Food and Wine

Give wine some curry

It’s easy to become complacent about matching wine and food, and I’m as guilty as anyone for making safe generalisations.

Manchego and wine

A glass of wine at the end of a busy day is one of life’s great pleasures. Increasingly I find myself reaching for the Spanish cheese manchego as an accompaniment.

Asparagus and…

I recall being told many years ago that asparagus, along with globe artichokes, eggs, chocolate and brussels sprouts cannot be matched with wine.


If Italian cuisine is mostly about good things served on a plate with minimum interpretation, you’re in safe hands at Rosetta.


If you wandered along Sydney’s Ash Street towards Angel Place, knowing nothing of the food on offer here, somehow I doubt Bacco would beckon.
