How to pair wine with food in COENA’s Wine List on iPad
It has never been so easy to pair wine with food thanks to our administration interface. In the wine details sheet, first pane, enter the keywords you’d like to associate with the wine on the right:
If you have the multi-language module enabled, you can enter the food pairing in all three languages.
Once the food pairing has been entered in the text section, customers will see it when touching one of the wine in the list. It will appear just underneath the tasting note:
Also, if you have enabled the food pairing module, customers will be able to search wines that match the keyword entered in the food pairing section:
Why wine and food pairing should be simple
In some of the iPad Wine list menu on the market, the mapping of wines with food has been made so complicated that many restaurants don’t use it. Typically, some of the solutions out there ask you to create a dish in the database so that you can link the dish to the corresponding wine through a connection/link between two tables in the database. This creates a burden to maintain, and oblige the restaurants to keep their list always accurate. For example, if a dish is not served anymore, one has to remove the link in the wine table.
At COENA, we decided to make it simple and offer a food pairing process that is easy to maintain.
