Often times going on vacation means we get to experience different things that we don’t normally at home. A lot of times in my blog I like to talk about getting to bring vacation home with you not only to make it last longer, but to be able to use all these great experiences that you’ve had over and over again for the rest of your life. With that being said one of my absolute favorite vacation memories is getting to do a wine and food pairings dinner in Italy. I love learning about which sorts of wines go with with sorts of cheese and meat combinations. With that being said I have rarely ever used this information at home, aside from drinking red wine with red sauces and red meats and white wine with seafood and chicken I don’t take the time to carefully select my wines to go with my foods.
Taking it one step further I decided to search out the best wine pairings to go with foods we eat in our regular lives. I tried trout brain, snails and tangerine infused risotto in Italy, some of the best foods I have ever eaten, but not anything I make at home. Attached you will find a list of 10 fun foods to pair with wines. This lists includes chips, burgers and tv dinners, much more realistic than trout brain.
Do you have wine that you love to pair with odd ball foods? Let us know I love to hear from our readers! Now I apologize I have to dive head first into this bowl of potatoe chips and my favorite French Champagne.
