Description

Hot Pot is a Chinese cooking method.

The hot simmering pot is surrounded by raw food ready to be cooked.

Typical ingredients are: fish, seafood, sliced meat, vegetables, mushrooms, tofu and starches (carbs) such vermicelli, noodles, dumplings or rice.

The Dipping Sauce is often made with peanut butter, sesame oil, Sa Cha (Chinese BBQ Sauce), scallions, cilantro and garlic, becoming the dominant flavor and the wine should be choosen according to it.

Hot Pot has 2 layers of flavor: spicy and savoury.

Since there are so many possible ingredients, the wine style to go for is: aromatic whites.

The best pairing is a Riesling with some residual sugar to calm the fire in your mouth.

Bubbles are always a great choice, especially if you choose a sweeter version: Extra Sec, Sec, Demi Sec.
