Tom Kerridge’s classic pub dishes

As we head into September and the Autumn months, Olly pairs the drinks for Tom Kerridge’s classic pub dish recipes to make at home in this week’s WEEKEND magazine.

Brilliant with Burgers

Olly’s wine pairing: Shandy Shack Rhubarb Lager (330ml, 2.5%) £1.75, Sainsbury’s

Low in booze but with a compellingly fruity rhubarb streak, this is superb with Tom’s Fried Chicken Burgers.

Adorably Autumnal

Olly’s wine pairing: Hunts Sussex Cider Crowman (6%, 500ml) £3.25,

Organic excellence with zero chemical input, this superb cider’s early autumn flavours would go brilliantly with gammon.

Prawn Perfection

Olly’s wine pairing: Crocodile Diamanté Rosé 2022 (12%) £10, Morrisons

With its orange-peel freshness and cool bottle, this rosé is ideal for keeping that summer feeling going – especially when sipped with Prawn Cakes.

Fabulously Fruity

Olly’s wine pairing: Cantina Del Garda Bardolino 2022 (12%) £7.99 in a Mix Six, Majestic

This light red drinks like a high-voltage rosé – serve cool to enhance its fruitiness and structure for the Mediterranean Vegetable Bake.
