    READING / WRITING ACTIVITY

    Take a look at the following article which presents certain guidelines to pair food and wine and answer the questions on the following page.

    The history of wine and food matching can be traced back to Roman times. Why did people in ancient times find it so special to drink wine with their food? Some of the answers may include: - Because clean water was difficult to obtain. - Because wine is an excellent digestor. - Because wine made parties and dining more festive.

    The French were the first to truly explore the benefits of matching food and wine. Chef Auguste Escoffier developed new cooking methods designed to enhance both wine and his culinary preparations. Escoffier established certain general guidelines that are still followed today. One of these guidelines establishes the following:

    White wine with fish or poultry: This is considered a good combination because the acidity in white wine helps soften the natural flavors of fish without subduing it. The combination adds a level of richness to both the wine and the fish that is not possible to achieve when the two are consumed independently.

    Red wine with meat: A red wine full of character will also augment the flavors of meals that include red meat. White wine would simply be lost in a heavy meal.

    Nevertheless, this tendency is gradually changing, as people are starting to experiment with new matches that suit their taste. Today's trend is that pairing food with wine is more a matter of personal taste, but the food should not overwhelm the wine or viceversa. The following three principles will be very helpful when matching a meal with a wine:

    Intensity: The intensity of food should be matched with the intensity of wine. For example, you should match a full-bodied Colchagua Cabernet Sauvignon with a rich steak meal, or a lighter Aconcagua Sauvignon Blanc with a delicate seafood dish.

    Sweetness: Sweet wine will go well with sweet foods, and acidic wines will pair well with sour foods. For example, a sweet Late Harvest will be a good companion for sweet desserts, while a dry Maipo Riesling will go well with an apple dessert.

    Flavors: You should try to combine the predominant flavor in the food with the same flavor in the wine. For example, match the citrus flavors in a Casablanca Chardonnay with a chicken with lemon sauce.

    The best advice when pairing wine with food is to experiment and discover for yourself which food and wine combinations you like best. Salud!

    VOCABULARY: POULTRY: Domesticated birds, like chickens, turkeys,

    TO PAIR: To match, to establish as a good combination TO TRACE BACK: To determine the origins of something ANCIENT: Old TO DINE: To eat, to have dinner TO ENHANCE: To intensify, to magnify GUIDELINE: Guide, indication

    TO SOFTEN: TO SUBDUE: TO ACHIEVE: TO AUGMENT: TO SUIT:

    ducks, etc. (here) To make less notorious To neutralize To reach a goal or objective To increase, to make bigger To meet the needs of, to satisfy

    TO OVERWHELM: To overpower, to subdue, especially with superior forces

    Note that when reporting what somebody else said, usually there is a change of tense, and the original

    words in the present are reported in the past tense. Similarly, if the original words were in the past, then

    exercises.

    is > was
