For me, a glass of wine is food. It’s another flavor—often many flavors in one sip—to be enjoyed along with the other foods that I’m eating at a meal. More than any other beverage, wine has the ability to complement and enhance other flavors. Though you hardly ever hear any chef or food authority say this, the simplest possible technique for adding flavor interest to any meal is to drink a glass of wine alongside it. Try it sometime with even a slice of pizza and see how many more flavors you taste in that ordinary, familiar dish.
