When one says wine, everyone automatically assumes fancy meal. This discrimination has tainted the good name of wine for a while and it has caused great damage to our taste buds. This labeling is something that we need to get rid of and that is exactly what we will be doing today. We will be breaking down barriers and giving you some pairings that will work for the most unusual culinary delights.
Meats and red
When you think of red meat, all you can think of is red wine. This is partly true, while most reds such as pinot noir Australia or bordeaux will work, they will truly work better with earthy dishes heavy with mushrooms, artichoke and such. What works brilliantly with meat is Cabernet, which will allow for the true flavor of the meat an it’s sides to be complimented.
Cheese and white
Cheese and wine is a pairing that has been cemented by the culinary gods. Another gift from the gods is any dish made with cheese, it truly is a ray of sunshine. But when we say cheese and wine, we don’t mean brie and fondue but we mean the cheesy dishes we consider as comfort food. For me, grilled cheese with mature cheddar is the go to, this paired with a bottle of chilled flavorful chardonnay wine will really make a good meal. The tangy creaminess of the cheese will be easily complimented by the wine which will boast a slight sweet undertone. If grilled cheese is not your cup of tea, then might a suggest a nice bowl of mac and cheese. It has a similar flavor of the grilled cheese but with a creamier element and the same wine pairing will still apply. The pairing will actually work well with most cheese dishes such as nachos, quiches and so on. When it comes to cheese, you need to find a suitable choice that will not overpower the flavor of the cheese but will also give it an interesting boost.When it comes to wine, we need to not think fancy meal. We have made a few suggestions that will help you bring in your love g=for wine into the modern world culinary treats or least the treat you can make at the end of a busy day without a great muss and fuss. What you need to realise is that wine parings work differently for each person and it all depends on the who is savoring. You would be surprised at some of the pairings that could end up working for you.
