The Lamb Chop Recipe You Need Right Now

At the Riggs Distributing Sub-Zero | Wolf Culinary Events Center, our chefs often create recipes that follow two important rules. The recipes must have 1) great flavor and 2) be easy to replicate.

With this in mind, here are some easy additions to your bottle of bubbles that may become the star of your party and will have you buying sparkling wine year round. 12278643_1925836954309148_3122229842349711667_n Continue reading
