Mr Christian’s Ultimate Boxing Day Sandwich Recipe

While the Christmas day meal is undoubtedly the peak of festive culinary activities, we have a sneaking suspicion that the painstaking effort is all in aid of what happens the day after: that’s right, the Boxing Day Sandwich.

2018 BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR

2018 BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR

Aquaplaning our way up the A6 from Geneva, the road illuminated by sheet lightning, was the rather unnerving manner in which we arrived late Sunday evening into Beaune. A fitting welcome from a wine region whose relationship with mother nature is all encompassing.

My Top 5 Wines

My Top 5 Wines

“If I had a pound for every time I have been asked that question…” This old saying, as it related to every wine merchant, is always directed at the question: “What is the best wine you have tasted?” Normally, if I want to impress, I would arrogantly answer, “Oh, that’s easy: it’s the ’82 Mouton … Continued
