So it is now the year of the pig. We celebrate the Chinese New Year every year with a nice dinner at our house.
I am not chinese, but my daughter is. And I lived there for nearly 7 years. So that’s why;)
This year I made 6 different dishes, and it took me a day to prepare. Chinese food is all about cutting it all into little pieces and mixing it with ginger, Chili and garlic. And other little things;)
I will add lot’s of recipes at the blog.
So what should you drink with the food?
This year I had the best paired wine with the food ever. Two different kinds of Stoneleigh from New Zealand.
I actually preferred the Chardonnay with the food. It was a perfect match! But my husband liked the other one better. I will stock up with the Stoneleigh Latitude Chardonnay because it’s the best wine I ever had with the Chinese food. And I have 16 years of experience of chinese food and wine;)
The food I make is just a little bit spicy, the Shanghai style of cooking. I did make a Sichuan dish too, and I still loved the Chardonnay with it. The wine is very rich and well just buy it, trust me!
The Wild Valley Sauvignon Blanc was a good one too, but more on the sweet side. I had this one with fish the other night and it was perfect!
So just stay updated on my blog, and I will give you all those recipes to go with the wine!
