ZiNG! Fearless Food and Wine Together Logo

We’re all here because we love food and wine, especially when we eat and drink it together and the experience is magically better together than if consumed separately; when the combination, the whole, is greater than the sum of its parts.

We want everyone to know they too can have that experience, that it is not a privilege reserved for the few, but rather something that is accessible to all. We are going to take away the smoke & mirrors surrounding food and wine pairing and show your customers, clients and colleagues how to demystify it all.

We are going to look BEHIND what happens when food and wine together zing!, when the magic happens and also - when it doesn’t. We’re here because we all want to do the best job we can. We want to understand, to simplify and most importantly, to show other people. We are going to explore the behind the scenes processes and understand what is relevant to zing! If you understand the seemingly complex stuff, you will be able to explain it simply, and that’s the real trick. This is NOT that complicated.

We have figured out the relevant elements in each, we see what happens when they go together - simply - and then you’ve got the roadmap for fearless food and wine together.

The ZiNG! Thing is a wine education project founded by Patricia Rogers, based on her book the ZiNG! thing: fearless FOOD AND WINE together.


An innovative, breakthrough method of food and wine pairing using proven, unbiased chemistry. The concepts are clear, very fun to learn and much easier than you think! Most works.
