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?

Parents
  • 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!
