If you’re living in the U.K. spring should officially have sprung… But it seems the weather is as changeable as ever. A hint of sunshine and warmth is followed by steady rain, and even snow! However, the vagaries of British weather, shouldn’t stop you enjoying your Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which is always consistently good! We believe that your favourite varietal transcends all seasons, and tastes as good sipped by the fireside, as it does slurped in the sunshine!
With that in mind, here are a few suggestions for spring suppers and light lunches that will pair perfectly with your favourite Sauvignon Blanc, no matter what the weather gods throw at you.
For rainy days when only comfort food will do – A warming bowl of soup makes the perfect lunchtime treat. Turn it into an evening meal with some crusty bread and an antipasto platter. Classic seafood chowder is a great choice, but if you’re looking for more soupy inspiration, check out this blog post from the archives, for two recipes that both pair perfectly with Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
For spring suppers when the sun comes out to play – As new season produce hits the shelves look out for tender, sweet British asparagus. This Asparagus and Cheese Tart recipe, served with a simple salad and a bottle of Fairbourne Sauvignon Blanc, shouts springtime! And if things really start heating up, roll out the barbecue, but think beyond the humble sausage and burger. Choose chicken, fish or seafood to pair with Fairbourne premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
For days when it’s complicated – If you’re planning an event ahead of time and have no idea what the weather will be like then cover your bases by choosing a simple pasta dish. Comforting enough if there’s a chill in the air, but equally good eaten al fresco! For something different try Spaghetti with Anchovy Carbonara. Find a recipe HERE.
