Chapter 55: 4 & 5
The Order of Precedence of Blessings

4.If a type of food which requires the blessing borey pri ho'eitz or one which requires the blessing borey pri hadomoh is placed before one, together with a type of food which requires the blessing shehakol, the blessings borey pri ho'eitz and borey pri hadomoh are given priority. They are considered more important because they are more specific, including only one particular type of food, while shehakol includes many types.

Even when one prefers the food which requires the blessing shehakol, one should still grant priority to foods which require the blessings borey pri ho'eitz and borey pri hadomoh.

5. The blessing borey minei mezonos takes precedence over the blessing for wine. This [precedence] surely applies to the blessing hamotzi, which takes precedence even over the blessing borey minei mezonos.

Accordingly, on the Sabbath and festivals, when one recites kiddish on wine, one should cover the bread, so that it "should not see its shame," that the blessing on wine is being recited before it. Similarly, in the morning, when one recites kiddish and then eats pastry, the pastry should be covered during kiddish.
