These recipes are designed to showcase the joys of pairing wine and food. Many of the recipes are from menus developed by top chefs or by Wine Spectator editor at large Harvey Steiman, who explain the principles of pairing as they apply to the recommended wines—so preparing a menu is as educational as it is tasty.
You can search by type of food, by type of wine or both. Bon appetit!
NOTE: When you're looking at older menus and recipes, please bear in mind that the suggested wines will have changed over time and may no longer match up with the food in quite the same way, so you may also wish to use the Wine Search to check your selections for their recommended drink dates. If a given wine is past its prime, you can try a more recent vintage, or you can follow our pairing guidelines and select a similar bottling.
