Perfect Pairings,  episode 10
This installation of Perfect Pairings was born out of my love of wine from the Bordeaux region of France. Both white and red wines from Bordeaux are delicious, well-respected wines that utilize time-honored traditions of growing, blending and aging. If I had to pick one wine to drink for the rest of my life, it would be red Bordeaux. I grew up near the region and developed my palate on Bordeaux. Aldo Sohm, the wine director at Le Bernardin knows this about me so we decided to put the Bordeaux up against four completely different foods—raw oysters, Camembert cheese, lobster salad and pecan pie. Watch as we test my theory that “Bordeaux Goes with Everything” with these diverse flavors.
