Great Grilled Eggplant Yesterday I finally published a rather extensive look at the Barberas tasted during my visits to Piedmont earlier this year. In that review I mentioned how wonderfully Barbera pairs with grilled veggies, even the most simply prepared recipes. I love the zing of Barbera's acid with grilled vegetables and fine olive oil but perhaps the best partner for all that acid might very well be the slightly astringent flavor of eggplant.

Now in season, and abundant as usually, reliable old eggplant really transforms itself when grilled and garnished. Each and every one of the recipes that follows is a winner and showcases the beauty of eggplant. it can serve as the centerpiece for so many recipes, and is a nice change of pace from a meat based meal. While I would love a Barbera with any of these dishes, they also pair effortlessly with a broad range of wines. Lets take a look and see why some of the pairings are so successful!
