Wine with Chicken Paprikash?
What wine would go well Chicken Paprikash? I'm struggling with this one. Thanks for any suggestions!
Funny you should ask. My mom just came to visit this weekend for a Hungarian food lesson extravaganza. One night was chicken paprikas.
I am not sure if it would be textbook appropriate, but we served a cabernet franc that was outstanding with the dish. It seemed to compliment the mushrooms in the sauce perfectly.
Oremus's Tokaji (a dry, winey 100% Furmint) or a dry Alsatian Pinot Gris for a white.
The Cabernet Franc's an interesting suggestion for a red. Along the same lines, a supple Kekfrankos from Hungary (or its Austrian counterpart Blaufrankisch).
(sorry, can't do the accents)
I also like carswell's Oremus suggestion
I like the wine suggestions - having a bottle myself tonight with George Lang's version of REAL Hungarian Chicken Paprikash. As for the other postings.... garlic?.... mushrooms????? really???
