My wife knows stuff about wine – mostly how to drink it. She doesn’t normally purchase wine, instead entrusting me with that task and then letting me know if she likes it or not. Between you and me [and i guess her, since she will probably eventually read this] she likes more than she doesn’t.
So this week, while on vacation without me in Florida, she was forced to take matters into her own hands and pair wine with food. The food? The finest donut in ‘Merica that isn’t made by Krispy Kreme – Entenmann’s. This is what she came up with.
Oh, i just started salivating. I am very impressed with her pairing – American Cab Sav with Entenmann’s chocolate covered cake donut. It’s so affirming that after 22 years of marriage she can instinctively pair these classic ‘Merican foods. Don’t tell me our friends south of the 49th parallel don’t understand food.
The folks at Bogle [also the name of a fascinating family favourite word game – alliteration acknowledged] make a fine cabernet sauvignon.
So find your favourite Cabernet and your favourite donut [somebody please use a boston cream] and let me know how it goes.
