Jermaine Stone of the Wine and Hip Hop Podcast fame also produces a street food and wine series called Tasting Notes from the Streets where street food is paired with wines from around the world. Quench editor-in-chief Gurvinder Bhatia joined Jermaine for this episode pairing Ontario Gamay with the classic Mumbai street food vada pao at NYC’s Rowdy Rooster – part of the Unapologetic Food group – with James Beard Award-winning chef Chintan Pandya.
In this episode of Tasting Notes from the Streets, Jermaine and Terrance venture to Rowdy Rooster in the East Village of NYC to get some hot takes on pairing Canadian Gamay with Indian street food classic vada pao. Fortunately they’ve got Gurvinder Bhatia, Editor of Quench Magazine on deck, to make sure they’ve got the insider look at what makes Gamay from Ontario so special, and why it goes so well with this carb-on-carb snack, specially prepared for the team by chef Chintan Pandya. Huge thanks to Rowdy Rooster (part of The Unapologetic Food Group) for hosting us, and to the team from the Wine Marketing Association of Ontario for providing us with footage of the vineyards.
