The apple vs the grape

Apple vs grapes

Cider takes on wine for the second time, with you, the diners deciding its fate.

18 months ago – was it really that long? – Mitch Adams and I brought you the world’s first Cider vs Wine food matching tournament, at his then pub, The Thatchers Arms near Colchester. A sell-out, with cracking examples from both camps – read more about it here – it’s taken until now for the return match.

And now that Mitch is running The Bull in north London, a wonderful foodie, friendly pub in Highgate, it’s taking place in his cosy rooms upstairs.

Mitch is introducing the ciders – well he has become a bit of a national expert – and Steve Parsons from innovative vintners Genesis is in charge of the wines.

Throw in five courses of tasty food from Dave Hook, The Bull’s talented chef, and you can see why this is a must for the diary.
