Let's change things up and try one beer with three different foods. For this meal of a cheese plate, creamy mushrooms and chocolate cake, we need a beer that can stand up to the challenges—a hefeweizen. Wheat beers have a long history as a cheese accompaniment, just like wheat crackers. They allow the cheese to shine off of the sweetness of the wheat. For noodles and mushrooms, a wheat beer will provide a contrast to umami mushrooms. Finally, for the chocolate cake, a hefeweizen will bring a complementary banana flavor to each bite.
Champagne, Pinot Noir & Tawny Port
Sarah Pierre from 3 Parks Wine recommends these wines to get the romance flowing: for the cheese course, Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec, France - a slightly sweeter style Champagne way to start the Valentine's Day Dinner; for dinner, a Becker Pinot Noir from Pfalz, Germany; and to cap off the evening, a rich Croft Tawny Port.
