    I thought bears liked Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin pinot noir from 2009.. Maybe it’s better for salmon? 😉

      Ha that’s great that you remembered my last wine-pairing advice!

      Because I don’t really know much about wine, I actually researched these comics more than usual. For the previous comic, I discovered that the Pinot Noir was a good pairing with salmon because it is fairly light for a red, and has smoky, earthy notes that complement the salmon nicely.

      For today’s comic, it was a little more difficult to find a sensible wine pairing, but I did learn that a Syrah was probably the best choice, because it has some nice fruity blackberry notes that would go well with your porridge, especially if you’ve tossed a few raisins in there. (However, the Syrah can be a little spicy. If you like your porridge a bit more on the bland side, a Cabernet Sauvignon might be a safer bet.)

      Sometimes I put way more thought into a comic than I probably need to! But I thought it would be funny if a sommelier somewhere read this and thought “What the -? How did he know that?!” 🙂

      And your comment inspired me to take a look back at some of the other comics I’ve drawn that needed a bit of research. Check it out!

  2. […] Today’s Savage Chickens comic got me thinking about the amount of research that goes into creating some of my comics. Usually I do very little research for a comic. But for today’s comic about wine pairings, I had to figure out which wine would go best with a bowl of porridge. It took some searching but I finally figured out that a Syrah would be the best choice. […]
