An indulgent side dish or a gourmet dessert, these delicious baked apples are given a divine touch by the addition of a richly aromatic Tokaji wine jelly infused with fragrant black truffles. The delicate sweetness of the wine jelly perfectly complements the natural tartness of the apple and the mineral acidity of the sparkling wine, while the earthy truffle aromas turn this into a truly irresistible treat.

It makes a great accompaniment to roast meat, especially pork and beef, while served with some fresh whipped cream on the side, it is your one-way ticket to gastronomic bliss.

Gourmet Roast Potatoes

Zoltan Kopacsi

Treat yourself to a side-dish fit for a king and turn the humble roast potato into a culinary triumph. The muscatel white wine vinegar aged in traditional oak barrels gives this dish such a flavour boost, that you will never look at roast potatoes in the same way again.

Wine pairing: The elegant minerality of Balassa Winery's Tokaji Furmint 2019 perfectly complements the roasted, salty notes of the potatoes, while the dynamic acidity of the Furmint grapes in both wine and vinegar makes for an irresistible match.
