So ok, here’s me going out on that limb telling everyone that I had no idea that food and wine matching was such a tremendous thing.
Who was supposed to tell me that all of this was happening with foods and wines?
But people have become ravenously adept at pairing foods and wines.
And in this new world, there are few rules.
Remember the days when the classic pasta dish was paired with the classic red wine?
Those days are completely over and the wine companies are the ones enabling this exciting new way of thinking. Why indeed should a certain dish automatically be paired with a certain type of wine when really, there are no rules to this that have to be followed! Is this the time to break with centuries worth of tradition to achieve the right food and wine balance?
And isn’t that the absolute fun here?
You now see the cable cooking shows that prepare wonderful recipes and then dare you to pair that up with an unexpected wine.
This is a new world to the old thinkers!
Food and wine matching is now being encouraged to have as much of your fingerprint on it as does your recipe book. The wine companies want you to be daring and bold and they really want you to express how you match your favorite foods with your favorite wines. They want this to be a lot of fun…and you know what…it really should be!
Food and wine matching is now a very daring, very open ended event. let yourself go when you start to dream up a new pairing.
If the old ways are indeed the old ways, let the new ways be all about adventure. Break the mold. Set your own standards.
Pairing foods and wines is all about expression. Let yourself be yourself and be bold.
