Wine- and food-blogger Andrew left a comment in one of my posts below, and we continued the conversation via e-mail. Andrew has a vision for a new monthly participatory project in the vein of Wine Blogging Wednesday. But instead of a themed wine, the idea is to post a recipe, then everyone cooks it and pairs it with a wine, and reports on how well that wine matched the dish. Andrew calls it Combinations, and has blogged about it here and here.
I think it's important to look at this not only for foodbloggers to think more about wine, but also for winebloggers to think more about food. In the words of Rogers & Hammerstein, "The Farmer and the Cowman Should Be Friends". We've all got the opportunity to learn a lot, broaden our horizons, and have some damned good food and wine in the process.
I fully support this project, will promote it to the best of my ability, and look forward to participating in it in the months to come.
