Marriage involves 3 phases: first of all deceit, as we hide our failings to promote our qualities; then, turbulence, as we detect our spouse’s failings. A gentle stand-off begins, concessions set in. In the final phase, reason takes a hold: our personalities are no longer those of our first meeting. At this point, reconstruction begins. The same process applies to matching up food and wine: two distinct personalities. If the association works, neither has the upper hand, neither is subjugated. A new personality shines through and tastes evolve… Resonance works its magic.
