This week’s #FridayCurryClub​ is in partnership with The Côtes du Rhône wine region @cotesdurhone_uk Indian food is more often paired with beer but wine from this region is a superb compliment to Indian food. The grapes from the region are varied but the flavour profiles of both the reds and the whites work well with Indian spices, peppery flavours plus onion and garlic sauces. So here is a classic English curry paired with incredible, versatile, yet everyday French wines. This Friday we are going to be cooking a chicken tikka masala and enjoying a glass of Gabriel Meffre which is available from @waitrose . If you can’t get this any Côtes du Rhône wine will work. We will talk about what Côtes du Rhône means, answer the red or white question and have the amazing Julie Coutton (PR manager for the region) online to answer your wine questions. Please ask your wine questions in the comments. Join me at 18.15 BTS on my YouTube channel.
