FigtartWell, the LENNDEVOURS empire continues to expand. With this month’s Mise en Place feature on the Gilded Fork, I’ve officially become the site’s wine pairing guru.

They actually list me on the masthead as an "expert" but that is a bit overstated probably. Wine pairing is much easier than most people think. If you have good food and good wine, chances are you’re going to be okay.

Of course, there are exceptions…but wine pairing goes far beyond red with meat and white with fish.

So, stay tuned as I pair wines with each of chef Mark Tafoya’s courses every month.

If you haven’t heard of the Gilded Fork, check it out. It’s a great site that truly brings the sensual, etheral side of food to the forefront. Plus, wine blogging superstar Alder Yarrow is the site’s wine columnist.
