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
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.
