Tim Hanni, MW on Food and Wine pairing: It's Bu@^#%t!

Was this comment meant to appease a specific group of people at a Sauv Blanc Convention or is he trying to start a revolution? 

I guess I understand some of what he's saying about generalizations not necessarily matching people and specific dishes, but then he goes off topics and starts talking about arrogant categorization, so I'm having trouble following his entire argument. Having spent hours finding the best pairing for a dish at times, I think I can comfortably say I disagree with this type of sentiment. 

Thoughts?

  • The article is a small selection of quotations that are taken out of context but I can personally attest to the fact that there are TERRIBLE food and wine pairings, such as Amarone and king crab, that will scar you for life.
