A perfect autumnal dinner party recipe from James Ramsden's lovely book Do Ahead Dinners.
A grotty car park under a railway intersection in south London might not strike you as the ideal place for a wine event but with rock music blaring and street food on the side Wine Car Boot was the coolest tasting in town yesterday.
One of the welcome reminders of this long hot summer (in the Languedoc at least) is just how well dry wines go with fresh fruit. I’ve been happily drinking whites, ross and even reds with fruit such as peaches, apricots, melons and figs. Sweet wines, of course, go well with all of these but sometimes sweet wines seem too intense, particularly if, like me, you don’t have a very sweet tooth.
