The recipes include Roasted Mackerel paired with a White Graves; Hot Pears with Roquefort and Walnuts matched with a sweet Première Côtes de Bordeaux wine, and a Cheese and Ham Pie accompanied by a Bordeaux Supérieur. These will appear in the ‘2013 Everyday Bordeaux’ booklet, 1 million of which should be in todays national newspapers.
