Drinks for Tess!

In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for Tess Daly’s wholesome new book packed with mouthwateringly healthy recipes…

Tess' tremendous turkey burgers

Olly’s wine pairing: Definition Zinfandel 2020 (14.5%) £10.99 or £8.99 in a Mix Six deal, Majestic

A blueberry in its pomp! This sun-soaked Californian red is sleek and bold, deeply fruity and utterly divine with Tess’s Tremendous Turkey Burgers.

Bouncing banana pancakes

Olly’s wine pairing: Downsview Estate Heron’s Ghyll (11.5%) £29, downsviewvineyard.co.uk

This quality crafted Sussex fizz is heaped with sherbet vibrancy to pair with Bouncing Banana Pancakes. Local bubbly brilliance that will lift your day.

Sizzling sweet and sour stir-fry 

Olly’s wine pairing: Tesco Finest Prosecco Rosé DOC 2021 (11.5%) £8.50

Fizz always pairs well with informal dishes, and rosé prosecco is fruity enough to handle the sumptuous spice in the Sizzling Sweet And Sour Stir-Fry.

Terrific with tuna

Olly’s wine pairing: Prima Luna Frascati DOC 2021 (12.5%) £5.75, Tesco

This is a light citrus dream of a wine, which is terrific value for a kitchen table white and easy drinking alongside the tasty Marinated Tuna With Mango And Pineapple Salsa.

Scrumptious peach and almond crumble

Olly’s wine pairing: Cipriani Virgin Bellini (180ml, 0%) £12 for 4 bottles, sacla.co.uk

Hands down the best non-alcoholic Bellini I’ve ever tasted and a sparkling delight to serve from the fridge alongside the Scrumptious Peach And Almond Crumble.
