Gourmet Food And Wine Ideas

By Peter Fibunacci

There are many gourmet food and wine choices to make. Leave them for occasions that are special shared with friends and family. There are lots of options that you can call upon but it is important to remember to always look for the best ingredients which are available.

Have foods like specialty shellfish, particularly lobster as a flavorsome yet light on the palate option. You can experiment with different flavors and serve it in the way that borrow tastes from Chinese or Thai cuisines or alternatively dress it in garlic, butter and herbs which is a simpler method of preparation.

Meat which is hand reared and fed organically will always be of the best quality and perfect for gourmet cooking. It will have a flavor that is richer and more distinct and it also makes cooking it a simpler process as the texture is better.

This applies particularly to beef and to rarer meats such as Venison which are impressive when served during formal dinners when they are served with the right vegetables. When serving vegetables never crowd the plate and always make sure they are not overcooked as this impairs their flavor

For those who like their desserts it is best if you ensure something which is home made. You can make your own cake or tart and these can be served on their own with cream. For those who are not impressed by all things sweet provide a selection of cheeses along with biscuits, grapes and crackers.

There are many decent vintage wines and finding a good one is a pleasurable experience. Talk your options over with an expert and they will discuss the different qualities of each bottle you select. Match your choices to the dishes that will be eaten alongside it. Champagne is for celebration and the normal rules with food do not apply.
