Father’s Day Feasts

In this weeks’ WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for delicious dishes to treat dad on Father’s Day.

Salmon Fillets with Tomatoes, Beans and Green Sauce

Olly’s beer pairing: Brooklyn Brewery Pilsner (4.6%, 660ml) £2.20, Tesco

A real modern classic, this lager has an impressive impact and a thirst-quenching crunch. Scrumptious when paired with salmon, it’s also a great beer to have on standby in the fridge for impromptu visitors.

Chicken Fajitas with Red Peppers

Olly’s wine pairing: Carne Rojo Malbec 2021 (13.5%) £4.95, Asda

What a bargain! Juicy, easy drinking and not too heavy, there’s enough fruitiness here to make a wonderful pairing with spicy fajitas – and on value alone it belongs in your basket.

Roast Beef with Hasselback Potatoes and Green Beans

Olly’s wine pairing: Marcelo Pelleriti Malbec 2021 (14%) from £9.99 Majestic

Exclusive to Majestic, this is malbec at its best. With huge, mellow depth and a cocoa texture, it’ll make your beef sizzle.

Spicy Cheese and Bacon Burgers

Olly’s wine pairing: The Best Ribera Del Duero 2019 (14.5%) £9, Morrisons

Burgers pair brilliantly with tempranillo, the grape in this richly textured Spanish red. If you’re a fan of Rioja, you’ll adore this stunner from nearby Ribera del Duero.

Classic Full English Breakfast

Olly’s wine pairing: English Sparkling Classic Cuvee 2017 (12%) £24.99, adnams.co.uk

Full of depth and flavour, this great value homegrown fizz will go down a storm on Father’s Day on Sunday!
