The rules for food and wine pairing have relaxed a bit, but the fact remains that certain flavors of food and wine mix better together than others. While it isn’t unheard of to have a white wine with meat or a red wine with fish or seafood, you don’t want to serve a very strong tasting wine with a delicate entree, or the other way around. The wine and the food should complement each other, not battle against each other.
