Spicy Pairings!

Spice and easy! In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for mouthwatering recipes from Nadiya Hussain’s new book which uses a combination of her favourite eight spices.

Whole Baked Cauliflower

Olly’s wine pairing: Kylie Minogue 0% Sparkling Rosé (0%) £6, Tesco

The summer berry thrill of this zero-booze bubbly is so refreshing with the Whole Baked Cauliflower and has the right fruitiness for the honey in the sauce too.

Sag Aloo Chicken Jalfrezi

Olly’s wine pairing: Yalumba Organic Viognier 2022 (13%) £10.99 (reduced to £7.99 until 26 September), Waitrose

Viognier is great with the Saag Aloo Chicken Jalfrezi thanks to its mellow fruitiness, and this is a peach of an offer.

Tangy Tomato Prawns

Olly’s wine pairing: Extra Special Gavi 2022 (12.5%) £9.25, Asda

The Tangy Tomato Prawns are a heavenly match for the scented freshness of this breezy, upbeat Italian white that’s crafted to delight your palate with every sip.

Marvellous with meat

Olly’s wine pairing: Irresistible Pais 2022 (13.5%) £8.50, Co-op

Sourced from vines that are more than a century old, this vibrant Chilean red is on the lighter side with a satisfying smoky twist to match with beef or lamb curries. Decant for maximum impact.
