JOHN TORODE is now one of this country’s most popular celebrity chefs. Only last week he launched his new cookery programme Australia.
But he also comes from a part of Australia which is the oldest wine-making region on that vast continent, the Hunter Valley.
So it should come as no surprise that he has been happy to pair up with one of that region’s most successful wineries, McGuigan Wines, to create some tastebud-tantalising food and wine matches.
McGuigan has consistently won many awards. Winemaker Neil McGuigan made history by being the first person to be named world’s best winemaker in three out of four years.
You will know I enjoy my scientific wine and food experiments, so it was too tempting not to speak to Mr Torode about food and, specifically, wine.
