Remember Mad Libs?  I had so many of those books, putting in random nouns and adjectives that never made sense when the story was over.

A friend sent me a grown-up version for us foodies, as featured in Food & Wine magazine. (Thanks Katie!)

I think it’s more fun to not peek, so I’m listing the words you have to come up with here first.  Then, pop them into the story below and see what you came up with. 🙂

Food & Wine is also encouraging readers to tweet a photo of your filled-in page to @fandw using #FWWordGames and they’ll be posting some of them on their website!

I also came across a nifty wine guide as featured on theKitchn.    Wine Folly created a great color coded-chart for wine and food pairings.

However, I have to admit that the one tip I inherited from my dad is you don’t drink white until you’re out of red. 😉
