What to drink with sausages?

What wine goes well with sausages? Simply look for ones that are as elemental, casual and juicy as the sausages themselves. With Italian sausages, you’ll most likely want a red, and for warm-weather grilling it ought to enjoy a light chill. Translation: avoid tannins and oaky flavors. What does that leave? Only much of the low-priced red wine universe. Allow me to make a list, beginning in Italy: barbera, dolcetto, Valpolicella, Chianti, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, to name a few. If grilling French sausages, you might start with Beaujolais, or an easygoing Chinon or Bourgueil.


Makes about 21/2 pounds


• 1/2 cup sliced green onion
• 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
• 2 tablespoons salted butter
• 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces
• 1 large pear or apple, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks (about 1 cup)
• 1 tablespoon freshly ground coriander seed
• 1/4 cup fruity white wine
• 4 tablespoons fresh basil
• 2 tablespoons chopped tarragon or mint
• 11/2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
• 2 teaspoons freshly ground white pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon ground mace


Chop the fresh herbs just before you mix them in.
Wilt the green onion and garlic in the butter, then toss lightly with the chicken and remaining ingredients, and grind the mixture in a meat grinder or food processor.
