To kick off Global TV’s star-packed premiere week, Food Network Canada celebrates the marriage between food and TV watching with its kick-ass guide to themed menu pairings starting with powerhouse series The Good Wife (which we LOVE. Go Alicia!)

Good-Wife-3

Let’s be real: you are a modern day superhero. You are an awesome mom who’s calm under pressure, yet protective; you’re a boss at the office, bringing suits to their knees with your cool demeanor and legal prowess, all the while channeling a Vogue editor as you stroll down the hallway in tailored pencil skirts and blazers. Or you’re the other 90 percent of the population.

Either way, you can appreciate a strong woman at the top of her game and live for Sunday nights anchored by a full-to-the-brim glass of red wine and The Good Wife. Not to mention, your Sunday lineup just got a presidential size bump with new series Madam Secretary. We’re giving you full permission to kick your feet up, eat until your blazer pops and drink until Will becomes a distant memory (kidding – no amount of alcohol can do that).

Let’s kick things off with a tequila infused cocktail or two – not only does it bring you closer to Will and Alicia, it serves as the perfect palate cleanser for your main dish: Fully loaded pizzas, and if you’re feeling extra ambitious infuse said dough with beer. Will would have wanted it that way. Arrest your guests with the mother (in-law) of all pies: a Jackie-Florick inspired mince pie. Proceed with caution as you serve the grand finale — wine steeped plums and/or peaches. No objections here!

Madame Secretary and The Good Wife premiere Sunday, September 21st on Global TV starting at 8pm ET/PT.
