The brunch menu as the Little Red Wasp in Fort Worth is pretty crave worthy. The cheddar chicken biscuit is tops in its game with a huge plateful sized slab of chicken sandwiched between that ethereal biscuit that is near lighter than air. It gives us all reason to make the drive to the downtown Fort Worth restaurant. The chilaquiles are also tops in their game. But what makes us truly lose control is the Benedict. Continue reading

What weighs five ounces, is about an inch and half tall and is no more than five weeks old? I can only think of one thing, the MT TAM from Cowgirl Creamery. This lush heavy butter fat cheese has a soft and very edible rind, slightly oozy in the center and will make you leap like a lord.

It has a rich and buttery flavor with a natural essence of cremini mushrooms, a certain nuttiness from the aging, topped with a delicious lemony finish that pairs ever so wonderfully with your favorite bubbles. It is a festive cheese and it clings to a festive wine. But do not fear pairing with whatever works for you.
In the past few weeks we have enjoyed the cheese with a delicious 2015 Pinot Noir from MacMurray, and more recently with a Malbec. The Malbec had an assist from particularly beautiful and plump blackberries, which were on the sour side but played well into the hands of the wine and cheese combination.
