This Week's Food Match
Just thinking ahead to Christmas and the party season. Campbell's of Rutherglen Muscat NV is a fabulous accompaniment to Christmas Pudding or Plum Pudding as some call it, it's perfect with Chocolate puds, especially Chocolate Brownies, Strong Cheeses and really good chilled on it's own! Versatile! But we like Campbell's of Rutherglen's suggestion of serving it with Florentines.
