Food and Wine Pairings – Comfort Food for Snowed-In Days

January 3rd, 2014

On days like this – at least what it’s like across most of the Northeast today – it’s hard not to think about great comfort food combinations. Here are a few of our favorites for you to share with the brave souls hearty (or desperate) enough to brave the conditions and make it to your shop. [level-members]

  • Chili is a favorite, but it’s hardly wine-friendly
  • Fondue is fun, especially if the power’s out and you’ve got the little Stern-o thingies ready to go
  • Beef stew. Actually, any stew
  • Homemade mac & cheese
  • Meatloaf
  • Stuffed baked potatoes
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches

Given how NOT healthy many of these things are, I’ll end with a link to Snooth’s recommended food and wine pairings to kick off “the new year with delicious, healthy fare!” It’s good stuff, with some really nice wine suggestions.
