Christmas Food and Drink Pairings in Cambridge

Looking for Christmas Food and Drink Pairings in Cambridge? We, at F&D events, specialise in bespoke food and drink events to make your end of year get together a success. Everyone has their own favourites when it comes to washing down food, whether it’s that ice cold bottle of designer beer with your Scotch egg, a frosty glass of soda to go with your pepperoni pizza, or the classic Earl Grey tea and scones.

Selecting drinks that complement a dish can bring out subtle elements of flavour that you didn’t even know existed. But how do know what to match together? The trick is in identifying the key flavours in your food and pairing it with those of the liquid partner. We, here at F&D events, are well-known for adventurous food and drink pairings. Since they emerged as one of the highlights of our food walking tours, we decided to create a few more. Our Masterclasses can be booked as a stand-alone event or as part of a food tour or another food experience.

No. 1 Sherry and Tapas Masterclass

There is a huge misunderstanding about the word ‘tapas’. Many people think it’s just bite size food. Tapas are snacks, canapés or finger food and come in many different forms and shapes. They can vary from town to town and for example, in the Basque country, where they originate, are called ‘Pinchos’. More
