Welcome to my food and wine matching blog which is all about having a bit of fun with both traditional and contemporary recipes and then finding great wines to accompany them, whether it be for a posh dinner party, a casual weekend lunch at home, a seasonal occasion or just a weekday supper. Recipes come at us from all over the world nowadays as do the wines and there are so many potential matches to experiment with. By using a few tried and tested ideas as guidelines and throwing in a bit of ‘whatever you fancy’ a world of gourmet enjoyment is to be had! The one principle that, for me, should constantly be referred to is the fact that, in regions where wine has been produced for centuries, or even just decades, the inhabitants have built up a pretty good idea of which recipes work well with the wines of the locale. We should bear this in mind.
So, do drop in to the blog. If you have some great food and wine matches to share, let me know. And feel free to comment if I’m struggling to find the ideal pairing – I’d love to hear your ideas.
