Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for prawn curry

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for prawn curry can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cold drink, particularly a glass of saffron lassi. This, sweet, cold drink balances the spicy prawn curry.

  • A next-level pairing for Chardonnay

    Experts recommend pairing a butter chicken with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • Viognier with your shellfish curry

    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Viognier, with its hits of peach-and-apricot, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $3,082,610 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, bluefin tuna?

  • 9,921 pounds of mango sticky rice

    9,921 pounds is the record for the biggest mango sticky rice. We hope people were hungry!
