Pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of wine and come and join us for an evening of ‘Festive Feasting’ with The Sunday Times wine expert Will Lyons and celebrated Michelin chef and restaurateur Michel Roux Jr. as they take you on a festive food and wine matching journey. This event took place on the evening of Thursday, December 3 2020.

Choosing which wine to serve over the festive season can often be overwhelming so we asked two of the best in the business to share their top tips on food and wine pairing, what they will be serving on the big day and what they will be eating and drinking this Christmas.

‘When I look back to my most enjoyable wine moments they are always in the presence of food,’ says Will, so join me as I discuss our own Christmas traditions, share wine tips and learn from Michel how to get the most pleasure out of food and wine matching at home.

Michel Roux Jr is one of the best-known and most loved French chefs in Britain. He runs the renowned two-Michelin star restaurant Le Gavroche in London, as well as a number of other restaurants, and has presented many popular food programmes on TV.
