Pairings | Pork pie
As with most foods, the best wine pairing with pork depends how the pork is cooked, and what it’s served with.
If you fancy a cooking project this weekend Gill Meller's raised pork, chicken and parsley pie from his new book Outside would be perfect.
Today, being St George’s Day, what other pairing could I offer you but a classic British dish with a classic British beer?
We Brits don't need much encouragement to eat pies. But which is the better match - wine or beer?
I often get asked what the best pairing for a serious red wine is and I don’t think the people who pose the question would expect the answer 'pork pie'.
OK, pie and beer is not rocket science but sometimes it’s good to be reminded what a very good match they can be. Especially when both the pie and the beer come from the same place.
A couple of years ago I went to a chutney-making demonstration and tasting. No, not at the WI - it was held by the family owned company Tracklements at leading London cheesemonger La Fromagerie which has recently expanded its empire into the neighbouring shop and now has a fancy new tasting room.
