Wine can blend beautifully with a variety of dishes including meat, risotto, soup, and shellfish. The rich notes of red wine or delicate flavor of white both work to make these recipes toast-worthy.
The people of Belgium dine on moules-frites, a staple dish of mussels and French fries. Try your hand at this international favorite. Steam mussels and place them in this savory wine broth. Lighten up the traditional way by having some plain toasted bread handy to soak up the broth. A glass of chilled white wine goes nicely with this dish.
