Cookbook Generation Riesling - Indian chicken
February 6th, 2019 | main dishes
This is how young winemakers cook! The second wine cookbook of the “Generation Riesling” has been published. 60 young winemakers present their favorite recipes – from everyday use to highly refined – and with each recipe, there is information about the respective winery and the appropriate wine recommendation. I started my culinary journey through the Generation Riesling in the wine region Rheinhessen and tried out a recipe from the Oswald winery: Murgh Makhani – Indian butter chicken!

In the “Generation Riesling” around 600 young German winegrowers up to 35 years of age have come together. Thus, the association, which was founded in 2006 by the German Wine Institute, is the largest young winegrower organization in the world! The “Generation Riesling” brings a breath of fresh air to Germany’s wine landscape.
The new cookbook of the “Generation Riesling” is structured according to wine regions. For each growing area there is general information and a map section. The recipes compiled in the book range from salads, pastas, quiches and burgers to classics such as Wiener Schnitzel and Sauerbraten, as well as more sophisticated recipes such as venison with hazelnut crust or flambéed scallops with Riesling foam. And best of all, the recipes are workable and can be re-cooked! In my experience, this is not necessarily the case in every cookbook.
Klara and Simon from Winery Oswald are present with their PURA VIDA wine and a recipe they brought back from an India trip. The two like to travel. Thus, the PURA VIDA wines are especially inspired by their travels, they stand for cosmopolitanism and desire to travel. So it came to the colorful city maps on the labels. With the words “Close your eyes and think of colorful silk saris, spicy curries, cows and bicycle rickshaws, old temples and the bustle of the streets – welcome to New Delhi, India!” they take us on their journey.

Wine recommendation by Klara Müller-Oswald
2017 PURA VIDA Sauvignon Blanc
The residual sweetness of a wine like this Sauvignon Blanc is a good pairing with the spicy chicken Indian style.
The varietal aromas range from yellow fruits over paprika and herbs to grass and flowers, the lively acidity and the sweetish melting create an animating game.
100% PURA VIDA, 100% joy of life

Venison steak with chilli and blackberry sauce
After collecting blueberries and mushrooms on my hikes over the past few weeks, now the blackberries are ripe. They’re plentiful this year, and they’re sun-kissed and sugar-sweet. I processed my harvest into a very fine sauce for the venison steak. Chilli, ginger, red and port wine and the fruity sweetness of blackberries – the sauce is really phantastic…read more
