Cognac and Food

Cognac desert

I guess like most of the people you see the cognac as a digestive, yes? Well open up your mind and let yourself surprised by a new experience today, because believe it or not,  this perfect distilled spirit is an ideal platform to enhance food flavor…

XO straight? VSOP with little ice?

When it comes of pairing cognac and food, anxiety will even rise from people who never worry about what clothes to wear when going out in public. And suddenly they are facing a life or death decision.
Hopefully for us, we can find rules about cognac pairing but remember that they are not written in stone, and it is all a matter of opinion. Sure… there is food and cognac association which does not make the happiest marriage. Like peppers, chiles and very hot spices.

“Food’ flavors always reveals the quality of a cognac and exalts it. In turn, the quality of a cognac enhances the pleasure of a food”

We are very lucky that passionate foody people with a lot of time and cognac in their hand, decided to sacrifice themselves for a hard labor: Find harmonious and exclusive concordance of delicious food and cognac.

Once again we are dealing with a matter of individual taste but here is some options that we invite you to discover and explore:

You can play the contrast card with savoury foie gras melting in the mouth with a young very cold, almost iced, young cognac. Recommended by Richard Hennessy.
Then maybe a smoked fish like Salmon? The richness of the fish & oil soften the wild youthfulness of a VSOP. Or try King Prawns Flambées in a VS Cognac, simple and divine decadence in your plate which is going to awake your taste buds!
As for dessert, older cognac with vanilla notes is a perfect match with Fine Chocolate or Rich Creamy Cheese.

Remember that the only limit is your imagination and thatwhat we are looking for is to soften the alcohol and crisp acidity, with rich, fatty texture such as cream, dairy, cheese, fats, sweets.

Practice makes it perfect!
Now, think about a kind of food that you eat on a regularly basis; your favorite meal maybe? You know, this one plate that you can almost anticipate its taste before mealtime. Then pair it with a Cognac of your choice, just do it!

And don’t worry about trying to establish a perfect match; this is all a learning experience. I am sure you will make a good reasonable choice, and most of all I want to hear from you to know how MUCH did you enjoy, allez Santé !

I will be happy to answer any of your questions.
