Drinks for Speedy Brunches

In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for the speediest and tastiest brunch recipes using just your microwave!

Baked Camembert

Olly’s wine pairing: Paul Mas Réserve Languedoc Blanc 2022 (13%) £9.99, Waitrose

Bright, richly layered and with a hint of apricot, this memorable white is a steal at this offer price.

The Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Olly’s wine pairing: Villiera Cap Classique Brut NV (11.5%) £14.99 as part of a Mix Six, Majestic

A South African fizz to rival the world’s best bubbly but at half the price, this is silky and with the right richness for scrambled eggs.

Pitta Bread Pizzas

Olly’s beer pairing: Erdinger Weissbier (5.3%, 50cl) £2.20, Tesco

I love the refreshing scent of this classy wheat beer. With its gentle aromatic flair, it’s just the ticket to pair with pizzas with a variety of toppings – serve cold in a wine glass to maximise the aromas.

Warm Berry Compote

Olly’s wine pairing: Muscat de Saint-Jean de Minervois Tailhades (15%, 37.5cl) £9.20, tanners-wines.co.uk

Sweet, unctuous and suave, this is glorious served chilled with warm berry compote.
