The week in pictures

Kicking off the week in style, db’s editor, Lucy Shaw, headed to Flor in Borough Market to lunch with chef turned winemaker Maria Sinskey of Robert Sinskey Vineyards in California’s Napa Valley. Joined by Freya Miller of Pol Roger Portfolio, during lunch the trio enjoyed a bottle of Sinskey’s sink contact Pinot Gris, which paired seamlessly with a variety of dishes, including purple sprouting broccoli tempura with bergamot.

“When people hear the word ‘Napa’ they think of big bold reds but we’re the opposite. We always have food in mind when we create our wines and are very hands off in the winery. We want to create lower alcohol, high acid aromatic wines you want to drink more than a glass of,” Sinskey said.

Among our favourite dishes at Flor is the anchovy toast blanketed in lardo – a salty, punchy taste sensation!
