5 good matches for roast pork belly
Posted by Fiona Beckett (Google+) on April 9 2016 at 08:16
Pork belly has become one of the most popular main courses on restaurant menus so what should you drink with it? It doesn't have to be wine . . .
- Medium-dry cider. It may not be the flashiest choice but it’s top of my list. Pork and cider go together like - well, pork and cider. Pear cider (perry) works well too, especially sparkling perry
- India Pale Ale, particularly heavily hopped American pale ales with a touch of sweetness. A brilliant match
- German spätlese Riesling. Pork belly is quite fatty so the delicious sharpness of a Riesling really cuts through especially when the pork is served with apple. Alsace and Austrian Rieslings work well too
- Beaujolais and other Gamay-based reds. Bright and fruity. Just the job.
- Southern French Grenache-based reds such as Côtes du Rhône work well if you fancy a red.
