Flame Distribution Store


The old rules of ’red wine with meat and Chardonnay with chicken’ just aren’t good enough anymore, given the eclectic flavours available to the Australian palate. Balance shows you how we taste food and wine — and therefore what goes with what, and how you can achieve the results. It takes you through the whole process, and shows what works and why – Balance gives the principles and advice to enable you to deal with confidence with any situation that you are in.

It goes through Australia’s most popular wine varieties, and shows you just what are the key characteristics, their best food matches, and how to arrive at innovative flavour profiles. Reprinted due to popular demand after winning Fine Wine Partners Award for Best Food and Wine Writing in the Vittoria Australian Food Media Awards 2006.

Balance provides

  • Handy lists of the most sensational matches, flexible food wines and the best wine styles for restaurant styles
  • Advice on matching wine with cheese
  • A unique food and wine matching chart, detailing which wine goes with what food style
  • Tried and tested recipes for each wine style
