It’s my dad’s 75th birthday on Monday, and I’m making him his all-time favourite: steak & kidney pie. (He went to boarding school from the ages of 4 to 18, which probably explains his choice, as well as his preference for stodgy puddings and well-boiled vegetables…) My dilemma is this: he and my mum are almost exclusively white wine drinkers, much to my chagrin. So whilst I would have not even considered serving white wine with a s&k pie, I really don’t have a choice when it comes to his birthday meal.
Can anyone think of a white wine that would work?!
They both love Riesling, especially German, and they love Riesling from bone dry to lusciously sweet. But I’m just not sure that even the ever-food-friendly Riesling would work here.
