With a crispy pork and vegetable egg roll, you should choose a light, dry white wine that quenches your thirst and counterbalances the fatness of the dish.Fruity wines are ideal to bring greediness to the match, with notes of vine peach or citrus fruits, and even spicy notes for more persistence in the mouth. For more festivities, you can go for a sparkling wine, which will be even more thirst-quenching! The bubbles will bring pep and elegance to the spring rolls.
Alsatian white wines are perfect with pork nem. An Alsatian Sylvaner is a fruity wine that will refresh your dish. Also try a Pinot Gris, or a Muscat if your nem has strong salty/sweet blends. In the Rhone Valley, try a Saint-joseph that will bring spices to your spring rolls. If you want to be original, try a Beaujolais Rouge. Its lightness and fruitiness will accompany your pork buns perfectly.
You probably think that the egg roll comes from Chinese cuisine... In reality, it's a Vietnamese recipe! At the very beginning, it was a plate full of vegetables and meats. It was called the Spring Plate. The nem paste arrived much later, to roll up these assortments, hence its other name: " Les rouleaux de Printemps " (Spring rolls).
The nem developed all over Asia and became the banner of Chinese cuisine. Made from pork and vegetables, it also comes in a variety of flavours, both sweet and savoury.
In China, the egg roll is a lucky dish as it welcomes the new year and keeps disasters away... In France, whatever their symbolism, you can eat egg rolls with wine for even more delicacies!
