As I prepared for our picpoul blanc tasting I was searching for some perfect pairings. Picpoul-de-Pinet is from the south of France, the Languedoc-Roussillon region along the Mediterranean Sea, so I was searching for dishes that spoke of place. Briny oysters were definitely on the list. I headed to the Picpoul-de-Pinet web site and was able to find a recipe for Croquettes de Brandade These are salt cod croquettes that are a specialty in Languedoc and Provençe. This recipe turned out to just be the starting point as it called for “400 g de brandade de morue”, and that of course, was not something I knew how to find. I search a little more and found a recipe I could work with.
Here is the recipe we came up with!
