I did it! And I loved every single minute of my first Saturday Kitchen Live experience. OK so I wasn’t mad about the coral lipstick and the camera definitely adds at least 10lbs but I got to eat unbelievably good food and drink wine at 10am on a Saturday morning. With Jason Donovan! Makes a change from watching it whilst tackling the ironing pile in my dressing gown. I’ve included a couple of the wines I picked for the show in this week’s recommendations. And I’m really thrilled to tell you I’ve been asked back to do some more. I’ll keep you posted.
Current white in the fridge: Albarino Martin Codax
Price: £9.99 - Buy From Majestic
Gorgeous bright white from the northwestern corner of Spain, this is made from the Albarino grape and is absolutely made to go with fish. Think of it as a squeeze of lemon over the top. There’s a bucket of citrus fruit along with a touch of peach and apricot. Featured on last week’s Saturday Kitchen by, well, me.
Current sticky in the fridge: Campbell’s Rutherglen Muscat
Price: £12.99 - Buy From Waitrose
Australia’s most famous sticky, this is a sweet fortified Muscat and has to be tasted to be believed. Made from super-ripe grapes, the wine is then fortified with a little grape spirit to add oomph. Rich, sweet and unctuous, it’s gorgeous sipped with a sweet fruit pudding. Or in its own in the bath, of course.
