    Food and Wine Matching – August 2023

    Several Summer Salads While I am not known for being overly-enthusiastic about salads, after much recent nutritional advice from well-informed observers, such as Chris van Tulleken and Tim Spector, highlighting the dangers of consuming too much overly-processed food, they are definitely going to be served more frequently chez Yapp in the future. It has taken […]

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 31 – 'Rieslings To Be Cheerful'

        David Chandler: "As far as David is concerned, it’s as German as wearing socks in your sandals and equally as appealing, but in this episode, Jason plies him with five compelling and zesty reasons why he’s just plain wrong about Riesling.

They're a bit more delicate than regular potatoes, so they won't overpower the meat. The pea shoots and mint add a […]

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 30 – 'Rosé Tinted Glasses'

        David Chandler: "Time was when rosé, was like the viola of the wine world; a faintly embarrassing, Barbie-pink hybrid, neither red enough nor white enough to be taken seriously, and rarely music to anyone's ears. But times have changed along with the climate and what might once have been a lunchtime indiscretion on […]

    Spears of Destiny The U.K. asparagus season is necessarily short officially running from Saint George's day, which is also 'National Asparagus Day' on the 23rd April until 21st June.

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 29 – 'Pinot Noir'

        David Chandler: "If there's one thing David has learned from Jason during their many Adventures In Wine podcasts, it's that you simply can't have too many favourites. Favourites are Jason's life-blood; favourite regions and appellations, favourite vineyards, growers and restaurants; favourite sommeliers, even and of course, favourite grapes. Not as fruity as some […]

On a recent trip we managed to book a bijou but well-appointed studio apartment in […]
