Pan Fried Ocean Trout with Spinach & White Wine Sauce

What I enjoy so much about Tom's recipes is his ability to match the food with our Weekly Drops. I guess that's the beauty of a good chef. And with all this rain, there's a chance you might be able to catch some Ocean Trout from your back door stoop.

Chicken Ballotine

This week, Tom is stepping it up on the prep list, but like all things which take time, the benefits are sublime. A ballotine is a staple French number, and with a Chef Tom Walton tilt to it, it’s even better. The perfect combination with our Weekly Drop wines this week.

Roast mushrooms with tomatoes, pine nuts & polenta

This week sees us matching red wine with summer meals. Not sure how Chef Tom Walton keeps doing this, but he’s absolutely nailed the match of our cabernet from Roustabout with an easy, yet fulfilling, mushroom and polenta. A big enough meal to fill you up, yet light enough to eat on a summers’ evening, and so damn tasty.

Bouillabaise was my first ‘a-ha’ moment when cooking. For me, it was always a dish which seemed incredibly complex and impressive and beyond any possibility of creating unless I was a world class chef. Turns out, it’s not, and you don’t have to be. And especially if Chef Tom Walton is at the helm. Simply follow this incredibly simple and oh so delicious recipe to create a wonderful example of French Provincial cooking. What better way to spend a warm, summers evening with a bottle of Famille Perrin White Rhone blend.

Francesinha – The Ultimate Portuguese Sandwich

This week’s recipe is Portuguese feel good food. Flavourful and fun, the Francesinha is the ultimate powerhouse sandwich. Chef Tom Walton’s take makes it easy enough to fill a table with them and you and your friends can dismantle them while watching the Aussies dismantle the Poms.

Chicken involtini with polenta, prosciutto & sage butter

Cooking and eating is in the heart of every home. When you take a little time to prepare a meal and enjoy it with all your friends and family, it brings us back to the very essence of what makes us human. And when it’s as delicious as what Chef Tom Walton creates, you couldn’t feel more human or happier. Our delicious wines simply add to that feeling even more.

Chicken, Fennel, Asparagus en Papillote

Tom’s recipes are so easy and delicious. I haven’t yet made one which hasn’t had the table all say ‘mmmmm’, just not in unison, but not everything’s in stereo. Todays is a delicious bundle which had me actually really enjoying fennel, a day I never imagined would come. Thanks again, Chef Tom Walton. You simply nail it.

Fish à la Bordelaise

If you love fish, but often don’t know what to do with it except fry, then this is a no-brainer. When you put ‘à la’ in front of anything, you are immediately intimidated, but don’t worry, this is so super easy you won’t believe how good of a cook you are. Thanks Tom, for de-fancifying the fanciful and teaching us how delicious and easy things can be.

Spanish Tapas Picnic

With the onset of a newly acquired passion for picnics, Chef Tom Walton decided to create the ultimate picnic bonanza. It’s definitely more involved than chicken sambos, but so much more worth it. Te Quiero and Chef Tom Walton go together like good weather and, well….. a picnic.

Lomo Saltado (Peruvian Beef Stir Fry)

Fun and delicious does not have to be difficult. If you’re at all deft with a sharp knife and the swish of a pan, then you’ll find this recipe a piece of cake. Borrowing from the South American ease of prep but big on flavour, this recipe is a winner for a delicious dinner. Chef Tom Walton really does know how to knock out banger after banger.
