Any good, small fresh pork sausages can be used in place of the traditional diots, a regional specialty that is rarely seen outside the Savoie. French-style fresh pork sausages can be mail-ordered from the French Butcher,212-725-4165.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prick the sausages all over with a fork. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the sausages and cook over moderately low heat until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat. Add the shallots and wine and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are tender and the wine has reduced slightly, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Step 2

Wine Recommendation: A medium-bodied white Rhône with honeyed fruit will echo the rich sausages and sweet shallots. Try the 1998 Jean-Luc Columbo Les Figuières Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc.
