It’s not the most common of food wine pairing dilemmas, but for anyone who has ever been faced with the question “what do I drink with my potato salad?”, Susy Atkins, writing in The Telegraph, has the answer.
He recommendations are based on an number of recipes which also appeared in the paper.
She said: “Why bother to match drinks to recipes based on the humble spud? Well, for a start, I adore the flavour and texture of good potatoes (especially the ones I grow myself). And then there are all the inspiring ingredient combinations in Diana Henry’s recipes.”
Of this French red she said: “Shouts out “summer” with its fresh, almost pippy raspberry and black-cherry fruit, soft but refreshing and succulent. One for potatoes, chorizo and red peppers.”
