If you thought tucking into a prime steak with a glass of white wine was a culinary blunder, think again, the experts say it's okay.
Master of Wine Tim Hanni says there should be an overhaul of traditional pairings, which he described as pseudo-science.
‘A perfect wine pairing doesn’t exist,’ said the American expert. ‘We’re doing a lot of damage the way we’re matching wine and categorising it. We need to stop wine and food pairing.’
Mr Hanni dismissed the notion that many pairings are steeped in French cuisine, saying: ‘We made that up.’
