10 Fun Food & Wine Pairings

10 Fun Food & Wine Pairings

One of my favorite pastimes is experimenting with unusual food and wine matches, including "shabby-chic" combos, such as champagne and potato chips. For me, these high-low pairings not only taste delicious together, but they also pierce the pretentious notion that wine is only for special occasions and fancy food.

Here are my top 10 fun shabby-chic combos:
Popcorn with Chilean chardonnay
Nachos with California zinfandel
Potato chips with French champagne
Pizza with Italian chianti
Fish and chips with German riesling &
Hamburgers with Australian shiraz
Smoked salmon with Canadian or Oregon pinot noir
Quiche with New Zealand sauvignon blanc
Canned brown beans with tawny port
TV dinner steak with French or Washington cabernet sauvignon
What are your favorites? Have you tried any that were a disaster?
