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?
One of the best I've ever had was at Osteria Francescana, where Sauternes was paired with risotto halfway through an eight course menu. The next course was matched with a light cocktail to help readjust our palates.
What was the cocktail?
I don't remember specifically. Something floral and spritzy!
