Olly’s was in the Saturday Kitchen last weekend with Matt on the hob preparing dishes with chef Nisha Katona and the legend that is Chef Ken Hom, all plating up for guest Fearne Cotton.
Here are the drinks Olly paired for Fearne’s dishes – all vegan friendly…
With Nisha’s Thali of savoy cabbage, mango dahl and prawn curry with black cardamon rice, Olly recommends enjoying with a glass of Solo Pale Spanish Rosé 2021 from the Co-op (£7.25).
With Ken’s Mu Shu pork with hoisin sauce & pancakes (vegan version available HERE too), Olly transported the team to Greece with Found Moschofilero & Roditis 2020 from M&S (£8.50).
With Fearne’s Food Heaven of Thai vegan burger with peanut dressing, Olly went for beer with Asda’s Erdinger Weissbier Wheat Beer (£1.90).
It was also World Whisky Day and Olly prepared some delicious whisky based cocktails with whiskies from around the world…
