Our next wine dinner will be held on Tuesday 6th May.
We have chosen our favourite wines from the famous Ascheri vineyard in Italy and have created the dishes and the menu to bring out their qualities.
We have included some traditional, rare variety ingredients, Gold Rush and Defender courgettes, grown by us, wall pepper, elderflower and yarrow, gathered locally to celebrate Kenneth's recent invitation to join the Slow Food Chefs' Alliance.
When we tasted these excellent wines and discussed the menu, we found a few fundamental points of style and flavour that we were keen to bring out during the dinner. Fresh and vivacious fruit characteristics from the whites made us think straight away of pairing dishes lifted with varied textures and flavours of fruits, both sweet and bitter.
The two differing styles of Barolo made us, in a nod towards Italian dining tradition, decide on a pasta course with the intense depth of flavour of braised octopus and bone marrow, followed by a fine rare breed beef sirloin from the Huntsham Court Farm with the second and deeper Barolo –the finest beef we are yet to find.
