This month Carolyn Joy (of Joy Wine and Spirits) and I are joined in studio by Sergio Negrin of Frijoles Colorado, a one of a kind Cuban restaurant in Lakewood.  Together they put together an amazing feast for the palette. Carolyn brings a Gerard Bertrand Cap Insula French red wine to pair with Sergio’s Ropa Vieja (shredded skirt steak) in a tomato wine sauce with saffron rice and sweet plantains.
