The Menu

What did you expect, Beef Wellington? Of course we got a bucket, split between original recipe and grilled, plus an order of hot wings (what they call dipped wings around these parts), a BBQ pulled chicken sandwich, as well as a classic grilled chicken sandwich that comes with bacon and cheese.

  • I've found that a good fruit-forward Pinto Noir works with fried chicken

    I actually did a similar series for pairings on my blog with two local BYO place in Los Angeles, Chego and Starry Kitchen! Both fairly inexpensive, amazing food, and award-winning chefs doing exciting asian-inspired food. Also, don't forget that an off-dry sparkling riesling (riesling Sekt) would probably be killer with KFC food! For Chego's pairings (korean rice-bowl glory by the inventor of the Korean Taco) check out http://eronrauch.blogspot.com/2011/... and for the pairings I came up with for the more subtle Vietnamese influence of Starry Kitchen look at http://eronrauch.blogspot.com/2011/... Keep up these fun posts!

    The funny thing for me was the fact that I was eating dinner while reading this article. Rotiss. Chicken and a J Pinot Gris. Not too far from the KFC experience.

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to eat KFC chicken, therefore I can't imagine why anyone would want to pair it with a wine. Since when did wine and grease pair?

    Live a little folks. Instead of asking why all the time, ask "why not?" ;-)

    Not surprised at all that the Vouvray worked so well with a bunch of the dishes. ;-)

    Believe it or not, sparkling Gruner Veltliner, while certainly off the beaten path, is a terrific match for fried chicken, as are a number of sparkling wines and Champagne.

    I can see the Sparkling Gruner working well here, and know you'd like the Vouvray, but Champagne? Really? We have finally found a way to make you drink Champagne!

    Here's my "go-to" junk food wine: Chinon. Plenty of acid to cut through the grease, but low tannins to avoid clashing with the food. I refer to Chinon as my "KFC wine".
