white wine – summery, crisp and refreshing – which goes perfectly with shallots and their mild, red onion-y twang. Of course, all that mellowness needs to be balanced, which is where the cayenne kick comes in. In fact, these are spicy enough to warrant a chilled glass of bubbly on the side. Whine not?
Tip of the Tongue
You're gonna eat a lot of these – and then you'll feel the burn. You'll probably want some tangy, creamy Vermont Goat Cheese along with that wine, to help cool things down in your mouth.
