I’m hoping this will build up into a nice little collection of ‘safe’ wine and recipe combinations you can consult whenever you have friends coming for dinner. Whenever I have tried a wine and food match that I think went particularly well, I let you know about it here.

If you want to jump straight to recipes I have tried from your favourite celebrity chef, just use the drop-down menu above. I can only eat so fast and I don’t cook every day so I am building up the blog gradually, but over time you can expect to find here recipes from Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Nigel Slater, Rick Stein, Delia Smith and others – and of course the wines that matched.

Recipes from other sources can be found under ‘other’, or of course you can navigate by main food ingredient on the left.
