Aunt Patti and Brewski had a terrific, low key wine food pairing event for the friends in the neighborhood ... what a terrific idea they came up with ... make your own pizza!
All the toppings were sliced and diced ready for everyone to pick and choose from. Aunt Patti had already rolled the pizza dough out and we were green for go!
A crispy green salad was a great side ... of course this was dressed with pumpkin seed oil from Austria and then a pomegranate vinegar ... YUMMO!
I had a nice Cab from Chile and everyone else chose their favorite beverage ...
Wine, food pairing in the "hood" ....
To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine.... And those who don't.
As Ben Franklin said:
In wine there is wisdom,
In beer there is freedom,
In water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated
That if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli,
(E. Coli) - bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
Water = Poop,
Wine = Health.
Therefore, it's better
To drink wine and talk stupid,
Than to drink water and be full of shit.
I'm doing it as a public service.... LOL!
Wine food pairing ... always an adventure. Cheers!
