When cooking a meal for dating the important thing to remember is to cook something light. This can lead to problems you haven't probably imagined yet, so here's the full story.
Cooking something light is perfect for combining with white wine, so get your wine pairing skills up to date and cook something impressive.
Here are some tips on wine pairing:
- Try cooking the Beef Tenderloin Medallions with Potato Risotto, and accompany that with a Shiraz (preferrably from Australia). View the recipe @ Epicurious
- Another good recipe is the Fettuccine with Wilted Escarole and Mushrooms, particularly well combined with some white Semillon wine from Washington
- Try some delicious fish dishes and if you're in New York you have plenty of options to go find some fresh one. Try some Pinot Noir with baked fish and it can work wonders. Otherwise fish combines well with white wine.
