Food & Drink, Series 2 Episode 5 of 10

Duration: 30 minutes

Scottish chef Tony Singh joins Michel Roux Jr in the studio to prove that, even in winter, it's possible to eat well using seasonally available ingredients. He creates a seasonal feast of venison with haggis ravioli and argues that eating with the seasons is all about picking the best of the month's home-grown ingredients and cooking creatively! Kate Goodman's guide to choosing the right whisky with food helps make the perfect match and there's a lively debate about whether we've got it wrong about food miles.

    What could pair better with Tony Singh's Venison with Haggis better than a whiskey? Here is as election from the UK and abroad:

    • Glen Garioch Founder's Reserve, (£29.20, www.masterofmalt.com)
    • Talisker 10yo,  45.8%, (£33.05, The Whisky Exchange)
    • Yamazaki 12yo (Suntory), 43, (£45.15, The Whisky Exchange)
    And the skinned grape brachetto has a sweetness that goes perfectly with Michel's preserved fruit tart. Try this one:

    • Contero Brachetto D’Acqui, (£9.95, Wine Society)
