In the science of pairing wine with chocolate, here’s my rule: there is no science. Like all great experimentations, some combinations work and some do not. Some pairings can be predicted, some surprise me. The act of pairing wine and chocolate is part science, part art and a lot of fun. The applications are endless. However, prior to embarking on your sensory journey, you may want to peruse some general guidelines that I have found helpful in my tasting travels. These tips apply to any type of chocolate pairing - wine, beer, cheese, tea, single malt scotch, whisky, gin, sake and more.
Peace, Love and Chocolate, Katrina
