Drink pairing tips

  • The best drink pairing for pork in sticky soy glaze

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for pork in sticky soy glaze can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Riesling. This, off-dry, white wine balances the sweet and tangy pork in sticky soy glaze.

  • The ideal pairing for steamed fish

    Experts recommend pairing a steamed fish with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

Factoids

  • The go-to pairing

    Often regarded as one of the most traditional drinks in China, baijiu is a favorite choice across the country, often prepared with sorghum.

  • A classic dish

    Making peking duck, often paired with pancakes and soy sauce, is a long-held tradition in China.
