More and more people have been drinking orange or amber wine but what’s the best kind of food to pair with it?
If you’re wondering what wine to pair with hummus or houmous you need to take account of the fact that it’s rarely served on its own.

Those of you who have followed the site for a while will know I’m a HUGE fan of the ingredient company Belazu which specialises in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food (in fact I have a whole load of their products in my own kitchen).
This is one of Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's contributions to Cook for Syria a brilliant fund-raising book of middle-eastern inspired recipes from top food writers which was conceived and curated last year by instagrammer Clerkenwell Boy*.
This, I think, was the standout pairing from our Honey & Co wine club on Sunday and a great illustration of the difference a dish can make to the way a wine tastes.
One of the areas of food and drink pairing I’m always trying to crack is soft drinks - so it’s good to find an inspired match that really hits the spot - not too sweet as most soft drinks are for me.
