Food & Wine Pairing

I love wine.  I love food.  What I find amazing is that a great dish and a great wine, when enjoyed together, can create a synergy that is magical and greater than the sum of its parts.  How does this happen?  I am not entirely sure but am committed to learning more and understanding how and why this magic happens.  Thankfully I love to cook and am eager to experiment with a variety of ingredients and recipes in this quest.  And the drinking wine part ain’t so bad either.

See posts below about my explorations in food & wine pairing.
