Canada Day 2018 Pairings
My better half says I should share my wine pairing meals here. So, I obey. Here's the first from our friends' place in Champagne. Hope they inspire some interesting pairing of your own!
(This will also eventually connect to #TWC, this week's chinese, the group meals we organise for pairing wine and regional chinese food send a message if you are curious)
