Seafood pizza and medium-dry cider

The cider revival continues to gather momentum - and this time it’s with food. Of course cider has always been popular in summer but this year there seem to be many more well-made 'craft' ciders around - not just the latest raft of fruit flavoured fizzy drinks.

I came across this pairing at a new cider house called The Stable in my home town of Bristol. They also serve really good crisp-based pizzas including one topped with prawns, smoked salmon and smoked mackerel* (The Avonmouth Angler) which gave the pizza a lovely smoky flavour.

A crisp, clean, appley cider (Wilkins Farmhouse cider) was the perfect refreshing contrast.

We so often think of beer as the ideal pairing for pizza but cider can be just as good a match.

* (Apologies for the fuzzy picture. Put it down to the cider . . . )
