Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Port with pancake with chocolate sauce

    Port is strong and this makes it a great drink to have alongside your pairing_Dish_name. The pairing_drink_ingredients in the drink play nicely with the pairing_Dish_flavour_profile flavours in the food.

  • Take bacon and maple syrup pancake to the next level

    When ordering bacon and maple syrup pancake, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of americano, a popular coffee.

  • A great drink pairing for berry pancake

    Knowing what to pair with berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.

Factoids

  • The best day for pancake

    It’s National Pancake Day on September 26. You better not forget! Grab your pancake and celebrate!

  • The record holder

    A giant waffle was made in June of 2013 which weighed an incredible 110 pounds 4 ounces!

  • A tasty first

    Eggs Benedict has an interesting history, but it is generally agreed upon that it originates from The United States. The tasty dish has become immensely popular and sought after throughout the world.
