MS Topic of the Week - Master

Burgundy monopoles last post from , and . Awesome work!

This week: Because we all need a little levity after a tough 10 days let's make this one fun.

Junk food pairings:

  • Your favorites
  • Why they work
  • How they can be elevated and adapted to fine dining
  • Gamay & Curly Fries! The unmistakable spice batter on the fries begs for a slightly spicy wine to match. Bright & playful fruitiness will keep the whole spread refreshing and addictive. I imagine this scenario elevated to a patatas riojanas (now with chorizo and more spices) style dish paired with a lifted yet serious Cru Beauj...Yann Bertrand Fleurie Cuvee du Chaos 2018 would be fun. 

    Can't leave the house due to current events? Totino's pizza rolls with current vintage Bisson rose of Ciliegiolo from Liguria will be a great app before the Netflix binge! This is a deep, very full-bodied rose that has a lot of savory characteristics that will match the weight of the pepperonis (you know, those little cubes) and the herbaceousness of the tomato sauce; plus, the electric tartness of cherry-esque fruit will cut through the richness of the cheese in the little pizza pocket. I could see an elevated (albeit deconstructed and much much more elegant) version at Tavernetta in Denver. 

  • Yes, please. All of this.
