For wine lovers, matching wine with food can be a fun activity. Even if you don’t know everything there is to know about wine, though, pairing it with food isn’t as hard as you think.
Imagine, though, trying to find just the right wine to pair with comfort food. Sounds daunting, doesn’t it? The challenge is in defining what makes a dish “comfort food,” which can be as carb-loaded as a bowl of ooey-gooey mac and cheese or buttered popcorn. It could provide a sugar rush like a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, or satisfy a meat craving like a greasy cheeseburger.
Whatever category you crave, we have lined up nine different comfort foods and found just the right wine to serve with each.
