Food For Thought

…but the clientele in this story is correct…wine pairings criteria is often times more about the intangible circumstances such as mood and the spirit of the occasion, than it is about complementing the food.

“When making a recommendation…I consider the total experience wine delivers, rather than dwelling on the components or details, such as flavor, grapes or styles.  I call this “Wine by Mood”.  Decide what you’re in the mood for first…we understand this in music-if we’re in the mood for jazz, we pick a jazzy tune, and enjoy it without knowing details about the song or how it was constructed”.  We experience wine emotionally in the same way…” -Billy Munnelly’s Annual wine Handbook…Canada’s best selling wine book.

    Thanks for popping in and checking out my blog 🙂 I agree, I don’t always go with the whole wine pairing with food. I know what I like and when I like what I like, and I stick with that! Every now and again, I try something new!
