Food and Wine Guide: Dishes that You Can Pair with Prosecco

Prosecco is a sparkling Italian white wine that has become popular over the years in the UK. On top of being affordable, this wine goes well with any occasion, whether it's a birthday celebration, a picnic or an ordinary weekday night.

While you can always consume Prosecco on its own, you can pair it with certain foods to enhance your dining experience. This wine can bring out the best in many cuisines.

Here is a pairing guide you can consider when you have a bottle of Prosecco with you:

Prosecco and Italian Dishes

Italian cuisine is all about highlighting the natural flavours of ingredients. Italian food takes these ingredients to the next level by using the complementarity of certain foods and going for delicate seasoning.

Prosecco’s natural restrained and delicate flavours never contradict or overpower Italian dishes. This wine, as a matter of fact, often amplifies and sustains food items, thanks to its crisp acidity.

A couple of dishes that pair deliciously with the bubbly wine are:

Prosecco and Italian Cheese

Some Italian cheeses are mild and creamy, which are a great match with Prosecco. The acidity of the wine effectively cuts through the creaminess of the cheeses. A couple of the wine-and-cheese combinations you can go with are:

Prosecco and Japanese Food

Japanese cuisine is tasty, yet always subtle and elegant. Seafood, rice, vegetables, noodles, tofu and soy are staples in Japan. These delicately flavoured ingredients need the right wine.

Japanese food works well with Prosecco. This wine throws subtle amounts of gently citrusy and floral flavours that complement (but not overpowers) the dishes. Additionally, the natural acidity of Prosecco offers further vibrancy to the tasting experience. You can pair this wine with great Japanese dishes, such as Takoyaki (octopus balls), Nimono (thick broth with artichoke and shrimps) and Nigiri Sushi (sushi consisting of a raw fish slice over pressed, vinegared rice).
