Finding the perfect wine to complement a carefully prepared dish is often a hit and miss affair, but this handy food & wine pairing guide aims to change that. Written in an accessible manner, it conveys the principles that underpin a good wine and food match.
Katinka van Niekerk has developed food and wine matching courses which she presents both locally and abroad. A career in the wine industry was followed by a stint as a lecturer for the Cape Wine Academy and she is currently a consultant to chefs and winemakers as well as a visiting lecturer at many hotel schools and catering colleges.
Brian Burke is a passionate foodie with a specific interest in food and wine pairing. During his years in the corporate arena, he hosted numerous business lunches and dinners and keenly felt the lack of a guide to assist him, at a glance, to select wines to accompany those meals.
