Because even the least-glamorous snack foods can be enjoyed with great wine, too.
A fancy wine isn’t just for pairing with a slow-cooked duck ragù, say, or the subtle flavours of kingfish sashimi. Sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that bring the most pleasure.
Director of wine for Perth’s State Buildings, Emma Farrelly, explains that “food and wine pairing is all about balancing salt, fat, acid and sugar”. That makes way your favourite guilty snacks to be prime pairings for a good drop.
“Junk food isn’t subtle. It’s all in your face with plenty of flavour, so they’re actually quite easy things to pair wine with,” says Farrelly.
