Saturday Kitchen with James Blunt!

The Saturday Kitchen ‘Countdown to Christmas’ kicked off in style last Saturday! Olly picked the drinks for hilarious guest James Blunt to pair with delicious dishes prepared by chefs Tony Singh, Jane Baxter and of course, Matt.

Here are Olly’s pairings in case you missed them and watch the episode on catch up on iPlayer here.

With Tony’s Christmas pudding samosas with whisky custard, Olly paired Finest Pedro Ximenez, Tesco (£7.25).

With Jane’s Baked cabbage rolls with braised red cabbage, Olly served a glass of Expressions Garnacha 2022, M&S (£8).

For James’ food Heaven Buttermilk chicken wings, corn salsa and sweet potato hasselbacks, Olly recommended a glass of Lost & Grounded Helles Lager Beer, Waitrose (£2.80).

If James had got his food Hell of Aubergine and tahini purée with chickpeas and lentils, Olly would have served La Gioiosa et Amorosa Rosea MV  Brut, Waitrose (On offer at £7.99).

Olly’s back in the Saturday Kitchen Christmas studio this coming weekend. Join the team at 10am, BBC One, Saturday 9th December.
