Move Over Beer, Website Suggests Champagne with Potato Chips

Natalie MacLean, author of Red, White and Drunk All Over: A Wine-Soaked Journey from Grape to Glass, believes you can drink wine with just about any food. The proof: how about Champagne with potato chips?

It might drive the French crazy, but that is one of the recommendations you will find at www.nataliemaclean.com/matcher.

MacLean, who has won four James Beard Journalism Awards and whose recent book was named Best Wine Literature Book at the World Gourmand Cookbook Awards, matches classic dishes to wine along with some odd items -- from Jello to TV dinners. In fact the matcher on her site has 360,000 food and wine pairings, plus recipes.

Still stumped? I've found that wine by itself is pretty good, too.
