Sweet Potatoes with Horseradish Sourcream, Panchetta & Soft Boiled Eggs

Posted March 29, 2021


Our fourth food and wine pairing in this series is the 2019 Lion's Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling which another_food_blogger has matched with this dish of Sweet Potatoes with Horseradish Sourcream, Panchetta & Soft Boiled Eggs. 

The central track of clean and long acidity with boysenberry and raspberry flavours running alongside exquisitely fine and graudual tannins in our Lion's Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling is the perfect accompaniment to this slightly creamy Egg/Sweet Potato salad combination. 

Enjoy.

    Essential Tools

    • Baking tray
    • Chef knives
    • Chopping board
    • Measuring utensils
    • Mixing bowl x 2
    • Frying pan
    • Saucepan

    Tips/Tricks

    • Adding salt & lemon (you can squeeze the juice into the water) will guarantee you 99/100 eggs you make will de-shell easily
    • Eggs, sourcream & sage can all be made in advance – store the eggs & sourcream in the fridge and the sage in an airtight container in a dry place
    • You want pancetta “lardons” so have your deli slice it ½ cm thick like thick cut bacon and then cut them into little matchsticks
    • When making the crispy sage keep an eye on it as they will burn quickly
    • When roasting the sweet potatoes you can do them in wedges or cut them into smaller cubes – whatever suits. Just adjust the cooking times as appropriate
