As much as we’re fans of casual entertaining—stop by after work for some wine, or at 4:30 p.m. for tea time—we love to plan special entertainments.
If the planning is effortless, so much the better.
That’s why we were so pleased to discover Cookies & Corks—a young business founded by two young moms who met via their kids’ activities.
Cookies & Corks is a new twist on wine pairing: dry wines with sweet foods. The company sells cookies and recommends which types of wines to pair with them.
Then, instead of popping the cork and serving a plate of cheese, you serve a plate of cookies.
These are not just any cookies, but sweet-and-savory cookies crafted specifically to pair with the wines. Your own recipe for chocolate peanut butter cookies, for example, would need to be tweaked a bit to work as well as the Cookies & Corks version does.
Open the box, pop the cork and enjoy.
Here’s what’s in store for your get-together:
Each box offers two tasting opportunities. The simple approach is to get one bottle of wine per box of cookies. The more interesting approach is to get a bottle of each of the three wine options recommended:
You don’t need to throw a party: Cookies & Corks for a quiet movie evening is also a special event.
And the next time you give a bottle of wine, including the matching box of Cookies & Corks will make it memorable.
