Cook’n with Class Brandade “Souffle”
Brandade de morue is salted cod, a traditional way of preserving the fish. You can buy prepared brandade (the salt removed and the cod whipped into a paste) prepared in most grocery stores in Provence. Or you can soak the fish to remove the salt as per this recipe.
Cook’n with Class sommelier Frédérique Duverger of Cannes You Taste, provided this wine pairing to go with the recipe. “I would suggest for the Brandade de morue, a white wine from the Loire Valley west coast : Fief Vendéen Brem, Domaine Saint Nicolas, Cuvée Haut des Clous. It is a 100% Chenin, dry and crisp white wine that would match perfectly with the richness and saltiness of the dish.”

*De-salting cod is easy. Put the fish in a bowl and cover with water. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, put it in the refrigerator and allow it to soak overnight. The next day drain the water and the fish should be ready to use in your brandade recipe.
