I can imagine that this works two ways: 1) The sweetness of the moscato helps cut through the unctuousness of the foie gras sushi; 2) moscato adds another dimension as like sipping red wine after having a piece of steak melt in your mouth #dinner #food #sushi #foodgasm @giantdonkey @klutzy_duh #singlegirldinner  (at Sushi of Gari East)

Happy cooking!
