The modern "art" of food pairing is a relatively recent phenomenon, fostering an industry of books and media with guidelines for pairings of particular foods and wine. The main concept behind pairings is that certain elements (such as texture and flavor) in both food and wine react differently to each other and finding the right combination of these elements will make the entire dining experience more enjoyable.
The most basic element of food and wine pairing is understanding the balance between the "weight" of the food and the weight (or body) of the wine. From there a food and wine pairing can also take into consideration the sugar, acid, alcohol and tannins of the wine and how they can be accentuated or minimized when paired with certain types of food.
