Getting The Most Out Of Your Wine

It goes without saying that when we’re out for dinner most of us spend a considerable amount of time pouring over the wine list.

Some of us have become so wine obsessed that it even takes precedence over the food menu when we’re at a restaurant (that’ll be me then…).

But even if you know your claret from your Beaujolais and your wine knowledge is the envy of all your friends, you still may not be getting the most out of your bottle, and surprisingly it could all be down to what you are drinking alongside your wine.

How many times have you carefully picked out water when out for dinner? None? Well you wouldn’t be alone. But the practice of ‘water and wine harmonisation’ is growing around the world, with even one of the world’s top sommeliers Andreas Larsson now advising wine lovers on the best water and wine matches to bring out the flavour of your food.

And just as picking the perfect wine can make or break a dish, Andreas believes sipping the right water can enhance even further the food we are eating.

Andreas, who was crowned ‘Best Sommelier of the World’ in 2007, will be conducting water and wine harmonisation sessions on behalf of S. Pellegrino at the Taste of London Festival, which takes place in Regents Park from 17th to the 20th of June.

Now in its seventh year, Taste of London brings together the capital’s finest chefs and restaurants with an extraordinary range of quality food and drink from Britain and around the world.

In the following video (click the link to run directly in the browser) Andreas runs through some of his top tips for making sure you’re getting the most out of your wine by selecting the perfect water accompaniment.

Tom’s Terrace At Somerset House

Two new restaurants will transform eating out at one of London’s finest venues this summer.

The well-known River Terrace Café at Somerset House has been completely re-designed to become Tom’s Terrace when it opens on 29 April. Underneath a futuristic canopy diners will enjoy protection from the London summer whilst enjoying stunning views of the river Thames.

With an informal, relaxed, al fresco-style menu created by Michelin starred chef Tom Aikens, Tom’s Terrace will be a refreshing addition to open-air restaurants in the West End. The menu will include Tom’s Kitchen Tasting Board (which includes Coronation Crab Salad, Mini Burgers and Tartine of Red Onion and Aubergine Compote), Grilled Paillard of Chicken Salad, Hot Smoked Loch Duart Salmon and a delectable range of desserts such as Eton Mess and Mango Rice Pudding.

The existing Admiralty Restaurant will be transformed into “Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House”. Tom’s Kitchen restaurant in Chelsea has been a remarkable success and the concept, including the menu, will be unchanged in the larger, grander surroundings of Somerset House serving signature dishes including Daylesford 7 hour Confit Lamb and Spicy Crème Brulee. The Deli will sell a selection of lighter fare including Lentil and Goat Cheese Tart, Parma Ham and Artichoke Pissaladiere and Roast Chicken, Grape, Endive and Walnut Salad.

“We’ve been looking to re-fresh our restaurants at Somerset House for some time,” said Jerome Ibanez General Manager “and with Tom we have found a partner who can deliver this re-fresh with style. Somerset House is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful locations in the capital – a must visit restaurant for all diners in the West End. We look forward to offering diners the opportunity to savour both the views of London and the exciting menus on offer – a great addition to complement the summer season of cultural events at Somerset House.”

“Everyone who goes to Tom’s Kitchen in Chelsea raves about the food, the ambience and the service. We are going to take all that and add a dash of architectural splendour to the mix. Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House is set to become a big player, setting the standard for the London restaurant scene.”

Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House will open this summer, replacing the Admiralty Restaurant. The menu at Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House will be the same as in Chelsea. The existing Tom’s Kitchen and Tom Aikens Restaurant will remain independent. Tom’s Terrace will be open daily from 9am – midnight.
