tips & tricks

There is nothing like a glass of something you like, with a plate of something you love. Pairing your meal with something that complements its flavours boosts the entire experience to a completely new level. Whether you like beer or wine, you should always try to cater to the flavours of your dish through contrasts and complementing flavours. Also, be sure to note the strength of your drink, as some wines or beers might either be too strong or too mild for your dish. Ultimately however, choosing what you want to drink with your dish is up to you, but taking note of both your dish and drink is an easy way of making everything taste better!
