I cook myself multi-course lunches whenever possible but I never thought about how drinks could add to the experience. Any advice? The courses generally flow as follows: 1. Soup 2. Pasta or risotto 3. A meat dish with a few cooked vegetables 4. Salad 5. Desert 6. Sweet milk coffee with a piece of chocolate 7. Citrus fruit. Lunch generally lasts about 90-120 minutes. Perhaps 1-2 glasses of wine should accompany the whole lunch? I read the French ideally start a meal off with a glass of champagne? Some others have aperitifs to end the meal? I'm a bit lost and am enjoying delving a bit into gourmandism.
