There is no such thing as wine and food pairing. It's really wine and people pairing. A new discovery has revealed that certain people have more taste buds on their tongues than others. This means that people can be partial to areas on their tongue with more sensitivity. So in a sense, the wine is only right if the person drinking it likes that type of wine.

As far as food matching, it is a myth. Any recipe can be "balanced" with some salt, lemon, or vinegar. Bitter flavors in food will increase the perception of bitter elements in wine. Sourness and salt in food suppresses the bitter taste in wine. After the recipe is properly "balanced" it will go with any wine you choose.
