Wine and Food Pairing dinner with Catherine Reynolds & 11 wine pairing tips!

How to pair wine with food

I will admit it now. I know nothing about wine and food pairing. Thankfully I have a friend who does, and has a lovely business selling wine to local Seattle people.

I first met Catherine over a year ago when I hosted and cooked a Seattle Food Bloggers Meat Party. The food had some high’s and low’s (totally overcooked some lentils..) but one thing that stayed consistent was the quality of the wine being served, and just how well the wine was paired with the food.

Pimm’s No. 1 cup (cocktail) and Dama Bianca (fennel and celery salad)

Ahhhh Pimm’s. Nothing quite says a lazy day on a river bank, watching a bunch of toff’s row boats down a river. This drink doesn’t quite have the best of images in England. It is quintessentially British, but also has a reputation as a drink for toff’s (posh people with more money than sense). God knows why to be honest – it tastes bloody great, and really isn’t expensive at all.

Whenever the sun comes out, I always end up making this great little cocktail. There are few drinks as honestly refreshing as this one. Pimm’s No.1 is gin that has been infused with herbs and spices. The recipe is a closely guarded secret apparently, so god knows what really goes into it. If you drink it straight, it has quite a herbal note, that is refreshing and somewhat sweet.
