Quick meals and Wines to match
It’s great having a wine match for elaborate and slow cooked meals; drinking wine is always a bit of an occasion.
One issue for me however, is that I don’t always have time available to put together anything too complicated, or to wait for anything that cooks slowly. You also need a fair bit of time aside to clean up after yourself (or at least I do!) after a truly epic effort in the Kitchen.
One favourite quick dinner of mine (thanks to my sister) is to fry Onions, Garlic, Mushrooms, some bacon bits and to finally stir in a pot of Crème fraiche, add in some boiled pasta and dinner is served. With the creamy sauce and slightly sweet acidic touch you get from the onions I really like a youngish, lightly oaked Chardonnay with this speedy dinner. If I’m in a real hurry I’ll go for a grilled fish finger sandwich, with lightly toasted bread and mayonnaise or ketchup depending on my mood! (A guilty pleasure since Uni.) If I have the choice I’ll generally go for a nice un-oaked Sauvignon (generally from NZ) with this ‘delicacy’.
Does anybody else have any favourite meals on the run and wines to match? I clearly need to broaden my range and possibly (reading this back) eat more healthily
