SIX COURSES: The salad: Riesling meets the challenge

The last time we did this article we talked about the sequence of wine being as important as the matching of wine to the meal. That it was necessary to start with your lightest whites and end with your full-bodied reds. This can create a challenge when following the European tradition of putting the salad after the main meal. In most cases, a full-bodied red would not pair well with a salad, so what do you do now? The next phase of the sequence is residual sugar. (dryer to sweeter). This allows you to follow a red with a white. The wine choice we made would go well with the salad recipe whether you choose it alone or within the meal progression and would work if you chose to have the salad before or after the main meal. We recommend an off-dry Riesling, as the light sweetness will really complement the dressing, cheeses and nuts found in the salad, and, of course, the greens of the salad, but not be as sweet as the wine you would chose to pair with dessert. This wine varietal loves foods and pairs nicely with a spectrum of choices.

Penny Arcade Expo showcases hot new video games, developers all in one place

Two heavily armored, gun-toting super soldiers encounter each other in the crowded halls of the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. They each bear a striking resemblance to the Master Chief from the “Halo” video game series. No violence erupts, no chase ensues. The two simply nod to one another as they pass. It’s a bit like two motorcyclists gesturing to each other in silent acknowledgment of their shared passion.
