Alex & Andy from Eating Leeds are hosting this month's Combinations, an event devised by Andrew from Spittoon - the objective is to cook a recipe that's supplied and match it to a beverage of your choice.
This month's recipe was Flatbreads with Spiced Chicken, Pistachios and Roasted Peppers - it's flavours reminded me of those found in Turkish pizzas so I immediately focused on a fruity white. As this dish seems really suited to serve as finger food, a sparkling wine would be appropriate - so with that in mind I decided to match this with a Brown Brothers Moscato.
Brown Brothers Moscato is made of predominately Muscat of Alexandria grapes. With it's tropical fruit flavours, floral aromas and light fizz, it works well with the spices - though I would have to add that this dish wasn't quite as spicy as I had thought it would be.
Now if the thought of drinking Moscato seems a bit girlie, then Paalo has helpfully suggested an alternative, once again, focusing on this dish as finger food, he recommends a Coopers Sparkling Ale - it's clean, crisp and cleansing and if you listen to the marketers, it's the beer wine drinkers drink!
