The trick with food matching is to experiment and have a try. It is down to personal preference and there are no rules. To save your taste buds from a challenging assault, follow these 3 guiding principles to keep you on the path of successful matching:
Use a cider that cleanses the palate, or helps cut through richness.
Use a cider that provides an entirely different sensation to that offered by the food to create a balanced spectrum of flavour.
Use a cider that accentuates similar flavours in the food to bring them to the fore.
