Pairing Wine with Spicy Foods

Chabernet with Chinese, my thought for the day.

Beer pairs well with Chinese

One tidbit I recall is the story of a wealthy Chinese businessman ordering a $3,000 USD French Bordeaux for his guests in a fancy Hong Kong restaurant, and then –get this- accompanied by Coke, 7UP, and ice! Waiter, theres Coke in my wine.

 

(A personal favorite to quaff with spicy Asian food is Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut. If you’ve never consumed this magical wine in the classic black bottle, try it the next time your meal is too spicy for a traditional choice. For example, with our Texas Grilled Shrimp recipe, with a Curry, even with BBQ.)
