26th March 2021
Even though we’re not going out to fancy dinner parties at the moment, we can still create a special night-in every once in a while and creating something like this is a great starting dish to pair with some Sparkling Wine to start the evening off.
During Ancient Roman times, the elite held their dinner parties to show off their status, they would provide a splendid display of fine foods & wine and even read poetry and watch Gladiators fight. But when it came to some Emperors parties they would show their exceptional powers by enjoying the finest of everything, including food, wine, women and drugs.

Avocado & Prawns
Avocado and Prawns Ingredients
- Avocados (chop in half and remove the stone)
- Tomatoes (chop into small pieces)
- Tomato Ketchup & Mayo (mix together to create the prawn cocktail sauce)
Pairing Notes – “A clean wave of orchard fruits is washed over the delicate pairing, the dish is very light and easy to eat. The Sparkling Wine gives the very delicate dish a little kick with zesty orchard fruits, this doesn’t last long and isn’t overwhelming, it enhances the prawn flavours over the prawn cocktail sauce. A lime sherbert explosion in the palate is followed by a herbal savoury prawn mid-length.”
