Chicken: Get Over White Meat and Try Legs and Thighs. Russia, an article in Slate announced this week, has taken steps to close its chicken gap.

Chicken: Get Over White Meat and Try Legs and Thighs

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is putting the brakes on U.S. exports of dark-meat chicken — the legs and thighs that once carried around those skinless breasts so many Americans are buying. This Putin stuff is bad news, since nobody in the U.S. apparently likes the gamier meat in legs and thighs. Which is too bad, because I'm going to let you in on a secret. I'm going to be the one to say what nearly every person in the culinary world thinks: We all hate chicken breasts. Hate them. We love the flavor of the dark meat, its succulence, its complexity, its wealth of delicious, tasty skin, the way the meat is proportional to the bone, keeping it moist and sapid during cooking.

Wine & Food Pairing Guide Chart

This chart was compiled from many other food and wine pairing charts to provide a quick reference and ongoing resource for your home bar's wine rack or cellar. The commonly recommended complementary matches from a number of different sommelier guides, wine tasting experts, winery suggestions and industry publications were tabulated yielding a kind of consensus grouping of lists. Informal observations suggested much more commonality and agreement on the wine pairings advocated at the ends of the taste spectrum. For this narrow list of choices, it was Chardonnay and Zinfandel, which illustrates how wine is very much an individual experience. Use this as a guide for ideas and experiment to find favorites matching your palate. Know your apples: The spectrum of apple flavors. Anonymous said...
