What a fabulous collection of recommendations and ideas. Thank you. On our recent trip to France and Italy, we had some amazing pairings of food and wine.
At one restaurant in Rome, the owner/chef came out to each table to get to know a bit about each diner. Then he would build the menu for each person individually. It was amazing.
Then in France in chateaux country for a wine tasting, each wine was paired with an amazing cheese. Each separately was good, but when put together, they were amazing!!!
