Simply scrummy Mary Berry!
In this week’s Weekend mag, Olly pairs the drinks for Mary Berry’s mouthwatering new book of easy family dishes.
Luscious with Lamb
Olly’s wine pairing: Olakala Xinomavro Limniona Red 2022 (13%) from £11.99, nakedwines.com
Red cherries storming a black olive castle, this Greek gem has terrific vibrancy with a savoury core that’s spot on with lamb.
Thai Basil Beef Stir Fry
Olly’s wine pairing: Las Veletas Almaule Pais 2021 (12.5%) £17.99, or £14.99 in a Mix Six, Majestic
This silky Chilean red is pale yet so rich. Bold as a raspberry hooked up to a subwoofer, it’s just the job with the Thai Basil Beef Stir-Fry.
All-in-One Lemon Pepper Cod
Olly’s wine pairing: M&S Found Mtsvane 2022 (13.5%) £10
For an invigorating fish dish like All-In-One Lemon Pepper Cod, grab this electrifying Georgian wine with lemon blossom scent and bright, crunchy pear; it’s a magnificent find!
Pork Tacos with Avocado Salsa
Olly’s wine pairing: Tesco Finest Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG NV (11.5%) £9.50
For under a tenner this whistle-fresh prosecco delivers decent quality. Gently scented and soaring with freshness, it’s a lovely quencher with the Pork Tacos.
Grown-up Chocolate Birthday cake with cream liqueur
Olly’s wine pairing: Brew York Tonkoko Milk Stout (4.3%, 440ml) £3.25, Morrisons
Tasty as a liquid Bounty Bar with hand-toasted coconut and real cocoa nibs, this is blissfully indulgent with a slice of chocolate cake.
