Features & guest posts
Matchingfoodandwine.com relaunched with style!
To celebrate we’re offering an amazing prize - a case of Roederer champagne. All you have to do is sign up for our new monthly newsletter - see here for how to enter the draw.
Of course the makeover amounts to more than a new look. We’ve switched to a Google-type search function that I think makes it a great deal easier to find a match - or several possible pairings - for a dish or meal you’re planning to make or a wine or beer you want to show off. Hit the Find a Match section for that.
If you simply want to browse there are two new sections, Wine with Food and Food with Drink which should throw up plenty of new ideas, along with Top Pairings and the popular Match of the Week slot. Recent posts includes more general features on food and wine pairing and other subjects of interest to food and wine lovers.
In the Entertaining section you’ll find seasonal menus and ideas for special occasions such as Chinese New Year, Easter and Christmas while if you’re after a new recipe to refresh your repertoire try - obviously enough - Recipes.
I’m also lucky to get to travel and eat out a fair amount so you’ll find the fruits of that in Reviews - mainly focussed on London restaurants and a few hotels and restaurants elsewhere (the restaurants and Travel categories). And check out my pick of the latest releases in the Book Reviews section.
Finally, if you’re a member of the wine trade or hospitality industry there’s a special section for you called Wine Pros which contains slightly geekier stuff about wine dinners, clever pairings and the other things your competitors may be getting up to. Obviously you don’t have to actually be employed in the industry to get the benefit of that - it’s for keen amateurs too. You’ll be able to subscribe to that section - and a regular Wine Pros newsletter - in a couple of months.
If you have any feedback or questions about the new site do contact us via the contact box.
