I Tried the Wine Country Foodie Club and Here's What I Thought...

Warning this is a Mouthwatering Review of the Wine Country Foodie Club.

I love to cook.  I think I am pretty creative in the kitchen, but recently I have hit a lull.  My cooking felt uninspired.  So I thought about joining one of those meal plans where they send you everything in a box and you make it.  The issues I had with that is that I really like to buy local produce when I can.  I like to pick out my meats, my veggies, and truly, I want it as fresh as I can get it.  So I have always been hesitant to order meal boxes that cost so much every week.

What I really wanted was something that sent me great ideas for dinner parties, helped me paired with the appropriate wines and gave me organic or natural ingredients that made what I cooked less run-of-the-mill and more WOW.  I also have food allergies in my home to deal with so I needed this supplement to my kitchen to be flexible enough for me to sub out the things we can't eat.

So I tried the Wine Country Foodie Club from the O'Connell Family.

I had previously tried a few of the O'Connell Family Wines, I loved the quality of wines, so I thought why not join the Wine Country Foodie Club? I loved all the recipes they have on their website, this could be interesting right?  So I asked them to send me a box of goodies.

I got the February 2018 Wine Country Foodie box delivered.  I got full sized products including estate olive oils, cabernet sauvignon sea salt and other culinary items I wouldn't find anywhere else.  It also came with recipe cards and a menu if I were to host these as a dinner party.  

I was having my in-laws over for dinner so I decided to go for the dinner party.  I made the strawberries first.  I figured that would be easy to complete and they were super easy.  The cabernet sauvignon sea salt on the top was unique, but WHOLLY COW it was really delicious.  I would never have EVER thought to do that.  The dark chocolate they sent was excellent as well.

Next Up I made the Goat Cheese Crostini, and I again, would never have thought to pair almonds, cherries and onions together, but it was crunchy, salty with a touch of sweet.  I have never had anything like it.  I will make this again, and it was a hit with my family.  

Have you ever made a filet mignon in a cast iron pan?  Me neither.  I have always grilled them.  I found the most beautiful grass-fed steaks at the market, and thought twice about following the directions for this one when saw the cooking instructions.  I did it anyway.  As the steaks sizzled in the butter and grapeseed oil the flavor exploded from the cast iron pan.  The smell of the seasoning was awesome.  I removed the steaks and made the pan sauce accompanied by the broccolini suggested on the website and the gouda mashed potatoes.  It was a classic steakhouse configuration, but the gouda in the potatoes and the lemon olive oil on the broccolini was delightful.  The pan sauce was hands down the most exquisite finish to a steak I have ever made at home.  BEST STEAK DINNER EVER.  I couldn't believe how amazing this dish was.  I might not grille steak again.

Conclusion:  TRY the Wine Country Foodie Club.  I will be doing this again, but next time I am also going to order the wine they suggest.  It was a great experience and I have enough of the products to make this a few more times.  They have a lot of other great recieps on the website I can use them with as well.

      @Bethany Heinrich This shipment was about $100 but they vary based on the culinary products in the shipment.  When I broke it down, I would pay more at the store for equal quality products.  So I feel that it was a good price for the quality of the full-size products they send.  I had enough to make these recipes more than once, and enough to share with my foodie friends.
