The Yorkshire Pudding. A national icon and an absolute must on Sunday roasts up and down the country. Today, on 2nd February, we celebrate British Yorkshire Pudding Day with 3 perfect wine pairings.
Flour. Egg. Milk.
How can something made with just 3 ingredients taste so wicked?!
The Yorkshire pudding is most traditionally an important part of the English Sunday roast, you want to choose a wine that complements every aspect. The Chapoutier Côtes du Rhône Villages is a fresh, fruity Grenache-based wine which goes down a treat with all kinds of meat and has a generous texture which just loves the Yorkshire pudding crispiness. Available in Tesco for only £9.
Cook the batter with sausages and it becomes Toad in the Hole! Match those juicy pork sausages with an equally warm and juicy red such as the Co-op Irresistible Australian Shiraz. Available in Co-op for only £7.
If you want to stick with white, pick one with ample texture and just a touch of refreshing acidity: Men in White Coats Viognier. Only £9.99 at Majestic.
