Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 9, 2007
Foodies and wine lovers have a new resource when it comes to entertaining and wine pairing at http://www.corkandolive.com/recipes. There are more than 80 recipes to compliment 41 different varietals. Whether it's a Spanish Tempranillo, a German Gewrtztraminer or an Italian Sangiovese, Cork&Olive® searched wine regions across the world for authentic recipes created to compliment the wine.
Cork&Olive considered the style of the grape and the style of its customers when creating this menu. First, Cork&Olive® traced the origins of the grape and sought out traditional recipes from that region. Since most Cork&Olive® wines are less than $15 and meant to be enjoyed every day, the recipes were also chosen for their simplicity. There is nothing time consuming or complicated about these pairings.
To use this site, simply click on red, white or sparkling and then select your favorite varietal to access recipes for spectacular appetizers, scrumptious suppers or sinful desserts.
"Our wine guides hear people say that they are afraid of ruining a meal with the wrong wine choice. A good rule is to start with a wine you enjoy- and a recipe with ingredients that sound appealing to you" said Cork&Olive®'s Stephanie Nelson, who oversaw the creation of the recipe site.
At Cork&Olive®, that is easy advice to follow because customers always have a chance to try the wines before they buy them so they always buy what they know they like. Cork&Olive® features a Tasting Table which is open for tastings All Day- Every Day.
The search function on http://www.corkandolive.com/recipes is unique because it pairs the food to the wine instead of vice versa. The idea here is people will buy a bottle of wine that they enjoy or perhaps tasted at a Cork&Olive® Tasting Table and then want to plan a meal to compliment their wine. The site also features recommendations of wines available at Cork&Olive® shops throughout Florida.
