Perfectly Paired Tidbits

So often I get asked… what should I drink with __________________? (fill in the blank) Billy Joel reckons “a bottle of red, a bottle of white, perhaps a bottle of rose instead”.

But I like changing things up. And well, it is all about flavour combinations. So as much as I enjoy drinking wine and using alcohol in cooking, baking, making my boozE cakes and, just quietly, probably the first one to grab a craft beer, or get the cocktail shaker out, it’s not all about alcohol!

I’ve been on a little culinary adventure drinking my way around New Zealand in the comfort of my own kitchen (and beyond). So grab a drinking vessel or a straw and get ready to quench your thirst with some mouthwatering recipes with drinks to match!
