AVEC ERIC | Episode 8: Perfect Pairings PREVIEW | PBS

Duration: 00:59
Program: Avec Eric #108

In this episode, Eric explores the fundamental relationship between food and wine, in which perfect pairings serve to elevate the quality of each. We begin at Le Bernardin where Eric and his Sous Chefs challenge his Chef Sommelier, Aldo Sohm, to find the perfect wine pairing to accompany a spicy new crab salad. Eric then travels to California to visit the Iron Horse vineyard where they make a great sparkling wine that pairs beautifully with melon, tomatoes and fresh goat cheese. Back home with lots of inspiration, Eric again challenges Aldo to create perfect pairings with 3 canapés salmon rillette, garlic herbed goat cheese, and guacamole.
