Nuts, the perfect snacks
Spanish nuts are great allies of catering and hospitality businesses.

However, this has changed and now customers want healthy alternatives that allow them to enjoy a good time while drinking their favorite beverages alone or in company.
Therefore, pairing with nuts is an excellent alternative that will please everyone. On the one hand, a healthy snack is offered and, on the other hand, given the wide variety of options that exist, people can choose the one that best suits their preferences and the beverages they wish to consume.

Pairing with nuts, what are the best options?
Pairing is a culinary resource that refers to the practice of combining food and beverages to enhance their flavors and aromas. In this sense, as a catering business, you have the possibility to offer your customers various nuts to pair with multiple drinks, but also with other ingredients, such as chocolate.

Pairing beers with nuts
Beer pairs with a wide variety of foods, from meat and fish to seafood, chocolates and, of course, nuts.
The perfect pairing with nuts should seek harmony. For example, almonds and hazelnuts are ideal if consumed with lager or pale ale options, while dark chocolates work very well with beers such as stout.
Pairing wines with nuts
With the right wine, the flavor of nuts can be enhanced, making them offer many more nuances than if they were consumed alone. In addition, as they are snacks with a high natural fat content, they balance various compounds present in the beverage, such as tannins.
The pairing of nuts with wine offers multiple possibilities. In general, hazelnuts combine very well with aged red wines, while almonds are perfect to consume with soft white wines (muscatel, chardonnay…). Walnuts, having a stronger flavor, should be paired with powerful red wines (cabernet, pinot noir…).
Pairing vermouths with nuts
Did you know that vermouths also pair very well with different nuts? There are options for all tastes, although the most common are white vermouth, which combines with snacks such as almonds and hazelnuts, and red vermouth, ideal for appetizers such as peanuts.
Chocolate and nuts, a perfect pairing
Choosing a pairing of nuts and chocolate is always a great decision, especially if you opt for those with high cocoa content. Thus, combining them enhances the aroma and flavor of both foods, resulting in a unique, delicious and healthy culinary experience.
