What is this foodie phenomenon I keep hearing about?
I've heard from a couple of friends how amazing the combination of chips and wine is and so after a long time decided to make it my mission to try it; that combo! It has come to pass, I did it this very weekend.
In particular it has been stated that whatever wine was being enjoyed the chip brand was Miss Vicki's which I must concur with in knowing how much I enjoy Miss Vicki's for that amazing kettle cooked Crunch you just don't get with the "average" bag of potato chips. Last night I enjoyed Kettle brand chips purchased at Metro; low sodium. Hubby helped with the consumption. My choice of wine was Grand Feudo/Reserva 2009; a combination of Tempranillo-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot grapes. Yes, this is sounding lovely, so I think perhaps a "group" thingy could happen here; you know, like Book Club. Maybe Crisps and Vines would be a name for this research group! Yes, research. Which wine best suits which chips! This knowledge could make or break ones start to the weekend. The wrong combo could be devastating!
I did enjoy my first plunge into studying this concept and I imagine I will look further into this! I still really find myself craving chocolate and maybe there's room to add a little "side" to this wine and chips pairing!
Well, CHEERS to more learning!
