Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year is here. A day filled with red roses, decadent chocolates, Champagne and lots and lots of amore! A very wise woman once said that, “the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. Well, who better to help us with that daunting task than Shari Darling, known as the Sophisticated Wino, best selling cookbook author, educator and creator of multiple specialty rubs? Specialty rubs??? Ahhhhhhhhhhh cooking rubs with names such as the Cajun Quickie, French Kiss and Tickle my Ribs.
See Shari’s artisan food products that harmonize with wine for the MOAN Factor.

We asked Shari, “How do you describe the moan factor” when it comes to food and wine pairing? You say in your book that “sometimes the culinary orgasm is just a happy accident” but you can show us or teach us how to produce hedonistic recipes and matching wines with that result every time? According to Shari there are three building block principles for harmony between food and wine matching that will guarantee a great result every time. Follow these basic rules and the MOAN FACTOR will be yours.
