    Cook’s tip

    Make use of the abundance of berries by trying other combinations such as raspberries, blueberries and blackcurrants.

    Drink recommendation

    There’s a new sparkling red in our range that works wonderfully with summer pudding flavours (and also chocolate!). Lively, fruity and a stunning colour, give this a go! Brown Brothers Cienna Rosso 2010 Victoria, Australia.
