Pairing Wine with Food – a walkthrough with Jerry Comfort

 

On November 16th 2012, I had the pleasure to sit down one-on-one with Jerry Comfort and let him take me through the intricacies of pairing wine with food. We met at the Westin Harbourfront Castle Hotel, shook hands and sat down around a low-laying table set with three glasses filled with water and white and red wines, aside was a plate with sliced red apple, lemon wedge and a salt shaker. I knew that we’ll be talking about pairing food with wine or pairing wine with food, but I didn’t expect a demonstration and certainly didn’t expect the presentation that followed, but before getting into that, I need to take a step back.
