THE FOUNDATIONWhich foods pair best with Scotch? Matthew Fergusson-Stewart from Glenfiddich offers a few handy foundational tips for planning your whisky menu.
- Try to bring out new flavors by creating synergy among the ingredients presented.
- Avoid strongly bitter or garlicky flavors - they will kill some of whisky's flavors.
- Pair dishes that compliment, but don't match. For instance, you don't want to match the smokiness of a Scotch with smoked salmon.
