When it comes to pairing wine with food, we all have our favorites. Whether you’re eating something sweet, salty or spicy, try think of “refreshing” when pairing a wine with it. Here, Leslie shares some of her favorite tips when pairing wine with food.
A Food and Wine pairing tip from Leslie: Match the texture or feel of the food and wine: Delicate foods with delicate wines and big foods with big wines. (Think leather pants with a sweater and linen pants with a cotton shirt.) It’s not the outdated mantra of red wine with meat and white with fish; it’s about the weight of the food and wine in your mouth.
