Matching Wine and Food - exciting discovery

There are the famous matches like bone dry Chablis with oysters, the surprises, like rich sweet Sauternes with Roquefort cheese and then there are the utterly unexpected...

The combination of Carr's, a particularly tasty sweet chilli sauce and this Beaujolais worked brilliantly. After a bite of chilli topped cracker the wine comes alive. Remarkable. Be warned, you'll demolish the lot in no time at all.

Por Kwan Sweet Chilli Sauce, £2.99 in Sainsbury's (seriously good on just about anything)
Beaujolais, Cuvee des Vignerons, £5 in Waitrose (on offer)
Carr's Large 'Table Water', widely available
