Harley & Lara Pair Orange Chicken Takeout with Wine | Wine and Cheeseburger

In this episode, Harley Morenstein challenges sommelier Lara Amersey to elevate mall food court-favorite, orange chicken, with an off-dry vino for the perfect cheap date night in. Tune in to see Harley give dating advice and a chopstick tutorial while Pinot-pundit Lara is tasked with finding a wine sweeter than the treacly Chinese takeout. Will they pull it off? Will they makeout? Why is there a gorilla serving sorbet? Only one way to find out, clink!

Thrillist presents: Wine and Cheeseburger, featuring fry-gobbler and good dude Harley Morenstein. Wine, when not served from a box or being slapped in a bag, has a pinkies-out intimidation factor. Harley’s joined by professional wino Lara Amersey to swap all your food-pairing pains for champagne. In each episode, Harley brings an iconic fast food meal to the table, and Lara pulls up a chair with three prospective vinos. Learn all about mouthfeel, tannins and other fancy wine-speak courtesy of Lara while Harley mostly counters with chaotic energy and hacks he learned from the internet. It’s the perfect mélange! Does this mean they’ll start serving wine at drive-thrus?
