Virtual FESTIVE Food & Wine Matching Workshop - A CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (ONLINE TASTING)
Have you ever wondered which wine to serve during your Christmas lunch or what goes well with cold turkey on Boxing Day? – well this is the tasting for you!
The evening is aimed at demonstrating which wines go well with different types of food - ESPECIALLY WITH CHRISTMAS FOOD IN MIND! Our detailed food and wine matching workshop will help you understand which wines to pair with a wide variety of meat, poultry (turkey and stuffing included, of course), fish vegetarian dishes as well as desserts (mince pies too!) and cheese.
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!
After the workshop you will have a good basis of knowledge that will help you combine wines with food and enhance your eating pleasure. It is THE ideal occasion to learn about how to pair Christmas food & wine a few weeks before the real event. And with sommelier Cecile at the rescue, all your questions shall be answered on ZOOM in a professional way, thanks to her many years of food & wine pairing expertise.
All YOU have to do is purchase a ticket by clicking the "BOOK" button, as you would normally. A ticket entitles ALL members of your household to join in. There is no need to buy one ticket per person. Once your ticket purchased, you will receive a confirmation email with your ZOOM web link and password 2 days before the event itself.
I would recommend buying in advance: I have put together a very special case of 3 half-bottles and 1 50cl bottle of my favourite wines for Christmas pairings. This carefully selected case is available at the discounted price of £40 from Frazier's Wine Merchants. This case can be delivered within mainland UK for only £5.95. Click here to order direct from their website.
And do not forget about the food! Please prepare a food platter with the following nibbles: slices of cold turkey, cold stuffing, port salut cheese, mature cheddar cheese, slices of saucisson with a black pepper rind or slices of roast beef with black pepper, some smoked salmon, fresh lemon wedges, mince pies and a piece of chocolate yule log.
Let's bring some wine & food pairing festive fun to your living-room! ;-)
