Dare to pair: food and wine pairings for game day

When you next have the guys over to watch football, why not try to be a little bit more daring and different and create something beyond the typical game, food and beer?  

You can play with recipe ideas and then invite friends over to test them out.  For example, you can easily get creative with some food and wine pairing, and while most people think that combining good wine with beef as fine dining, you will be impressed with what it can do to a burger. 

Being willing to experiment with food and wine pairings often leads to success and you can started by trying a recipe for mixed meat burgers for your next game day crowd. By putting wine right into the ground beef it makes the flavors of both the burger and the wine really sing. Spice it all up with this delicious recipe for creole mustard tomato jam.
