There’s nothing quite like perfectly pairing a glass of vino with a delectable dish. While you can’t go wrong with a classic cheese platter, there are so many recipes on offer that are best paired with wine! Borrowed from acclaimed cookbooks, the below recipes showcase dishes that include wine during the cooking process or have a recommended wine pairing. Whether you’re in the mood for Italian, seafood, modern Australian or something sweet, they’ll be something to quench your hunger in the recipes below. Each features a quote from the author/chef of each cookbook to give you a little insight into the inspiration behind the meal. As a great rule of thumb, pair a crisp Gippsland chardonnay with any fish or pork dish, while lamb or a nice piece of beef combine well with a peppery shiraz from the cool-climate of the central Victoria regions or a fruity cabernet sauvignon from wineries in the Pyrenees. From light lunches, to rich dinners and delectable desserts, below is a compilation of some amazing wine and food recipes to add to your recipe book.

Some of the mentioned recipes come from cookbooks including, Barcelona Cult Recipes by Stephen Mitsch, and Weber’s American Barbecue by Jamie Purviance. Each recipe is featured in the printed copy of Wineries of Victoria, which is available from any major newsagency Australia-wide.
