Purpose: To pair wine with a complimentary partner - food - to bring out the best in each other.
Concept: For people who enjoy and appreciate good food with good wine to share with others their pairing of food and wine ideas.
The Idea: Bring four to five couples together to share each other's food and wine pairing ideas. Each couple selects a wine to pair with a food of their choice. The food is to be complimented by the wine to bring out the best in each.
Implementing It:
  • Get four to five couples who enjoy good food and good wine and set a date.
  • Each couple selects a wine and a food that they think or know will pair with each other.
  • During the course of the evening each couple prepares a small plate of food (tapa) to pair with a small serving of wine.
  • The order of serving will depend on the wine and food each couple selects. Go from light wine to a heavy wine.
  • This is a non-competitive event. No grading of the food nor wine pairing will occur.
  • Just enjoy each others wine and food pairing and each others company!
