Drink pairing tips

  • The ultimate drink pairing for pork in sticky soy glaze

    Knowing what to pair with 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 dim sum

    When having dim sum, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Blanc de Blanc, a popular sparkling wine.

Fun facts

  • 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 meal

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