Dos & don'ts of Valentine's Day (it's simple)

Eating out on St Valentine's Day is cheesy (we all know that), so many of us choose to discuss this sensibly with our partners and agree to go out on another night close to the 14th.

Sicilian wine that sings: Donnafugata (+free recipe ebook)

Back in the Autumn I was invited to a lovely lunch at the Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell to meet the elegant José Rallo of Donnafugata wines in Siciliy. We tasted six wines from the portfolio, pairing each with a different course.

These are wines of character and there is no one better to present them than José. If you watch the video below you can see that we were serenaded as we tasted.
