Pairings | Middle-eastern food
With middle-eastern food still very much on-trend Dubai-based blogger Sally Prosser of mycustardpie.com tells us which drinks she thinks makes the best pairings
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.
Two of my favourite cookbooks over the last couple of years have been Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich of Honey & Co's Food from the Middle East and The Baking Book so I've been hugely looking forward to their new book Honey & Co: At Home. Their recipes, which you can also find in the FT, are not just drop-dead delicious but reassuringly (and unusually for chefs!) actually work.
