I was at the market a few days ago and there were some good looking veal chops in the butcher case. In this area one has to look hard to find veal so I brought home two that were one inch thick. The result is pictured above. The chops were marinated in lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, garlic, chopped fresh rosemary and red pepper flakes. They were grilled over hardwood charcoal and finished with a little chopped parsley and orange zest. Add in a local tomato and two orange slices with tarragon and it was a meal worth repeating.
For the wine we opted for the last bottle of 2012 Kinkead Ridge Ohio Valley Riesling. It was tart and dry but with some hints of sweetness at the very end. Good match and a fitting meal for that last bottle of any vintage for that particular wine. The vineyard is no more.
