You may have wondered why it has been so quiet on The Perfect Cellar blog over the last few weeks!
Well we've all been extremely busy with tastings, so I thought I would give you a brief run down of what we've been doing and of course drinking.
Last week was Clerkenwell Design Week, a celebration of the rich and diverse creative
business and architects based in the area. Our partner and location of our wine cellar, The Clerkenwell Collection was a showroom for the week and delivered many talks and events. You can read their summary here
The Perfect Cellar took up a unique collaboration with Mark Hix and the Hix Oyster and Chop House
to create a pairing menu of food and wine. Four unique tasting dishes, beautifully matched with three fabulous wines.
We ran these mini tastings throughout Clerkenwell Design Week, four times a day. You can read an attendees view on the We Eat We Tweet We Blog
site. Personally, my favourite pair was the asparagus and Petit Chablis
, since I love the seasonality of it, especially because with
the exceptionally warm spring we've had this year means that there is plenty of asparagus in shops to recreate the match at home.
he We Eat guys particularly liked the Venezuelan Chocolate Truffles and 15 year old Mas Amiel
, which is the perfect after dinner treat for those who might have eaten a bit too much in the previous courses!
We're cooking up a few more similar pairing events over the coming months as we speak so keep your eyes peeled for more details soon.
