Pair Up - July 2018

There are five flavors: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami (read: savory). One of the reasons I like pairing wines with recipes that have umami flavored ingredients is because their savory flavors balance sour flavors found in the wine. Mushrooms, meats, and nuts are all great examples of foods that are dominated by the umami flavor, and they all go quite nicely with wine.

My goal is to create pairings that enhance the flavor of each component. I want to empower you to make your own beverage selections by providing you with the style and flavor profile leaving the producer and price up to you and your trusted retailer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me via email.
La Sommelierre is on Twitter
Each month I post a link to the monthly articles on Twitter. Historically, I have posted wine-related information. Most often, I posted food and wine pairings, but sometimes just interesting facts on wines, wine making or the grapes themselves. Check them out and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.
