COPA JEREZ Meet the Team Ödenturm Germany
Describe Sherry in 3 words
Delicious, varied, noble.
Do you have a philosophy when it comes to pairing Sherry with food, or for creating food to pair with Sherry?
The Sherry aromas should harmonize with the food and vice versa. But it should be always a tasteful kick, an aroma that surprises - this makes the duo really exciting.
What is your favorite non-traditional Sherry pairing?
For a BBQ-Party our favorite is: Smoky pulled pork, BBQ- Sauce & coleslaw paired with Oloroso. The couple fit perfectly and the guests are always impressed.
Why did you want to participate in Copa Jerez?
Because Sherry is a great wine with a long tradition and culture and brilliant future. We want to be part of Sherry by increasing the interest and the knowledge of Sherry to our guest.
If you could serve your pairings from Copa Jerez anywhere in the world other than your restaurant
