Competitions and offers
Win a fantastic Spanish food and wine hamper from Mercado 44
We all need to escape in January, if not in person then at least through food and drink and I can think of no better people to make that happen than Owen and Tom Morgan of Bar 44 who have the most brilliant restaurants and tapas bars in Bristol and Cardiff.
They also have an online shop Mercado 44 from which they’ve picked this fabulous selection of food and wine
Owen writes: “The hamper celebrates some of Spain’s very finest ingredients and artisan producers, whether in the form of indulgent ready to eat nibbles, or finish-at-home dishes to enjoy with the wines we’ve selected.
The new 44 book ‘Bar 44 tapas y copas' is out now and has already received critical acclaim for its production, recipes, photography and stories and was picked as one of Daily Mail restaurant critic Tom Parker-Bowles top books of 2021.
The book usefully pairs all 100 of its recipes with a drink, and also has chapters on sherry, Spanish wine, gin, Spanish cider, cocktails, and vermut (vermouth).
The lucky winner will be able to create a wonderful feast of food and drink at home focused around recipes and ideas from the book
The hamper will include
