Whether you’re indulging in shepherd’s pie or dim sum, there’s always a wine to match.

But what is it?

Check the portable new Drinks Matcher Widget from Natalie MacLean, publisher of Canada’s largest wine e-newsletter. This food-and-wine pairing tool can be downloaded to your desktop, social page, website or blog.

Go to www.nataliemaclean.com/matcher.

You can search by the food or by the wine, then browse through recipes or drinks reviews.

MacLean spent eight years testing the combinations for her Drinks Matcher.

“I’m a thoroughly hedonistic researcher,” she says in an email. “Of the thousands of combinations I tried, some were delicious, others were a disaster.”

That’s a lot of eating and drinking, but someone’s got to do it.
