Drink & Pair is a Food and Wine pairing blog by Maurice K. Beaver.  For decades I worked in the hospitality industry in France, Scotland, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec before settling in Nova Scotia, where I now live with my two cats Fino & Oloroso. 

I began my career as a dishwasher at a private golf club in Mississauga, Ontario, but was soon promoted to bartender, and eventually bar manager. From there I worked at dozens of resorts, restaurants and clubs across the globe where I’ve managed wine lists and worked with thousands of happy customers to decide upon the perfect wine for their dinner, event, banquet or wedding.

I started this food and wine pairing blog as I saw a void for common food and wine pairing recommendations.  You tend to either get super fancy foods and expensive wines paired together in articles, or you get generic recommendations like pair chicken with white wine.  Thus, here I am, trying to fill in the gaps for common food dishes and delicious wines.  I hope you enjoy my blog.
