How to pair food & wine like a pro!
The Drink Talking is so excited to once again be working alongside gastronomic Chef, Kian Lian, to serve you an exclusive evening of wine and food pairing techniques & taste sensations!
Food and wine are like Lennon and McCartney, French & Saunders, Gin and Tonic – they are perfect together – if you let them be. Without graduating with a master sommelier degree, here’s an evening to help you make the ideal wine choice the next time you are eating out or serving a meal you have prepared for friends and family
First – learn the theory!
We’ll kick the night off with welcome sparkling wine, followed by a tasting of 4 wines which demonstrate an array of styles: crisp & fresh whites, off dry wines, tannic reds, sweet wines.
How are wines effected by certain components in food? We’ll break it down together, learning the theory and tasting the affects of:
- acidic foods
- umami (savoury flavour)
- sweet foods
This will arm you with the skills of the professionals: you will know which food and wines are the dream teams; as well as which specific foods and wines should be avoided.
Second – taste the wines with the perfect dishes!
While you’re getting to grips with the science, Chef Kian will be busy preparing you 4 perfect small plates to pair with these wines. You will spend the rest of the evening enjoying your wines as we serve you beautiful dishes to match.
Here’s what Kian will be cooking up for you…
