Mushroom Ragu Recipe from Messina Hof Winery & Resort

Mushroom Ragu was a part of the wine and food pairing event

Mushroom Ragu, at the wine and food pairing event, Messina Hof, TX

Yesterday as a part of the 37th Harvest Festival at Messina Hof we attended a Wine and Food Pairing event. One of the foods prepared was Mushroom Ragu.

During the food pairing it was mentioned that you can use red or white wines to pair with mushrooms. The mushrooms absorb some of the wine and take on some of the characteristics of the wine. Use the same wine to pair with the mushroom dish.

We wish to give many thanks to Messina Hof Winery & Resort for sharing the Mushroom Ragu recipe with us.
