How I Taught My Brother To Cook

Improvisational Tuscan-Provençal-Catalan Cookery (and other good stuff to eat)

I hate the term. I don't know how long it's been around but it is overused as far as I'm concerned. I consider it a "Foo-Foo" term. (Meaning to be pretentious, fashionable, trendy or chic.)

Come on, what ever happened to, "you know Coke goes well with a turkey sandwich"? No, it has to be, "we suggest a turkey sandwich paired with a Coke on ice". Crap! It bugs me, man!

Is the world trying to force me to use the term? Fine. How about, "PAIR THIS!"

I feel better now. Everybody back to what they were doing.

A search for the word "pairing" on this very site turns up the use of said word by Patrick's adoring wife .... this is happening under his own roof!
