Drinks for Sam Way’s Gourmet Suppers

In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for Tik Tok sensation, Sam Way’s simple gourmet suppers.

Herby Breadcrumb Salmon Traybake

Olly’s wine pairing: Flint Vineyard Bacchus 2022 (11%) £18.99, flintvineyard.com

With a whirl of lime, elderflower and lychee, this is one of the best British whites. It’s a zingy treat with Sam’s Salmon Traybake recipe.

Herby Potato & Cavolo Nero Gratin

Olly’s wine pairing: Vista Castelli Trebbiano d’Abruzzo 2022 (11.5%) £4.75, Tesco

A great-value white with citrus flair, this is ideal with the Herby Potato & Cavolo Nero Gratin. It’s as vibrant as a bell, so give it a ring!

Pork Chops with Chimichurri

Olly’s wine pairing: Saumur-Champigny Tradition Clos des Cordeliers, Domaine Ratron 2019 (13%) £12.95, thewinesociety.com

This red is on the lighter side, so fabulous with the Pork Chops. As fruity as a blueberry, it’s great served lightly chilled.

Raspberry Soufflé

Olly’s wine pairing: Rosé Prosecco (11%) £6.99, Lidl

Though it says ‘Extra Dry’ on the label, this actually indicates more fruitiness than ‘Brut’. That makes this fun fizz – which is almost like a bubbly fruit sorbet – a great match for the Raspberry Soufflé.
