Wine and Food Pairing 101

Pairing wine with food can be daunting. I’ve always just stuck to the age-old advice of red wine with meat and white with fish and salads. Though, now that I’m vegan, even that’s changed. So then I thought, well, red wine with heavier dishes? White with everything else? It always sounded so intimidating but over the years that I’ve learned more about wine, I began to realize it’s not as hard as I thought to pair wine with food, even if I’ve never tasted the wine before. I’m going to share a few basics that will set you up for success for creating the perfect combo.

A Melancholic Day in Austin, TX

I was born and raised in Austin, yet, there’s a part of me that just doesn’t feel like I belong. Which is a bit surprising, even to me. I mean, I’m vegan, I love music, I love quirky vintage things, so what gives? Austin should be a haven for me!

Happy Birthday To Me, Whiskey

I’ll be honest you guys, despite being a born and bred Texan, there are a lot of stereotypes that I don’t fall under. For starters, I’m vegan. I don’t hunt. I’ve never ridden a horse. And I don’t own a gun. (Although my family has quite a few).
