Pairings | Pork pie
As with most foods, the best wine pairing with pork depends how the pork is cooked, and what it’s served with.
Today, being St George’s Day, what other pairing could I offer you but a classic British dish with a classic British beer?
We Brits don't need much encouragement to eat pies. But which is the better match - wine or beer?
I often get asked what the best pairing for a serious red wine is and I don’t think the people who pose the question would expect the answer 'pork pie'.
OK, pie and beer is not rocket science but sometimes it’s good to be reminded what a very good match they can be. Especially when both the pie and the beer come from the same place.
A couple of years ago I went to a chutney-making demonstration and tasting. No, not at the WI - it was held by the family owned company Tracklements at leading London cheesemonger La Fromagerie which has recently expanded its empire into the neighbouring shop and now has a fancy new tasting room.
