I don't regularly drink wine with my meals, but there are certain entrees that simply cry out for vino, and I inevitably answer the cry. They are as follows:
Pasta with red sauce/pizza--I like a cheap, rough-edged red with these dishes. Preferably gulped from a Mason jar.
Indian food--I have yet to encounter an Indian entree that is not enhanced by a cool, unoaked chardonnay. The slight acidity and sweetness cuts through the creaminess of many of these dishes, and the coolness soothes a palate that, in my case, is bound to be in flames.
Egg dishes--Souffles, quiches, frittatas, scrambled eggs, all of them must be accompanied by white wine. Any grape, save muscat, will do.
Steak--This one is the most essential of all. I simply must have a bottle of zinfandel to go along with my steak. Nothing else will suffice, I'm afraid.
But enough about me. What foods must you accompany with wine?
