Matching wine with food – Workshop

Matching wine with food – Workshop

Matching wine with food is case of learning by doing. There are principles that need to be followed, but as most rules, there are always exceptions and we can use the exceptions to make a meal into an “experience to remember!”

During the course of the day, we will be introducing you to the principles of food and wine matching and then examine these rules practically, using different cooking methods, textures and flavours to understand what works and why, as well as how some “problems” can be avoided and made into potential positive experiences that our guests will remember and value!

Required Prior Knowledge – WSET® Level 2 in Wines and Spirits, an advantage to have followed and passed the WSET® Level 3 in Wines or an equivalent level of experience

Guided learning hours: a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 9 hours is required to meet the learning outcomes of the course
