How to Make It

Step 1

Combine carrots, garlic cloves, and about 1/2 cup water in a medium pan over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until carrots are just tender when pierced, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a glass measure, mix olive oil, vinegar, caraway, and harissa. Mash the cooked garlic cloves with a fork and whisk into dressing. Pour over warm carrots and mix gently to coat. Add salt to taste. Let cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Mound carrot mixture onto plates and surround with kalamata olives and feta cheese.

Step 4

Wine pairing: Peppery Syrah, with solid dark fruit, herb, and olive flavors. Best in our pairing: Stolpman 2003 (Santa Ynez Valley, CA; $25), Syncline Milbrandt Vineyard 2004 (Columbia Valley, WA; $22), and Qupé 2004 (Central Coast, CA; $16).

Step 5

Flavor bridges: Bitterness in wine can balance sweetness in carrots, or, as chef Briwa puts it, "Bitterness can make things taste grown-up." The olive flavors you can find in a Syrah do it for this dish; herbal notes keep step with the caraway. Deep, concentrated fruit flavors in the wine soften the spicy harissa.
