Pairings explores several of my favorite moments and pairings of wine and cheese, those that are highlighted and enhanced by each other. The text presents common sayings about couples, posing thoughts about how I feel our culture finds individuals as more complete if they are coupled up. You see the wine and cheese together, showcasing the set. Upon turning the page, the cheese stands alone and the wine is left incomplete, with a hole in the bottle.
