A lot of times I enjoy wine when visiting with friends or shooting a game of pool. Lately, I really enjoy smoked almonds as a healthy snack along with a great Barolo or Barberesco. Until someone introduced me to the pairing I never thought of it but it works nicely for me.
I would love to hear and try some other suggestions of great snack combinations/pairings. What type of wine and easy to grab snack is your favourite pairing? Smile

That makes sense. Although, I did enjoy a tempura battered snow pea/ asparagus combination drizzled with soy sauce, along with a Chianti. It was very, very good, or I was very very hungry. Smile
Two weeks ago we tried a very old cheddar and a marvellous Smoked Gouda along with a 1990 Beaucastel CDP. All served at room temperature.....and it was a nice treat, indeed.

Good stuff! Any particular bread in mind? Olive loaf, maybe? Smile
Have you ever tried zuccini/parmesan/prosciutto wrapped and baked in a phyllo dough. When ready...dip them in a fresh marinara sauce, not tangy, and you have a great compliment to a wonderful Brunello. Smile
Bill,

I just use the best crusty loaf of Italian bread I can get my hands on, but there's a decent bakery in town that makes a good olive loaf I'll give a try to. I'm not a red meat eater, but your zucc/parm/prosc. idea sounds fantastic.

I find that the fats in something like the parm or EVOO helps to cut the tannic fury that some of the younger old world reds tend to have.

That's great! Nothing like a decent bakery close by a wine connoisseur. The possibilities are endless.
You certainly can elminate the prosciutto, and add a second, very thin match stick like slice of fresh parmesan in it's place. You will still achieve the balance against your tannic, young, Italian wine and this caters a little more to your culinary preferences. Smile

Cool. Do you think a couple of basil leaves might be good in this, or would they overpower the zucchini?


Rather than baking it in together add more of it to your Marinara Dip or sprinkle a little chopped basil on top. Smile

No dissin' here. Now that I have been introduced to that product I can't wait to try it. Gigond Ass has it as a favourite, is a frequent poster here and obviously enjoys and has a knowledge of wine.

The question was "what's your favorite snack to enjoy with wine". Your response reads that you’re the snacker not the snackie. Eek Big Grin
