When you go to a fancy restaurant, there is often a wine expert on staff to help you find the perfect pairing.
- That is the term for finding the perfect wine to go with a specific meal, one that accentuates the food instead of masking it.
The right wine can take a meal to a whole other level. I am not a chef, I am a scholar, movie critic, and writer, and yet I seek to achieve something very similar. I have started working with the owner of the local medical cannabis dispensary about starting a themed movie night in their smokers lounge. We want to find a series of amazing films, and then create a “perfect pairing” with a specific kind of medical cannabis to enhance the movie and take it to another level. For my first offering, I want to show the classic drinking movie Beerfest, specifically to pair it with a new brand of cannabis drinks that I have been enjoying. Instead of smoking weed for the film, it would be more in the spirit to use cannabis drinks instead. After that I would like to try showing the classic horror movie The Fog, just so we can try and fog the room out with medical cannabis smoke! If we turn off the ceiling fans, then the medical cannabis smoke should collect in the room over the course of the movie, and make it as foggy as the movie itself! This is obviously a work in progress, but I want to try different combinations of films and medical cannabis products and see what works best!
