ROASTED BONE MARROW with Black Truffle Salt

Dear mitra (friend),

This summer, fold in romance into the sultry twilight BBQ, with a sensory wine, savory bone marrow sizzling on the grill that secretly laced with Umami, and a sultry summer playlist, created exclusively for you, rendering a fiery spark.
We're talking about smoldering, mesmerizing fire. It dances. It destroys. Who hasn't been entranced by its transformative tricks—it's ability to caramelize everyday crackling vegetables into sweetly charred morsels; to plump raw meat to juicy, pink perfection? Like a lover's spell, fire renders its subjects irresistible to all five senses.

SPICE & RECIPE - Roasted Bone Marrow with Black Truffle Salt

ROASTED BONE MARROW

LXV Spice Pairing
Black Truffle Salt, Savory All Spice, Ginger, Nutmeg
(Complimentary with the purchase of LXV Wine)

Ingredients
- 8 to 12 center-cut beef or veal marrow bones, preferably cut lengthwise 
- 4 tbsp Canola Oil 
- Salt & Pepper for seasoning 
- 1 packet LXV Spice Blend

Recipe
Turn BBQ on high and let heat to 500F.
Rub each bone down with canola oil & sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on BBQ for a short 45 seconds, then remove and place on roasting pan. (If the bones are cut crosswise, place them standing up; if the bones are cut lengthwise, place them cut side up. )
Preheat Oven to 500F. Sprinkle LXV Spice Blend on the marrows. Cook in oven on center rack for 15-25 mins. To test for done ness, insert a metal skewer into the center of the bone. There should be no resistance when the skewer is inserted and some of the marrow will have started to leak from the bones.
Serve the roasted bone marrow right away with a glass of LXV Lover's Spell

Other Pairing Suggestions
For the Wine
Foods that call for a wine with heartiness and structure, but not astringency - Braised meats (beef or venison), roasted meats, briskets, mushroom sauce.
For the Spice Blend
Sprinkle a little on any course: With bread and butter, on some fresh steamed vegetables, with popcorn, on mushroom ravioli. You could even sneak it into your creme brulee for a little sultry depth.

WINE - LXV Lover's Spell
Ah, Lover's Spell!
Inspired by Aindrajala, the KamaSutra art of Magic, LXV Wine's 2013 Lover's Spell is strong enough to stand alongside this rich, seductive entree. A dynamic ruby red union of Cabernet and Syrah cascades into the glass, flirting first with the eye.
Subtle hints of cedar, cigar box, and violet beckon the nose to chase this playful minx. Like a first kiss, the first sip tingles in the mouth as it warms in the belly. This bottle of elegant LXV Wine blooms into a wave of ripe figs, succulent Damson plums, and black cherry bliss.
Like moth to flame, you are now within the grasp of a smoldering spell. If you're lucky, it will rage on into the balmy night.

Decant LXV Lover's Spell for at least an hour, in a cool dark place. For a hot day, place the decanter in the refrigerator for 5 mins before serving.
