    CAVA YATE

    The weather has been consistently sweltering. How have you all been?
    This month, I came up with recipes which minimizes the use of the cooking stove and goes well with sparkling which is especially appealing when it’s hot.


    Basil Sandwich
    NOW is the basil season. Though it’s a little, I have been growing basil in my flowerpot. They taste stronger than those sold in supermarkets and you get to enjoy more authentic flavor of basil. So you might consider growing some yourself!


    Ingredients
    Sandwich Bread
    Butter with Guerande Salt
    Basil Leaves

    Spread the butter on the toasted bread, and stuff a bunch of basil leaves in between the bread slices. Then cut them as you prefer. Simple as this is, the saltiness of butter goes well with Cava Yate creating a perfect match.  Additionally, CO2 in the wine helps lift and enhance the flavor of basil.  Basil fans will just love it!

    Basil Open Omelette
    Ingredients (Serves for 2)
    3 whole eggs
    Boiled broccoli
    Petit tomatoes cut into halves
    Basil leaves
    Salt
    Olive oil
    Butter
    Pepper

    Beat the eggs in a bowl. Mix well until it gets smooth. Melt the butter on the frying pan, and then pour the eggs into the pan. Put the boiled broccoli, and tomatoes on the egg. When the egg is cooked halfway, remove the pan from the stove. Then flavor with salt and pepper. Sprinkle basil right before you eat. Pour olive oil over.

    The essential point is to put lots of basil leaves. This tip would turn the simple omelette into a much more lively and enjoyable dish. As this is a simple dish, please make sure to select high quality olive oil, salt, pepper, and butter, as these ingredients become the focus.

    You don’t need to spend much time in making the sandwiches and omelette. Thus, even on those nights when you don’t feel like cooking, you can enjoy the delicious Cava Yate perfectly matched with out much effort.

     Zodiac Sign of the Month
    Leo 
    July, 23 – August, 22 
     
    Philosophy
    I am
    Character
    Love triumphs over all for this sign, which is ruled by the heart and operates from this dimension too. Charismatic and positive-thinking, they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life's stormy times with style and good humour.
    Once a Lion is committed to a relationship, they are totally devoted and faithful. Should their heart or trust be broken they never forgive or forget.
    Leos are trendsetters, leaders and adventurers. Their weakness is their pride. This is one sign where the saying "flattery will get you everything" applies, but be warned criticism will slam the relationship door right in your face. 
    When it comes to wine, Leos are fishing for compliments. They like to affect know-how through investment. For sure, there are also sophisticated wine gourmets among Lions, who know that a good wine doesn’t have to be the most expensive one.
    Leos are collectors. You will always find quite a few boxes saying “Château” in their cellar, they like to show, but save for special occasions.

    Virgo
    August, 23 – September 22
    Philosophy
    Do the right thing
    Character
    Many Virgos can be found working in the "service to others" industries, ranging from welfare work, doctors, school-teachers through to practising natural forms of healing like massage, herbal remedies etc. One of the most magical characteristics of the Virgo is no matter how many times life or romance turns sour on them; they still manage to maintain faith in others, refusing to become cynical. There is ingenuity around this sign, a kind-heartedness, which unfortunately is sometimes played upon by others for their advantage.
    Shy, Virgos are happy to allow others to take centre-stage and often generate their time and energy into making those they love happy or successful.
    They are givers and when the chips are down and you need advice or companionship, the one available is most likely a Virgo.
    Because they are so deep and reflective themselves, they understand human frailties better than most.
     
    When it comes to wine, Virgos like the unusual. They enjoy difference and are open for new things. They always know everything about the latest trends. This attribute is appreciated by all of their friends. If you want to know which wine fits to you, you should definitely ask a Virgo he/she will know what kind of wine you will like most.
