One of the most fun parts of cooking a delicious meal is figuring out the right wine to pair with it. Wine used to be a stuffy and intimidating subject. I hope that through this page, you’ll realize that wine can be very approachable and also really highlight your meal when paired correctly. Wine can be as complex as the most tediously prepared meal–but that doesn’t mean that it has to be scary!
I want to help decipher why certain wines pair well with different foods. I don’t believe in the old wine rules and i’m here to give you some spark notes versions of wine selection to elevate your food. You can go to your local sommelier to get the luxury bottle recommendation, that’s not what i’m aiming to do in this space. The wines that we’ll focus on will be affordable, approachable, and most importantly: delicious. I’m hoping that through these posts, you’ll realize that a “really great wine” doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Perhaps you’ll surprise yourself and actually step outside of your comfort zone to try something new. Who knows…maybe we’ll get wild and do some beer pairings as well?
