What to Pair with Milk?
If you're like us, you've dabbled in pairing foods with wine, beer, soda and maybe even tea and coffee, but Anneli Rufus is mixing it up by investigating milk pairings. That's right, advice on what foods to eat with milk. She even goes as far as kefir and buttermilk. Check it out:
"Sweet corn works well with summer milk, either grilled on the cob with garam-masala or chipotle-lime butter or in the traditional Pennsylvania German corn pie, meant to be topped with warm milk and butter. I see both the sweetness of the corn and the sweetness of the milk playing off each other very well: two entirely different kinds of sweet, one animal-grown, one earth-grown, both juicy and summery.
"Sweet, mild winter milk begs for sweet and tart treatments with flavors that won't overpower the milk. Roasted things immediately jump to my mind: roasted sweet potatoes and beets with caramelized shallots; roasted chicken; focaccias with browned sweet toppings like caramelized onions or grapes and fennel seeds," Seidel suggests.
