Food and Wine Pairing: Lobster Rolls

August 5th, 2016

It’s beach time in the northeast and nothing says beach vacation like lobster rolls. Here’s a recipe or two and some pairing recommendations. [level-members]

For a basic, classic recipe, it’s tough to beat this one (or variations thereof) from Bon Appetit.

If Food & Wine is to be believed, Mainers prefer to add a bit of spice.

Pairing these with wine isn’t has tough as some people would have you believe. Any full-bodied white should work, particularly if there’s some acidity. And Champagne or a similar bubbly is tough to beat not just for how it pairs with lobster rolls, but fow how, well, decadent a combination they are.
