You can’t cook with wine and not have a glass yourself! This red wine veal with rigatoni is the perfect dish to make on a lazy Sunday afternoon while sipping on a glass of red (or white), surrounded by your guests.
If you’re looking to have a restaurant-worthy steak dinner right at home, look no further than our red wine marinated steak with wine jus.
We’re reinventing the wine cocktail in a big way (and right in time for the warmer weather!) by turning them into gourmet slushies! Berries are coming into season and they pair perfectly with vanilla and a glass of robust red. Introducing our amazing Merlot slushies!
Now, we know that you aren’t technically supposed to mix fish and red wine, but the wine rules are
changing. Once you’ve tried a piece roast salmon smothered in our red-wine butter, there’s no going back.
There is nothing better than a homely pie and a glass of red when the weather is cold. These red wine braised beef pies are on our menu for Sunday lunch!
They knew how to winter back in the good old days and our online manager, Roxy, developed this medieval mulled wine and it has been enjoyed on many a wintry weekend evening in her home. So grab your favourite bottle of red, some vitamin C-packed citrus and your spices, and you’re good to go.
That satisfying pop when you bite into an ice-cold grape or that gentle sip of red you take after a long working week, there’s something pretty special about these little round fruit that beautifully dots our country’s vineyards. But besides it’s aesthetics and ability to be turned into a beloved alcoholic beverage, we want to explore the wonderful ways in which we can cook with it. So, get your grapes and we’ll meet in the kitchen!
We turned to Cape Sommelier, Ewan Mackenzie to find out what you need to know about the changing wine game.
There is no better dish to serve up to guests than a traditional French coq au vin. Cooking with wine guarantees you’ll have plenty of fun in the kitchen with this one! (We recommend a middle-of-the-road wine – don’t waste your best vintage, but don’t use anything so cheap you wouldn’t drink it on its own.)
