Our Food and Wine Pairing Philosophy
There is no doubt that great food and great
wine are delicious on their own. But when you come up with the right food and wine pairing, each
enhances the other and tastes even better. The easy gourmet recipes on Easy Food and Wine are designed to
be wine-friendly, utilizing fresh and flavorful ingredients, and each has been paired with your
pick of two wines that we've tried and tested (tough work, I know) for that dish. Just as
importantly, our recipes have been designed to be easy to prepare, and for each dish we
recommend at least one wine that is both easy to find and easy on the wallet.

and Wine Pairing Approach
So how do we make food and wine pairing
'easy'? First, we start with elegant yet surprisingly simple recipes. Nothing on our site takes
more than 30 minutes of prep time, and nothing requires rare ingredients from a specialty store.
Secondly, we pair each recipe with two wines. The first is a "Steal" wine you can find almost
anywhere around the country and priced under $15 a bottle. The second is a "Splurge" wine that may
be pricier or difficult to find without a hunt - but that will be very rewarding if you choose to
make the investment.

The Easy Food and Wine
Amy and Mike Kass are the creators of Easy
Food and Wine. We are a husband and wife team with a passion for fine wines and fun, gourmet
cuisine. Mike is the family 'chef' and Amy is the family 'wine expert'. Mike designs all the
recipes for Easy Food and Wine and Amy hand picks the wine pairings for each of Mike's dishes. We
then work together tasting each food and wine pairing to make sure they make the grade before
bringing them to you. We'd love to hear your food and wine pairing story - email us
