What goes better with food than wine? Probably nothing; except a perfectly matched wine. That’s why we at Chelsea Wine Vault are excited to partner with Seamless for an exclusive peek inside our Tuesday Night Takeout classes. Starting this month, we’ll be holding a wine pairing class on the last Tuesday of each month that shows attendees how to find the perfect wine match to bring out the flavors of their favorite takeout foods.
The first Tuesday Night Takeout class on May 28th at Chelsea Wine Vault will focus on Thai food. We’ll order some standout dishes from local Thai restaurants, including favorites like pad thai, coconut curry, chicken satay, and maybe even tangy tom yum soup. We’ll pick out some of the dominant flavors in the cuisine (herbal, fresh, nutty, spicy), and figure out what kind of wine flavor profiles match best with the flavors of the food. Then we’ll go through a lineup of 6 wines that we really love with Thai food, ranging from light and crisp white wine for shrimp, wines with a touch of sweetness to balance out spicy green curry, silky rosés and even the occasional red for dishes featuring beef or pork. Sounds good? You can join up online.
After the class, we’ll do a recap post so you can brush up on what you learned and find out more about pairing wine with your favorite Seamless takeout orders. We’ll share a list of exactly what we ordered, and links to the wines we poured, so you can recreate the experience at home. We’ll also include some of our attendees’ most thought-provoking questions, and our instructor’s answer for good measure. Watch this space for more wine and food posts from us, and of course, we’ll be happy to answer any of your food and wine pairing questions here in the comments, or on our Twitter and Facebook pages!
