Food & Wine Pairing: Grilled Shrimp - Vino in Love

Food & Wine Pairing: Grilled Shrimp - Vino in Love | @FoodMeditations Time | Scoop.it

There is no better way to enjoy summer than with delicious grilled shrimp paired with a fantastic white wine.

Grilled shrimp call for either a sparkling wine or a white wine. The wine we are looking for should be medium bodied and crisp. It’s very important that the wine has no or only little oak. I decided to pair the Shrimp scampi with a Sauvignon Blanc from South Tyrol but Trebbiano (for example Lugana) would pair equally well. Why South Tyrolean Sauvignon Blanc? Italy’s Alto Adige region offers perfect growing conditions for Sauvignon Blanc and the sandy and limy soil give the wines great personality.

Edible News's insight:

sounds delicious!

Sunil's curator insight, September 3, 2013 11:45 PM

Gluten free diet is a new gastronomic issue in food service industry. I agree with stereotypes concept has raised in food industry about Gluten free diet. People are influenced with celebrities and have accepted that Gluten free can loss the weight and it has health benefits. But the fact is as author indicated, for people with coeliac disease, gluten causes the body to attack itself by destroying "villi", tiny fingerlike protrusions lining the small intestine that are vital for absorbing nutrition. Due to misconception in customers demand, hotels or resorts have to provide gluten free diet in their menus. In such circumstances, the cost of food is become higher because of the price of gluten free item is much expensive than regular food products. Thus, manager has to consider in menu design about the gluten free option that lead to purchasing extra number of ingredients.
