It’s not exactly roast dinner weather, but if you’ve cooked a chicken regardless, have it alongside some summery side salads (homemade coleslaw recipe below) and a cool glass of Morrisons Macon Villages 2009. Winner of Best White Wine Under £7 at the Good Housekeeping Food Awards 2011, this wine is excellent value and delicious.
Refreshing on the palate with flavours of pear, grapefruit, and a delicate creamy finish, for just £6.19, this is definitely one to stock up on and, if you’re in the ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) club, it just might convert you!
