Thank you A Spoon Full of NOLA for this delicious recipe!
AND my wine pairing for book club is: Chateau Ste Michelle Rose 2022, which I found on wine.com.
Crisp, fruity, it bursts with fruity flavor, is pale peach in color, and is refreshing. The sweet of this rose balances the tang of the crabmeat ravigote just right. So thank you wine.com- the bottle runs for about $10.99, which is also a bonus, given the quality. And such a pretty bottle too!
Bon Appetite, Murder Bookies!
