Try Wine With These 8 New Year’s Food Traditions

Never in my wildest dreams did I entertain the idea that I would become a fashion designer. A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language. I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes. Attitude is everything.

For pork barbecue, you’re often seasoning with sweet, spicy, smoky, and tangy flavors and matching sauces. In this case, you can use your wine to balance the smoke and spice of your grilled pork with something fruity that has similar smoky-spicy flavors. For example, a Zinfandel that’s medium- to full-bodied with plenty of backbone will do the trick. However, you also have another option. Do as the Italians do: use your wine as a “sauce,” to the meat.

For example, you could serve a glass of Ruby Port on ice alongside your slow smoked pork, which will easily serve as the sweet “sauce,” and provide you with an exceptional explosion of flavor – don’t forget the slightly pickled sweet slaw on the side. A nice, dry Riesling (Trocken) might even do the trick here too.

A nice, dry Riesling (Trocken) might even do the trick here too. In the realm of red meat, such as burgers or steak on the grill, think about another full-bodied option, such as Tempranillo, Cabernet-blend, Sangiovese, or even a good GSM Blend (Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre). These wines will enhance the the peppery and tobacco flavors in the dish.

“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”

Spinning things differently on the grill, basic salt and pepper, maybe a few tomatoes, or even lime and cilantro for fish tacos, you’ll want to play off of the citrus and minerality in a nicely chilled Sauvignon Blanc, Fumé Blanc (slightly oaked Sauvignon Blanc), Grechetto, Grüner Veltliner, or Verdejo.
