How To Pair Wine With Bar Food

how to pair wine with food mac and cheese

You’re supposed to pair your wine with the color of the sauce —the sauces here being the dish’s cheese and rue. And unless you’re at some upscale trendy bar that’s offering macaroni and cheese (and they might refer to it simply as “Mac,” those pretentious pricks!), plan to pair your wine with American cheese. Jean-Chronberg recommends a White Zinfandel. A sharper white wine option? Sauvignon Blanc. Use the same rules for quesadillas or an almost-red wine for your orange cheese, like a Rosé.
