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.
There is no Hanni revolution coming... People can drink what they like with whatever food they wish. I was going to personally ban him from enjoying food and wine together but forgot that he is an MW who has been SOBER for over 2 decades. What do you do when you are an MW who doesn't drink??? You write a piece called: Food & Wine Pairings are Bullshit. Honestly, I feel bad for the guy. Can you imagine becoming a world famous wine professional and then choosing to give up what has made you an expert. He has clearly forgotten what makes for a great experience on the palate.
Thank you Anthony for having the balls to call out this ridiculous article and publicly state
the facts. I want to drink some Fino with you and Miguel.
Special K! I am writing an article to post on our website, soon. Stay Tuned!
