At our Mt. Beautiful Two Rivers Cafe & Wine Tasting Room in Central Cheviot our Chef, Kate Rapson, ensures that menu selections our regulars have grown to expect are prepared lovingly and consistently with the highest quality ingredients she can source.
That said, Kate has a creative side that she loves exercising through developing recipes. Presenting new and exciting offerings keeps our guests delighted and engaged.
We recently tasked her with the challenge of developing a series of recipes to pair with Mt. Beautiful’s wines. Kate came up with this mouthwatering recipe for Vietnamese Beef Salad paired with our 2018 Mt. Beauitful Rosé.
Before you eagerly start your recipe prep, make certain to chill a bottle (or two!) to enjoy with this delicious creation.
