Wintery, Cheesy Comfort Recipes & Wine Pairings

Cabot Cheese Recipes and Wine Sisterhood Wine Pairings

Winter. Most of us are still in the thick of it. Fortunately, it is the best time of year to keep the kitchen nice and toasty with home-cooked, hearty meals from the oven.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Cabot Cheese to bring you a handful of comforting winter recipes, with wine pairings to match, that will be sure to warm you up in no time.

Other than their fabulously tasty cheddar and dairy products, we love that Cabot is a cooperative owned by dairy farm families throughout New England and Upstate New York. Their cheese, yogurt, dips, butter and whipped cream help take all of our favorite recipes over the top! Check out the store finder to find Cabot products near you.

Enjoy these delicious recipes with a few favorite wines:  

Smothered Pork Chops with Tall Dark Stranger Malbec

Chops & Malbec

Smothered Pork Chops with Mashed Cheddar Buttercup Squash with Tall Dark Stranger Malbec

Make melt-in-your-mouth pork chops when you bake them in a rich sauce featuring onions, garlic, and spices. Pair these chops with a batch of mashed buttercup squash*, featuring Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar. Then, pour yourself a glass of Tall Dark Stranger Malbec to top off your meal! (*If you can’t find buttercup squash, try kabocha, butternut squash or your favorite winter squash.)

Vegetable Chili with Girl & Dragon Pinot Grigio

Fiery Chili & Vino

Andrew Worthen’s Chicken and Vegetable Garden Chili with Girl & Dragon Pinot Grigio

Cold temperatures call for chili! Lighten things up with this chicken-based recipe that’s packed with veggies. Top it with Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, shredded, Cabot Sour Cream or Cabot Plain Greek-Style Yogurt, tortilla chips and chopped fresh cilantro to serve.

Chile con Queso with Purple Cowboy Cabernet

Queso & Cab

Chile con Queso with Purple Cowboy Trail Boss Cabernet

Here at the Wine Sisterhood, we believe queso should be enjoyed during every season of the year, but there’s something about dipping into a batch when the weather is cool that makes it extra special. Whether it’s game day, or any old day, pair this recipe with a glass of Purple Cowboy Trail Boss Cabernet. You can thank us later.

Find all of these recipes and more in the Cabot recipe archive. Cheers to finishing out the season on a very delicious note!
