Favourite Wines for Popular “Take-Out and Dine In” Meals
Over the past two years, as we have lived through the Pandemic, the ongoing restaurant closures and “stay-at-home” requirements have presented a challenge for the family chefs who are relied upon to create healthy, appetizing home cooked meals every day. Finding the inspiration, and drive, to keep food fun and interesting, day in and out, is not an easy task for the home cook. So it comes as no surprise that there is a growth in popularity of food delivery services as home cooks integrate more take-out into their weekly meal plans.
We love our favourite classic take-out and grab ’n go eats. Beyond comfort, there is a lot of fun being creative with these meals and complimenting them with interesting and inexpensive wines. A few simple rules. and a little imagination, can light up the paper bagged ‘utility’ meals. Here are a few of our favourite take-out options and some geeky wine pairing experiments to spice up your menus.
