Easy non chocolate dessert to pair with red wine
I've been asked to bring a dessert to a friends wine tasting. I'm looking for something easy, and that doesn't center on chocolate (someone else is doing chocolate). I was thinking panna cotta, but I've never done it before so I'm not sure how easy it will be. All I've been told is that it will be paired with a red wine, but I don't know what type.
I'm not a wine expert but I was always told that desserts go with sweet wine. Since a sweet red wine is fruity, try focusing on a dessert with berries. Strawberries are in season. Same with blueberries. I've seen a lot of raspberries at the store recently.Something with currents might be nice.
How about a pavlova or a fruit tart? I think a simple pound cake with a little citrus flavor to it would be nice with wine. Clear the pallet between glasses?
