A Fun Guide To Pairing Wines With Your Favourite Fast Food Items

A Fun Guide To Pairing Wines With Your Favourite Fast Food Items:



Chomping down a fast food meal need not mean you have to wash it down with sugary soda—you can enjoy your greasy comfort food while sipping on a glass of good wine with a friendly price-tag.



Food trends website Food Beast has teamed up with alcohol retailer Total Wine to come up with a fun guide that applies the science of wine pairings for fine dining to fast food.



Picking out items from the major fast food chains like McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut, the expert sommelier from Total Wine shared on the ideal fast food-wine matches and the reasons why they are so great together.



For instance, the All-American fried chicken and mash potatoes combination from KFC is paired with Chardonnay, the best selling grape in the U.S.A, both because of their origins and that the latter has enough “acidity to cut through the fat” of the former.
