  1. Chipotle Cider Pulled Pork with The Wine Key

    What do you get when one Brit moves to America and one American moves to Britain? The perfect food and wine pairings of course!

    The Wine Key is run by British born Charlotte Chipperfield who is on a mission to remove the intimidation and trepidation of learning about wine by getting back to basics and infusing humor into the world of wine.


    After The Market is run by American born Maggie Thorneycroft, a passionate cook and writer who loves to share recipes and techniques that encourage fun and creativity in the kitchen. Just don’t expect to ever hear the word ‘diet’, Maggie believes that health is about about cooking from scratch and enjoying every bite.


    The Wine Key and After the Market have teamed up to bring you sizzling food and wine pairings to keep you cool and refreshed for the last few weeks of summer and will be carrying on to bring you more throughout the year.

    No matter if it is a casual evening on the patio, pool party or BBQ, this pairing will be sure to keep you fueled while soaking up the last days of summer sunshine. So first up in what will be a series of pairings for you to enjoy – Chipotle Cider Pulled Pork and 2007 Domaine Foundis, Naoussea, Greece



  2. Beef Wellington on an idle Wednesday

    It’s STILL freezing outside. Brrrrrrrrrr. All this ‘spring starts on the first of March’ malarky is just that: malarky. First of all, see above (it’s freezing) second of all, the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which MUST be right, says the Vernal Equinox (that’s Spring) is on the 20th of March, so maybe we’ll have better luck in 5 days. I dunno – somehow I doubt it.

    OK, enough of this talking about the weather – what I really want to share with you is my first experience with Beef Wellington, which might be just what you want to  make for Sunday lunch this weekend. I highly recommend it for a small dinner party and I’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s not as hard as people make it out to be, especially if you buy ready-rolled puff pastry!
