When having a glass of wine with your dinner, you want to make sure it’s the best pairing possible to get to achieve an optimal flavour combination. A bad food and wine pairing can risk leaving a bitter taste in your mouth.
That’s why we’ve decided to create a cheat sheet of food and wine pairings you really can’t go wrong with. We will be working our way through our ranges, up next …
Cordon Negro Cava
The Takeaway: Fish and chips
You can’t get a better pairing than fish and chips with a cold, crisp glass of cava.
The acidity and citrus notes of our cava will cut through the fried batter in the fish, creating a magical food and wine pairing. Ditch the slice of lemon and just have our cava instead – with all the zippiness in the wine, you’ll get the same lemony flavour but with added bubbles!
The homemade dish: French toast or Pancakes
Who doesn’t love brunch? Cava really does compliment a creamy dish too, and so plate of fluffy pancakes or french toast topped off with butter is the perfect combination.
Try to avoid having berries and instead stick with a creamier topping, such as butter, a savoury sauce or nuts!
The light dinner: Tapas
Of course, we couldn’t forget the ultimate cava pairing – tapas! You may have heard the saying ‘what grows together, goes together’ and this is a great reminder when pairing your food and wine.
Cava is a Spanish wine, and so naturally Spanish tapas is an easy and delightful choice. Keep it classic with Spanish tortilla, patatas bravas, grilled fish, and maybe even some padron peppers.
