Days late, real life is taking over blogging life again, but hopefully still ok. Alberto and Lenn, creators of two of the most infectious memes in Food Blogosphere, Is My Blog Burning and Wine Blogging Wednesday, joined forces to host a food blog meme to end all memes, where food bloggers are supposed to blog about wine, and wine bloggers to talk about food.
Well, I fully intended to join, but other eventful events caught up with me and so I am days late....not that's my being late is new or anything. Anyway, here is my entry for Fabulous Favorites.
Instead of recommending one particular wine with a specific dish, I'm going to take this opportunity to answer the most frequent wine question from Chez Pim readers: what wine to drink with Thai food?
Frankly, Thai food –with rampant spices, out of control heat, bitter herbs, cloying sweetness, sometimes all of those qualities in one dish- makes for a rather tough match with wine. But don't despair, good matches are not beyond the realm of possibility. I mean, if Tom Cruise can make a baby, then anything is possible, no?
