Food and Wine: Seasonal tastes

As months go by, our tastebuds appear to know what they want.  Doesn’t it seem more appropriate to enjoy a powerful Red, gorged with the sun of more Southern countries, when it is utterly cold out? On the other hand, a  lighter range seems much more enjoyable when it is excruciatingly hot outside. Hence us reaching out for Rosé and White wine. While season’s change, one’s wine drinking seem to be influenced by the weather.

Food and drinks are usually chosen in accordance to one another:

During the cold days of the year, we prefer richer and warming tastes. Hence our choice of  in-house casseroles, stews and roasts during the winter, accompanied by a strong red.

In the summer, I believe we mostly are looking for something refreshing, aren’t we not? Consequently, I would be more entitled to be on the lookout for fish, seafood and salads, a glass of white wine on the side.

It is amazing how our body and our mind invite us almost instinctively to a certain “art de vivre” (as say the French)!
