Yeah, just like every hot chick wants "a guy with a great sense of humor."

You can make La Tour d'Argent's sommelier look like a hobo licking a subway train floor and have handled more fecund cheese than Heart's road crew, but if you look like an angel that fell from heaven and landed face-first on a barbed-wire fence you're still going to be tearfully contemplating how deep the holes go on that fine aged Swiss at the end of the night.

Wine paring is generally total BS. I'm good friends with a guy who runs a wine shop that also serves dinner. And I know all his wine reps (who obviously know their stuff). Go to their free wine tastings every Saturday.

Never is wine paring with food brought up. We discuss the qualities of each wine, and they know there's generally not a "good" or "bad" wine in the hundreds of varietes they sell. Its all what you like.

Also has an outdoor courtyward where people eat. Hence, if you wanted a good Spanish wine... he'd never recommend a thick, red tempranillo if you're going to be sitting in the New Orleans heat. Its a great wine (my favorite)... but god no, never in the summer.

Also, if you ask for a "good" rose... he's not going to recommend his favorite. He's going to ask you want you like... fruity, dry, bold, light... and then give you a recommendation.

Because everyone is different.

And paring wines with food is just silly. If you like the wine, it pairs well with whatever you want to eat. The end.

I don't care if it's Boones Farm and Lance Cheese and Crackers....I'm doing one to get drunk, I'm doing the other cause I'm hungry.


I'd be lying if I said I did it for the taste....professional wine snobs can't even tell the diff between wines. How much of a snob do you have to be to think you are better then the french?

No shiat, being able to cook and cook well has consistently gotten me tail that should be out of my league. What is with the wine pairing bullshiat, sure certain wines can go well with certain dishes but really drink what you want. If you like the taste of the wine you'll like it with pretty much anything.

/Really just pick a good wine. You'll look like you know what you are talking about.
 
2012-07-07 04:38:35 PM  
glad others have beaten me to it.

i don't think it is the pairing ability so much as the cooking itself.

I do find myself turned off by adults who eat like 3 year olds. Can still remember sitting across from a guy who whined and picked EVERY single vegetable off the plate. I mean a few sauteed onions and peppers that you could barely see that were more a part of the sauce than anything else. He never even tasted anything to see if maybe he liked it. Nope, not even lettuce or tomato on a burger.

Dude would not eat a single vegetable or piece of fruit. No seafood, nothing ethnic. Basically beef, chicken, and potato dishes prepared as bland as possible. But lots of beer to wash it down.

What a complete turn off. I don't expect everyone to like every food and I am not looking to be impressed by someone eating fish eyeballs or cow brains but at least try a few new dishes once in a while. Geez! I mean it is chicken but just prepared with different spices or flavorings. I will taste any vegetable or fruit dish regardless of the cuisine or culture. I will try any dish with a main ingredient I am familiar with (beef, lamb, chicken, fish, shellfish) that is cooked in another style of cuisine.

But as far as food/beverage pairings I say drink whatever you like with the dish. I am more about the food than any beverage served with it.

If you are the person always looking for the steak or burger on the menu that is definitely a deal breaker.

As a professional alkie (aka: I work for
a liquor distributor) I would like to say, never have truer words been spoken (or at least typed).

If you are'nt starting at at least a solid 6, cooking, bartending, and/or having a great taste in music will only get you so far. The trick to getting class-A women is to either look like a Michaelangelo sculpture, have rock-star levels of self confidenece, have f*ck-you money, or all of the above.
 
2012-07-07 05:02:34 PM  
I'm sure this has nothing to do with the fact that people who learn all the made-up rules about what wine goes with what cheese are typically wealthy.
