Food & Wine Pairing – The Very Height of Decadence?

April 27th, 2018

We’ve got a really great burger place in our town. And they make great fries. So what does that have to do with wine? [level-members]

Everything if you’re in the mood for what we might call down-home decadence: french fries and Champagne.

There’s only one rule: keep it simple. Forget the cheese fries or anything else that resembles nachos with fries instead of tortilla chips. All you need is salt, fat, and bubbles.

I’m not sure I’d make a meal of this, or make it a regular part of my diet, but for an every once in a while indulgence, there are worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon or a Sunday brunch.

Just plan on a post-indulgence nap!
