The pairing: Flapjacks
The movie: Groundhog Day
Now more than ever we are staying home, and as a result, the days seem to run together. There is no better movie to emulate this feeling than Groundhog Day!
One of my favorite scenes from this film is when Phil and Rita are in the Tip Top Cafe and Phil has just ordered everything on the menu. The table is full of donuts, pastries, a plateful of eggs, bacon, and sausage, a huge strawberry milkshake, and of course, flapjacks!
Flapjacks are mentioned a couple of times in the movie, and the hue of the strawberry shake is what sparked my pairing idea. There’s just one thing missing from his extravagant table spread, and that’s the perfect morning libation - our 2019 Estate Rosé of Syrah! This wine simply looks screams “morning” and would be the perfect pairing for anything on Phil's table. I might put a bit of a French twist on this with a pairing of crepes or french toast. Add some whipped cream and fresh berries to either of these and I know my day is off to a good start!
Stay tuned for the final installation of our “Eat What You Watch” series, where another team member will share their favorite pairing.
