In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for slow cooker recipe ideas…..
Whole Chicken cooked in Cider
Olly’s cider pairing: No. 1 English Vintage Perry (8%, 500ml) £2.50, Waitrose
Made from Herefordshire pears, this underrated sparkling English gem is lovely with chicken and superb to refresh alongside the orchard theme of this recipe.
Red Thai Prawn Noodles
Olly’s wine pairing: Riesling Kalkmergel Weingut Jülg 2019 (13%) £14.95,
Offering electrifying citrus zing with a smoky thread and thrumming zestiness, this sculptured riesling is a top-notch quencher for this fragrant curry.
Olly’s wine pairing: Château Millegrand Aurore Minervois 2018 (14%) £10.50, Co-op
Shakshuka can take a big red, and the spicy splendour of this huge wine is more than up to the task.
