Stop Wining Laddie - And Pass the Macallan!
Why bother with sissy wines and beers when you can have whisky all through your meal? A new trend in dining is pairing spirits and cocktails
with food. Russian aristocrats still refuse to drink vodka unaccompanied by comestibles while modern Italians and Americans cook with it
. The Japanese love their straight Cognac and Chivas with everything bar sashimi and eccentric old Englishmen stick with Port
from start to finish. I guess they're all on to something, no? In case they're not, here, by way of consolation, is a wonderful interactive food and wine matcher
for the dullards and traditionalists among us. Cheers!
