The week in pictures

In food pairings, Champagne Bollinger is partnering with some of the UK’s top chefs this year on a series of recipes celebrating a single ingredient and designed to pair with its recently released La Grande Année 2008.

This week, Kochhar at Kanishka in Mayfair stepped up to the hot plate and served up a dish of Classic Assamese roast duck Purahah, served with potato salad and creamy rice.

Spices are notoriously tricky to pair with wine, but Kochhar’s dish, which is loaded with turmeric, ginger and red chilli, fits the bill and “brings a new depth to our taste buds,” according to the chef.

“As this dish is very fresh and vibrant with complex spice undertones, its pairs perfectly with Bollinger Le Grand Annee 2008’s spicy, fruity and floral notes,” he said.
