Though it might sound time-consuming and tedious, making delicious gourmet food at home is possible. Because the internet has connected us more globally, we have been able to import the necessary spices and foods to ensure certain recipes are made correctly. Thus, if you know where to look, you can not only find the right ingredients for your exotic recipe but also the ideal JJ Buckley Fine Wines to go with it! Here are three gourmet recipes that can easily be made in the comfort of your own home.

Tortilla Española

Tortilla Española, otherwise known as the Spanish omelet, is a family favorite in Spain. This recipe is easily constructed at home with olive oil, eggs, red peppers, onions, salt, and pepper. Simply put these ingredients together in a skillet and flip them and you have yourself a healthy and gourmet Spanish tapa to eat any time of day. Additionally, if you pair this with a Spanish Rioja, you will be greatly surprised at how well the flavors complement one another.

Ensalada Caprese

Ensalada Caprese (Caprese Salad) is a worldwide favorite to eat during the summer when it is very hot. While some people use lettuce, you can go without if greens aren’t your thing. Merely cut in tomatoes mozzarella and place a sprinkle of pepper along with olive oil and a balsamic reduction. Now you have a sensational summer dinner that can be paired with a Rose wine from Aix-en-Provence, France.

Argentine Steak

There are few kinds of beef that rival an Argentine steak. What is incredible is that now you can bring the Argentine grill to your own home. Purchase a piece of Bife de Chorizo at your local market and buy a Malbec to drink while you grill. This will provide you a spectacular dinner you can grill outdoors in the summertime.

Eating gourmet food in your home is totally possible and not always a huge task. The key is to have fun while shopping and to not be afraid to experiment now and then. You will be truly amazed at what you can create when paired with a fine wine. Most of these you can make for a fraction of the cost of going to the restaurant and you will enjoy making dinner an international event in your own home. Try something new, and see where your new recipe takes you.
