A General Guide to Food and Wine Pairings
Posted October 13th, 2010 | 0 Comments
The holiday season is upon us again and that means, lots of food, wine and celebration. If you are the hosting type, you'll likely be planning your upcoming parties and guest lists already and beyond that, your menus. While there are no ironclad rules where food and wine pairings are concerned, there are certainly some simple guidelines that will help make your dinner parties easier and assist in a seamless party season.
Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with tangy/tart dishes as well as smoked or grilled meats and fish.
Chardonnay has the wonderful ability to compliment fatty fish, like salmon, as well as roast chicken, lobster and pasta in a rich, lush sauce.
A rich and rustic Zinfandel is fantastic with pâtés, mousses and terrines.
When in doubt, think about pairing the wine with its region. For example, if you plan on making a Tuscan inspired dish, a beautiful Italian Chianti would be a natural fit.
And of course, no celebration would be complete without a toast of Sparkling Wine which will conclude any dessert course with utter panache.
