Everything you wanted to know about matching food and wine…but were afraid to ask! » A unique approach to wine and winemaking. » CRAIGS WINE

It seems that the perception of putting the right food with the right wine (or vice versa) is a difficult task.It’s not …if you know the basics! Before I get to the basics, I would like to give a little credit where credit is due. I have learned a lot about wine and food matching from Dave Larocque whom I would say is one of best that I have seen when it comes to pairing the characteristics of the wine to enhance the meal.

Dave Larocque is a wine educator for many wineries including Hillebrand and Peller Estates. He also conducts wine tastings and has been a featured guest speaker at many wine events and conventions around the country, many of which I have attended. Here are the 9 basic principles. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. The key is to keep trying different foods with different wines but remember the basics because it will save you time (and perhaps some money).

Dear, sweet, gentle reader. It is taking all of my mental and most of my physical capacity to endure life until tomorrow night when Germany plays Spain in the semi-finals of the World Cup. If you've been following along, and I sure hope you have (the drama! The intrigue! The exhilaration!) , you might have caught drift of the way the German team is playing and though I've been a devoted fan since the age of five, when a sticker of Rudi Völler in all his permed and mustachioed glory found a permanent home glued to the underside of a shelf positioned right above my bed so that I could see him before I went to sleep at night and first thing when I woke up, I have to say it's never been this much fun to watch them play.

Anyway, since you come here for food and chat and not sports commentary, I will do my very best to keep my nerves to myself, but I'll just say it's hard, okay? It's exhausting. Food and chat, woman!

Too much to share, and some bits I'm saving for a future post, but I did want to talk about a big part of my Saturday: the Bake Sale for Japan. A series of bake sales around the Bay Area organized to raise money for Japan, this event brought together amateur and professional bakers in a happy mashup of cookies, pies, jams, and all other forms of baked goods. I stopped by one of the San Francisco bake sales, located at Bi-Rite, with my contributions (more on them below) and snapped a few pictures of the bounty on display: There was barely room on the table for all the contributions. The outpouring of support from the baking community was lovely to see. Everything was beautifully packaged - people really went the extra mile to make their goods look pretty.
