Mythbusters: Who says you can’t pair wine with…
Thu, 4 May 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM MDT
Remarkably, there are still those that believe you can’t pair wine with certain cuisines. Perhaps it is because most Asian and Latino cuisines (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Mexican, Central American, etc) evolved in the absence of domestic wine cultures. Or, maybe the unique and distinctive flavours of spices such as cardamom, coriander and tumeric, unfamiliar to the European and North American palates when first introduced to these nations, have created a perception that they are beyond the realm of marrying with wine. Or perhaps it’s the misconception that these cuisines are exceedingly spicy hot. Spice doesn’t just translate to heat, more often it translates to flavour. Fear of failure (in achieving a decent pairing) results in taking the easy way out...beer. It’s time to end the madness!
