Wine appetizers: perfect combinations for red and white
There are few things that can be compared to enjoying a glass of wine in the bathroom and something delicious to boot. And if everything is clear with the first two points, then snacks to wine immediately raise many questions. Indeed, it is very easy to spoil the pleasure of such an exquisite drink with food, and bad combinations will bring the elite variety down from heaven to earth.

How to combine wine with food-basic rules
- Refined with refined, modest with modest
The simplest and most important rule is that if you want to enjoy an elite wine, do not eat it with a sausage sandwich, and vice versa — if you really want a sandwich, that expensive bottle that you saved for a special occasion can wait.
- Tender with tender, fat with fat
A delicate wine, such as red burgundy, will eventually taste like water if served with a very bold dish, such as curry. Dishes with a bright, spicy and spicy taste are ideal for bold, spicy and aromatic wines.
- Greasy food and strong wines
Food that is high in fat, butter, or cream usually requires an equally rich and concentrated wine.
- Salt vs acidity
The salinity in food is in sharp contrast to the acidity in wine. Think of smoked salmon and champagne, or parmesan and Chianti.
- Beware of the sweet to the sweet
With desserts, pay attention to the sweetness. Foods that are sweeter than wine make the taste of the drink dull.
