    Food and Wine Matching – November 2022

    Cheese Board A foodstuff to which I have an enduring penchant and has received insufficient attention on this website is cheese. Happily, I like many different types from many different places and, although I really appreciate British cheese, which is enjoying a Renaissance I never foresaw, I also hold the cheeses of France in high […]

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 25 – 2020 Vintage Viognier

        David Chandler: "This time, Jason's and David's oenological explorations centre upon one small and very special area of France; the 209 hectares around Condrieu, that are home to the legendarily tricky to grow and hard to vinify, Viognier vine. The effort, though, produces a uniquely aromatic wine that has become one of the […]

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 24 – Investing in Wine

        For this special edition of Adventures in Wine, David hunkers down with Tom Ashworth over a single (yes, you read that correctly, 'single') bottle of wine: an investment grade Pauillac, Grand-Puy-Lacoste that has lain unopened since 2005. It's a perfectly sumptuous sip, of course, but leaving your wine to languish in the cellar, […]

        David Chandler: "Glass is getting more expensive, cardboard's getting costlier, fuel prices are going through the roof and labour is hard to find... On top of that, in 2021, French wine-makers were hit with a Spring frost that wiped out a significant part of their crop. What's left, may hardly make a dent […]

    Salad Days Salad season is upon us and I love salad. I especially like salad that contains additional exotic ingredients such as croutons, eggs, anchovies, mozzarella, tuna fish, prawns, chorizo – basically, anything that categorically isn't salad.   This combination of chopped fennel and sliced radishes that we served with a light vinaigrette dressing has […]

    Collecting Corkscrews

    Our founder Robin Yapp started our corkscrew collection incrementally and somewhat incidentally in the 1970s and we have extended it over the ensuing decades with contributions from colleagues, customers, wine-makers and well wishers. It is an opportunist archive in that we have never been strongly driven to add to it, we have just accrued corkscrews […]

    Salade Niçoise Our youngest son is back from his final term at university and has been trying to kill off his dissertation like the most lackadaisical of executioners. He is vegan, which has necessitated a few culinary tweaks, but nothing to keep anyone awake at night. Happily, (for me if not for him) we've been […]

    Salmon Fillets with Masala Sauce, Basmati Rice and Green Beans The inspiration for my masala sauce comes from Madhur Jaffrey's excellent 'Curry Easy' that was published in 2010 and proved a culinary game changer for our household. It is very clearly and well written and contains terrific photographs to boot.   Ingredients: (Serves 3 to […]
