Basic Juice is hosting round 4 of Combinations. This is a simple event taking a specified recipe, replicating it, and finding a matching wine. Beau has twisted it slightly by offering a list of herbs, asks that three are used in a recipe. and then find a wine to accompany. This ‘twisted’ Combinations offers about as wide a field as you could hope for in terms of both the food and the accompanying wine. Should you go a Sauvignon Blanc route to pick out the herbs? Or maybe you fancy a Loire red with a herb crusted leg of lamb? Maybe cream is involved, in which case an unoaked Chardonnay or a Pinot Blanc might fit the bill. The possibilities are many. Entries should be completed by the 30th July.
