TASTE News Service, July 28, 2020 – Everybody at Taste publications enjoys consuming tasty food. After all, that’s presumed.  

Most of us also enjoy prepping and cooking it, especially when grilling is involved.  From time to time we’ll publish a recipe created by one of our contributors. At other times, we’ll find inspiration from promotional boards and food producers.  When we run a recipe from one of these entities, we try to reproduce it exactly as written. If that includes a brand name, so be it, but the recipe is an editorial feature, not paid advertising.  Such is the case with today’s Tropical Kabobs which we obtained from Diestel Turkey. Preparation takes half-an-hour to 45 minutes, but your kabobs should only need 5 to 7 minutes on the grill.

Wine suggestion: Why not get out of that Chardonnay rut? We say try a Gewürztraminer. Two of the best produced in this country are from Navarro (Mendocino County) and Stony Hill (Napa).
