Champagne and food pairings

9. Currywurst

The bar ChampCurr in Munich offers a wide variety of Champagne and some high-class currywurst. A currywurst is a grilled or fried sausage served with ketchup and curry powder and is a signature Berlin dish. It is traditionally a fast-food in Germany, but it has been paired – with some success – with Champagne. Some street vendors also provide the option for a Champagne with your currywurst.

    Hello,
    I just wanted to point out that the ‘fancy’ word to describe how your mouth perceives food and liquids is palate, not palette. I say fancy because, strictly speaking, it is the roof of your mouth and, as I’m sure you know, most of our taste buds are located on the tongue.
    Cheerio.

  2. Ana Melo says:

    As the roof of the mouth was once considered the seat of the sense of taste, palate can also refer to this sense itself, as in the phrase “a discriminating palate”. By further extension, the flavor of a food (particularly beer or wine) may be called its palate, as when a wine is said to have an oaky palate.

    Pork pies. Sounds daft, but they work fantastically well with a dry, biscuity Champagne.

    Fancy schmancy. A few of these pairings are fine. A great bottle of champagne or $200 bottle of wine goes fine with whatever tastes good to you. Blah the rules.
