SommSeekers sommeliers Junko Yamada and Gary Hulton welcome you on a journey to discover the basics of wine and food pairing.
Whether eating at home or out in a restaurant, choosing wines to match the food can be a challenge, especially given the enormous variety of wines, food choices and personal tastes. In this class, you will learn a few pairing basics that can greatly help make the task easier, more rewarding and fun!
This wine event features five wines: one sparkling, two whites and two reds. Each wine will be paired with an hors d’oeurve. Delving into basic issues—of dry versus sweet, acid and tannin, minerality, texture, fats, oils and spices—we will discover why certain foods and wines go together and why others don’t.
There are no hard and set rules to pairings, just some guidelines, so come along and learn a few more steps in the wine and food dance!
This wine event is being held in conjunction with the Pairings exhbition, curated by Nancy Gesimondo, at Plaxall Gallery, Long Island City. The exhibition opens on Saturday, February 9th from 6-9pm and is on view from February 7th through March 3rd.
