Riesling Goes With Everything, and Sixteen Other Rules for Pairing Wine with Food.

Riesling Goes With Everything, and Sixteen Other Rules for Pairing Wine with Food.

Meg Houston Maker is a food and wine blogger and recently posted this piece in Palate Press. I thought I would pass it along since I feel she gives some really good tips for beginners.  As I said in my bio, trial and error leads to knowledge.  As you develop more of a sense of the qualities of certain wines and how they blend with your food, you will develop your own “rules,” which I hope are flexible.  I really liked how Meg talked about how the knowledge and experience gained from cooking for years helps. It allows you discern nuances in the wine and what flavors compliment each other.  She did not, nor does anyone, gain this kind of insight over night.  So, be gracious with yourself and enjoy the journey. If you missed this post originally, here is a bit more encouragement to enjoy the exploration: Calling All Wallflowers.  Want to learn more about Riesling?  Check out Sprechen Sie Riesling?

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
