锅塌豆腐配Chateau Mouton Rosthchild
Northern Style Fried Tofu and Chateau Mouton Rothschild
Northern Style Fried Tofu is a classic Shandong cuisine, whose popularity has spread all over China by the end of Qing Dynasty. To make the dish, one first heats up a small amount of oil, then fries the lightly battered tofu squares over low heat until golden on all sides. The tofu is then braised in a stock until the juice is reduced to a rich sauce. Well-cooked Northern Style Fried Tofu has a golden appearance, is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, accompanied by a scrumptious sauce. It can be nicely paired with a celebrated Mouton Rothschild, a classic Bordeaux left bank cru made with high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a touch of Petit Verdot. The strong structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the blackberries scents are great match for the rich flavours of Shandong cuisine. Autumn 2015. Austin Zhang.
