Summer Wine and Food Pairings

Beer and brats? Sure. But how about Beaujolais and brats, Riesling and ribs or Champagne and charbroiled burgers? By Up to Date

Kansas City, MO –


One doesn't need to look much further for a good pairing of wine and summer food than today's program with Doug Frost, host of KCPT TV's Kansas City version of "Check, Please!" and one of three people in the world to hold the dual designation Master Sommelier and Master of Wine.

Frost joins Stephen Steigman and Chef Ted Habiger of Room 39 for an in-studio tasting and discussion about wine pairings (and beer, too) for your summer gathering. Whatever your plans entail - from a backyard barbecue to a large gathering under a tent or a park picnic, you're sure to learn something new about wine and discover a variety you might not have considered before.
