Comfort on a Plate
In last WEEKEND’s magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for Si King and Dave Myers’s (aka The Hairy Bikers) new mouthwateringly hearty recipes.
Spanish Style Roasted Vegetables and Halloumi
Olly’s wine pairing: Organic Spanish Monastrell Rosado 2022 (12.5%) £7, M&S
On the zingier side, this attractive Spanish rosé has a silky texture and a cranberry kick. It’s lush with the Hairy Bikers’ Spanish-style Roasted Vegetables recipe.
Sausage and Cabbage Casserole
Olly’s wine pairing: Old Vine Garnacha 2022 (14%) £6.75, Co-op
Glossy, fruity and tremendous value for money, this Spanish red is a real crowd pleaser – and it’s a wonderful pairing with the Sausage And Cabbage Casserole.
Bacon Chops with Parsley Sauce
Olly’s wine pairing: Galipette Cidre Brut (4.5%, 500ml) £2.50, Waitrose
This French gem is the ideal blend of richness and refreshment. A pocket rocket of appley excellence, it goes beautifully with the Bacon Chops.
Seafood Pasta Bake
Olly’s wine pairing: Taste The Difference Côtes du Rhône White 2021 (13%) £9, Sainsbury’s
Aromatically complex and with a little gingery bite, this mellow French blend will go down a storm with the Seafood Pasta Bake.
