Food and Wine Pairing 101
We bring you 7 tasty dishes to go with your favourite wines.
One way to surely impress dates or dinner party guests is knowing how to pair a good wine with delicious food, without spoiling the flavours of either.
To eliminate the guesswork, here are 7 dishes you can pair with some of your favourite wines.
7 Wine and Food Pairs to Try:
Pinot Grigio: This wine can be found dry or sweet, but fish is always a good choice with Pinot Grigio. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try a Lagaria Pinot Grigio with some Homemade Tuna Tataki.
Pinot Noir: Pinot noir is known for its versatility when it comes to food pairings. There isn’t much that you can’t pair with a good noir like Sokol Blosser’s. Try it with Julie van Rosendaal’s take on Coq au Vin.
Cabernet Sauvignon: This full-bodied red wine is best served with beef or lamb. We love the pairing of a Shafer Vineyard Hillside Select variety with a Pepper-Crusted Prime Rib with Green Peppercorn Cream.
Zinfandel: This wine can come in a variety of flavours and colours, ranging from medium-bodied to full-bodied. The rich black Zinfandel variety from Brazin is a great pairing for Sunterra Farms Mango Habanero Baby Back Ribs.
