What To Drink With Dinner: The WBW21 and IMBB26 Roundup

wbw_icon.jpgWine Blogging Wednesday (WBW for short) as regular readers know, is a virtual wine tasting party, where bloggers all over the world taste wine according to the theme and then blog about it. This event was inspired by the original cooperative blogging event known as Is My Blog Burning? (IMBB), where food bloggers create or execute recipes based on a theme and then blog about it.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before these two worlds collided, and last month it happened for the first time, as the original founders of both events co-hosted something they called the Fabulous Favorites Festival. As part of this event, wine bloggers were asked to pick a favorite wine and cook a dish for it, and food bloggers were asked to pick a favorite recipe and then match a wine to it.

The result? Nearly 33 different wine and food pairings for you to drool over and learn from. Not sure what to drink with grilled cuttlefish? What about duck confit? Leek tart? Chocolate tart? Grilled pound cake? Spinach polenta? Mexican mole? There are answers to this and more waiting for you in the roundup of the May event. The first half of the wine and food pairings can be found here, and the second half can be found here.

Remember, if you want to participate in either WBW or IMBB in the future, all you need to do is let the organizers know. You can even do it if you don't have a blog. See you online for the next installment.
