Wine and Soup Pairing
Healthy Bread by Sophia creates dishes which are accompanied by wine pairing recommendations, as I am a firm believer in the idea that true gastronomy should be a marriage of food and drink. Pumpkin-chestnut soup pairs well with aromatic white wines. Greek varieties such as Athiri and Muscat (Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains) or French such as Chenin Blanc make aromatic white wines; these wines do not overpower the hearty flavours of pumpkin and chestnut. These pairings are especially good because the wines have fruity aromas with hints of citrusy notes which complement the pumpkin's natural sweetness and the variety of fresh flavours — winter vegetables and herbs. Fruity without being too sweet, these wine and soup combinations will make you feel like you are in a snowy countryside.
