Fun piece in the Chronicle’s Uncorked last week on junk foods, but aren’t we done with this topic? I interviewed Mike Pierce of Maverick in November of 2007 about his off beat Wine Wednesday seminars and his penchant for tossing back wine with Cool Ranch Doritos. (He told me Russian River Pinot Noir, not Pinot Gris).
But anyway, why don’t we stop encouraging Americans to eat processed junk? If they want to wade in a cesspool of Carrageenan and Monosodium Glutamate, let them do it with corn syrup based beverages or at best, a cheap beer. Wine is made from fruit and soil, so drink it with real food.
That’s all I have to say about that.
