Bottle of red? Bottle of white? Billy Joel was never much help when it came to hosting a dinner party. For some of us, menu planning is a daunting task. Not only do we need to figure out what we're serving and how, but what wine goes with it. The truth is, we've never been true connoisseurs when it comes to vino. So, how the hell should we know what goes best with a Shiraz?
Then we found the Food & Wine Pairing Print ($19) and there was much rejoicing. Each food and wine category is cleverly color-coded so you can't go wrong. It even displays hard-to-pair foods like asparagus! It's a framable cheat sheet for the pairing-impaired. Hang it in or near your dining area and be daunted no more!
