Pairing Food and Drink: 4 Suggestions to Try!

Pairing Food and Drink: 4 Suggestions to Try!

Pairing food and drink can be a huge challenge for catering an event.

Pairing food and drink can be a huge challenge for catering an event. However, in the meantime, you can have food and drink delivered to you for you to experiment with, especially if you are trying to eat different meals while still enjoying a libation or two. Even if your next shindig is months away, this is the time to figure it out, especially if you are a professional chef tasked with creating the menu.  

Street Style Tacos and Bloody Marys 

Everyone loves tacos. Make every day a taco Tuesday by assembling your own street-style tacos. Some options include beef barbacoa, chicken tinga, plus black bean and corn salad as a side dish. Throw in pico de gallo, onion cilantro relish, and both corn and flour tortillas. After all, you will want to respect food sensitivities, which could include wheat, corn, and eggs. Bloody marys are an iconic drink that also pairs well with small plates of cheese, celery, olives, and hot sauce.    

Short Ribs and Red Wine 

Moving into another meaty menu item, let’s examine how short ribs and red wine pair together. This selection can be for an elegant occasion like an upscale wedding. Pearl onions, herbs, and mushrooms take the ribs to the next level, as does a fancy cabernet sauvignon or merlot.  

Macaroni and Cheese with Pale Ale 

Everyone loves comfort food. That’s why mac-and-cheese is so beloved. Catering your next event doesn’t always have to include the cutting edge of culinary or gastronomical advancement. A pale ale and some mac and cheese can be enough but elevated with cavatappi pasta, four-cheese sauce, mushrooms, roasted green peppers, and even jalapenos for an extra bit of heat. The beer you should choose needs to have a nice layer of malt and some hops, which is what the pale ale provides.
