I have been planning on writing an article along these lines. While looking for inspiration I came across this article at Food and Wine
Inspired by the book He Said Beer, She Said Wine, F&W invited authors Sam Calagione, the founder of Delaware’s Dogfish Head brewery, and Marnie Old, a wine educator, to a taste-off. The challenge: Who could come up with the superior pairing for the recipes here?
Inspired is a very good word for some of the pairings suggested in the article.
