Wine and Dessert
So what comes to your mind when you hear the phrase, ‘wine and dessert’? Is it a glass of wine paired with a dessert? Or is it simply a dessert drowned in wine? Or is it your favourite glass of dessert wine? Well, fortunately there are many ways in which you can indulge your sweet tooth while indulging your wine craving as well.
Pairing desserts with wine
Wine and dessert pairings are legendary. From stylish actresses biting into sinful desserts while sipping wines classily in movies, to friends in a pub enjoying a hearty cake with wine and giggles, the love between the sweet and the plonk always comes through. So if you too like to have your wine and dessert separately, you will have many, many options to choose from. A wise friend had once
told me about a simple trick to remember when pairing wines with desserts – have them colour coordinated! So if you opt for a dessert that is in a lighter hue, like a lemon cheesecake, opt for a light coloured wine like Sauvignon Blanc. Similarly, a rich dessert like a decadent chocolate tart would pair beautifully with a dark port wine.
Preparing desserts with wine
If however, you are the kind who loves the wine-dessert infusion too much, then the wine dessert recipes are the things you must look out for! Many desserts use wine as an active ingredient. The ingredient not only makes the dessert irresistible, it also packs in a lot of flavour and, believe it or not, makes it healthier! Did you know that a substantial amount of butter can be substituted by wine in many desserts? So go ahead and give these delishly delectable wine desserts a try.
If you, like my good friend Amu, do not enjoy digging into a plate full of sweet treats as much as we do (yes, we pretty much are dessert addicts!), then too you will have many dessert wine options. Dessert wines are sweet wines that are typically served at the end of a meal. These wines have high sugar contents and therefore are often used as dessert substitutes at dinner parties. The sweetness quotients in dessert wines are varied and you can choose a wine based on how large your sweet tooth is.
Apart from the regular dessert wines, you can also try out the famed ice wines which are really sweet wines. These wines are made from frozen grapes and are produced in very few areas around the world. Hence these wines are quite expensive. But, if you like the celebration of sweetness in your glass of wine, then the dessert wines will prove to be an absolute treat for you.
Never desert wine!
For a dessert lover who has a weakness for wine, the options are infinite! You have the liberty to be creative when opting for the wine sweetness of your choice. So make the most of it and grab yourself some winelicious desserts.
