Burns Night Food and Rioja wine matching menu

 

Burns Night Rioja wine and food matching menu 

If you're planning your Burns Night celebrations, make sure you don't forget about the wine matches too. To give you some delicious options, we have prepared a full guide with what Rioja wine styles will companiment the traditional dishes. 

 

-Starter- 

To kick off the evenig, start with a traditional #Cullen Skink', a thick Scottish soup using un-dyed smoked haddock, potatoes and onions. We recommend try this delicious and creamy recipe from The Great British Chefs which is packed with flavour and the perfect partner to a refreshing glass of white Rioja. 

 

-Main-

For your main course, keep it traditional and serve the Scottish classic, haggis. This year, serve yours with pickled neeps and tatties with this delicious BBC Food recipe from Tom Kitchin. The rich and savoury flavours of this dish make it the perfect pairings to a spicy Rioja Crianza.

Veggie alternative: if you're looking for a vegetarian option, try this Guardian Food recipe from expert Felicity Spector. 

 

-Dessert-

There's only one way to end Burns Night and that's with a Cranachan. Give this BBC Good Food recipe a go - with oats, cream, raspeberry and honey, it's a great match to light and floral white Rioja wine.
