Perfect Pairs

Food & Wine

What type of dish do you need help pairing?

Pairing food and wine can bring out the best qualities in each. It is an art, not a science, and therefore rigid rules need not always be followed. Who says you can't have red wine with fish? What's important is to consider the dominant characteristics of the dish as a whole. I have put together a guide of perfect pairings based on some common dish types.
