This week: Food pairing with sweet wines
What are the general guidelines to utilizing sweet wines in a pairing? What is the latest killer pairing with sweet wine that you've had?
As a general rule, the wine must be sweeter than the dish. Otherwise, it will seem that you ordered a coca cola, and received a diet instead. One of my recent favorites was a flourless chocolate torte topped with brandied cherries along side 1986 Bodedas Toro Albala Pedro Ximenez Gran Reserva. Magical!
