Wine and Food Pairing 101 | Boston Wine School @ Lantera Boston Landing
December 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$69.00
It’s a thing, Food and Wine Pairing, an art.
We’ve all been there, in the restaurant looking at the food menu then looking at the wine menu and having no clue what wine to order. Or being invited to dinner and having no clue what wine to bring.
If you get it wrong your art is a failure, it doesn’t taste “right”, doesn’t gel, but when you do succeed and get it right it’s one of the best things to behold. The marriage of flavours from food and wine become one, complementing each other to form harmony on your palate.
Boston Wine School is here to help answer those questions and more. This interactive tasting guides you through choosing the perfect pairings for any occasion as well as providing the key characteristics of varietals and the principles behind pairing them. Learn why certain combinations work and some don’t, how to avoid common pitfalls, and how to develop successful food and wine pairings on your own.
We can’t promise you will become the world’s greatest master sommelier by taking this class. But you will have earned a newfound confidence in your culinary couplings.
An assortment of cheeses and antipasto will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food.
