Steven Raichlen's Project Fire

Wine Country Grill

Season 1, Episode 1 of 12

The deep connection between wine and barbecue dates back millennia and still runs deep as ever. In the rustic wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley where we tape Project Fire, grape vines are used as fuel and wine for marinades and sauces. Here's how the fruit of the vine meets the power of fire. First up: special Jidori-breed chicken breasts stuffed with country ham and dry-aged Sonoma Jack cheese grilled over a grape vine fire. Next, flank steak with Pinot Noir mushroom sauce grilled over charcoal and oak. Finally, chef John Cox from the Bear and Star restaurant smokes a whole bourbon-soaked wagyu strip loin that's been aged three years. GRAPEVINE-GRILLED CHICKEN BREASTS WITH PROSCIUTTO AND MONTEREY JACK; WINE-MARINATED FLANK STEAK WITH PINOT NOIR MUSHROOM SAUCE; BOURBON-AGED STRIP LOIN SMOKED OVER OAK.
