Another staple in vegetarian homes, especially when we have guests, is Paneer. Paneer (cottage cheese) is soft, creamy, mouth-coating, and works best with an unoaked or lightly oaked Chardonnay. For example, a Chablis from France or a South Australian Chardonnay from Adelaide. The mouthwatering acidity of these wines will cleanse your palate and refresh you for the next bite.
