Some notes about the Food + Wine = Art food and wine enthusiast club…
This club exists to facilitate the exploration of the magic that occurs when foods and wines are properly paired. When food complements wine, and vice versa, each is made even better than if consumed alone. Properly-paired foods can make wine fruitier, rounder, smoother. Properly-paired wines freshen the palate for each bite so that each is as good as the first.
Food and wine pairing is an art. True there is some science to it – after all, chemistry is involved – but when done properly a food/wine pairing transcends the chemistry equation and becomes something that is sometimes best appreciated in awe and silence. That’s where we strive to get in this club – to the point where we create art.
Not all club events will involve food paired with wines. Just as an artist must perform values studies, must explore the effects of light and shadow, must play with colors, so must we sometimes work in the “basics” of the food/wine pairing craft. This involves understanding wines, how to analyze and taste them, how wine characteristics interact with food, and so we’ll spend some time doing these things.
But don’t worry! It’s all going to be fun There are no finals here – just as much personal growth as you want.
If you are interested in participating, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll add you to our email distribution list.
Come join us on our journey into the magical world of wine and food.
