As part of an all-fried Hanukkah menu, Sara Dickerman came up with this tempura of cold-weather vegetables. The batter is light enough that it doesn’t overshadow the delicate flavors of the vegetables, while the saba adds a nice sweetness. This recipe is pareve.
Beverage pairing: Edmunds St. John Shell & Bone White Paso Robles, California. The cold-weather vegetables in this dish have a pleasing, earthy sweetness, which will be reflected by the nutty, mellow fruit in the wine. But this blend of Roussanne and Viognier also has a spicy acidity that keeps the pairing from being heavy.
