Tips on the Pairing of Wine

Toronto catering companyThe sign of a good Toronto corporate catering company is the ability to offer you advice on the pairing of wine with the food being prepared for your event.

Certain types of food do not go well with certain types of wines. Do you know why red wine does not pair well with fish? Red wines contain tannin and when combined with fish will leave a metallic taste in your mouth. Can you imagine what a dinner disaster this would create?

Wine should either compliment or contrast your food. Wine pairing with food requires the understanding of the chemical elements present in the wine and the components of the food. What are the ingredients in the food? How is the food cooked and what is the taste and texture of the finished food? A caterer must be a good cook and a sommelier at the same time to be able to combine food and wine. The objective is to make food and wine taste better when consumed together.

Consider the following simple guide to wine pairing for your personal needs:

1. Red wine for beef, cheese, cured meats, duck, lamb, pasta, pizza, risotto.

2. White wine for chicken, fish, shell fish and turkey.

3. Sweet wine for desserts
