EASTER Food & Wine Matching Workshop (SOUTHAMPTON)
Have you ever wondered which wine to serve at your dinner party, what to order at a restaurant or what goes well with lamb or what to drink with your Easter Lunch? – well, this is the tasting for you!
The evening is aimed at demonstrating which wines go well with different types of food, with a special emphasis on Easter delights. Our detailed food and wine matching workshop will help you understand which wines to pair with a wide variety of meat, poultry, fish, vegetarian dishes as well as cheeses, desserts and chocolates ... well, it is Easter after all ;-)
This particular workshop is all about trying to find the ideal match between each carefully selected nibbles and specifically chosen wine. Pairing food with wine should be easy and fun, yet so many people become stressed at the idea of make a wine faux-pas. Yet the best part about pairing food with wine is the experimentation and delights at finding a pairing that YOU enjoy.
The matching of food and wine is a matter of personal taste. There are no hard and fast rules, but just remember it is easiest to think of wine as a sauce and match the strength of flavours and weight of the dish with the wine. To learn more, join us on our mouth-watering workshop!
Every tasting is different, but this is what you might expect to taste on the night:
We might start with a refreshing, crisp, unoaked Chablis with delicious smoked salmon and creme fraiche. Lighter, elegant reds (Pinot Noir) to accompany simple but tasty rich meat pate, and heavier, spicier reds (Bordeaux blends and Rhone Valley blends) that match perfectly with complex-flavoured lamb dishes with herbs and garlic as well as plates of charcuterie. We will conclude with sweet and tangy wines that surprisingly go as well with blue cheeses (eg Stilton and Roquefort) as they do with fruit-based desserts and chocolates.
After the workshop you will have a good basis of knowledge that will help you combine wines with food and enhance your eating pleasure! All the tasting food & wine is included in the price.
