Drink pairing tips

  • Vieux Carre with your heavy meat dish

    The flavors of heavy meat dish will be enhanced with a glass of oaked Vieux Carre, a cocktail that cuts through the heaviness of the dish.


  • Kentucky 75 and fried chicken


    When considering what goes best with fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Kentucky 75, it truly complements the dish as it cuts the fat of the fried skin.


  • Go for Chardonnay with shellfish

    To elevate your shellfish experience, we recommend some Chardonnay to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine balances richness with acidity.

Factoids

  • A historical dish

    Ruth Graves Wakefield is widely recognized as the first person to ever make the now-famous chocolate chip cookies.

  • July = American festival

    Pittsburgh, The United States is the proud home of the annual Picklesburgh Festival, held every July to celebrate everything that is good about American.
