The Dish: Chicken Rice
Hainanese chicken rice gets its name from the dish’s creation by Hainanese immigrants in Southeast Asia. This local obsession features rice cooked in chicken stock, garlic and ginger, topped with roasted, white or braised chicken and a tricky-to-match garlic chilli.

Damien Laureau Savennieres Les Genets 2010

$56
Origin: Loire Valley
Grape: Chenin Blanc
A sprightly white with acidity to complement the starch and umami of the rice, vibrant floral note to accentuate the protein and a body sufficiently rich to support both drink and dish.
