As I watched Olaiya put this sandwich together, I had a moment of “I’m not worthy!” It is so elegant. Yes there are many steps, but look at it! I can’t wait for that invitation when someone says, “Can you bring a dish to a picnic?” I am showing up with this roulade – it will be my day in the sun!

Our crisp dry Tieton Blend Cider has always paired well with seafood. This easy to prepare crab sandwich served on pretzel bread is the perfect pairing for this cider. Everyone loves crab and making a sandwich with it is such a treat. The salt from the bread marries with the tang of lemon dressing and tarragon; then the velvety softness of the avocado hits your mouth. Yum.

Grains and cider are a match made in heaven, and grain salads are healthy and easy to prepare. In this salad the farro and mushrooms are such an earthy combination especially with the toasted walnuts. The first time I made this my chives were blooming in the garden and they were beautiful in this salad, but snipped chives will do most of the year. The juice from the mushrooms blended with the lemon juice balances all of the flavors in this hearty salad.

Can you ever have enough tomato soup recipes? On those cold, rainy winter days nothing satisfies me like tomato soup and grilled cheese. Well, this recipe and pairing takes it to a new level. The toast and cheese are on top of the soup and the soup has texture. The fennel in this soup is used in three forms, and the depth of flavor that comes from the three keeps changing with each bite. When we made this soup and tasted it with the cider, we came up with two options. Chunky or smooth; bold or subtle, this recipe has it all.

There is nothing more satisfying than a pureed fall vegetable soup. This recipe calls for carrots, but it is equally delicious when made with pumpkin or butternut squash. But you don’t want to miss the Maple-Bacon Chutney…oh my, as I have said before, cooking with Olaiya is always rewarding and this is one of those OMG toppings that makes a humble soup reach royalty status. The chutney can be made in advance, or make extra to top roasted squash later in the week. After you taste it, you will find many ways to use this chutney!
