#Sunday Supper: Wines For The Foods That Move You!

I’m a relative newcomer to the #SundaySupper movement, but I can tell you it’s made a difference in my life.  A few years ago when my wife I were first married, we made it a point to try to cook a nice meal on Sunday, break out a “weekend” bottle of wine and invite friends or family by to share a meal and good wine with us.  Somehow over the last couple of years we’ve gotten away from doing this.  Instead we’ve been dining out more.  Since I’ve been a part of #SundaySupper – offering wine pairing recommendations for the fabulous recipes – that’s changing!

I truly enjoy offering wine pairing recommendations, and seeing all the wonderfully creative recipes, and the stories that often accompany them, has been an inspiration to me.  It has rekindled my desire to prepare a nice meal on Sundays.  It’s something my wife and I can do together to connect after a hectic week.  We’ve already tried a few of the recipes, and look forward to trying many more!

  1. I hardly have Riesling, or I should say know even less about white wines than red ones. This is Malbec country, but it´s interesting to see how many of your pairings I can find to try. A great post as usual.

    1. Thanks Paula. I love Malbec! Definitely one of the great values of the wine world. I’m planning to work more in to future #SundaySupper pairings!

    So nice to hear that #SundaySupper has brought you back to having meals at home with your family and friends. Thanks for another wonderful list of wine pairings to go with the recipes.

    1. Thanks Renee! I hope you and yours have a great #SundaySupper!

  3. I’m happy to hear you have rekindled your love of cooking and are finding more time to enjoy it.

    I see you’ve selected a couple of Francis Coppola wines to pair with the dishes today. I had the opportunity to stop in at Cafe Zoetrope while in San Francisco and got to try a few flights of his wine. They were outstanding.

    1. Thanks Eileen! I enjoy cooking. It’s relaxing for the most part and allows me to use some creativity (though nothing compared to my fellow #SS friends)!

  4. Laura Hunter says:

    I love Riesling with curry. As a matter of fact I have a bottle chilling right now, I think I might make curry again for dinner tonight. Thanks for the pairing.

    1. Thanks Laura! Happy #SundaySupper – Enjoy!

    Zinfandel sounds like a great choice for my Honey Mustard Beans, Martin! Cindy @ http://www.cindysrecipesandwritings.com

    Oh, thank you so much for the pairing with my enchiladas…I particularly enjoy red wines that can handle a chill in these dog days of summer!

    1. You’re most welcome. Looks like a great recipe! I love Mexican food!
