Let’s clear up a few things about what food works with wine and what doesn’t
- Bread and cheese -Yes. The cheese provides protein to counterbalance the alcohol.
- Grana – always a nice finishing touch. Refer to above…
Cleansing the palate: A small shot of Beer works well at times.
- Sugar, fruit and other incompatibles: I’ve never understood the ‘chocolate and red wine’ pretension. The same with ‘strawberries ‘n Champagne’— a great way to ruin perfectly fine Bubbly
- Tomatoes and Red wine: No-No. A bit like tomatoes cooked in aluminum. They don’t go.
