Hey There! Thank you for stopping by CTP!
My name is Dani and I started this blog to inspire cooks and diners alike that there is more to a meal besides food–whether its wine, beer, juice, soda, coffee, or tea, there is a perfect beverage pairing for any meal you make. I am excited to help you discover the wonderful world of food pairings and make each of your meals even more incredible.
Today I reside in northern Nevada, but my journey into the beverage industry began in Las Vegas. Having spent my college years and the beginning of my adult life there, I have Vegas to thank for launching my career in wine and beer. I worked as a buyer for one of the major properties on the strip and was surrounded by a community of great sommeliers and wine enthusiasts. From them, and a lot of books, I became a Certified Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers and the International Sommelier Guild, a Certified Cicerone (the equivalent of a beer sommelier), and a Certified Sake Specialist.
Today, my job is educating coworkers and the public all about beer, wine, spirits and sake. I believe there is always something new to learn within this incredible world of dining and I am excited to share the things I’ve learned with you through this website.
