With the warm weather all but here, it’s time to pack away the slow cooker and dust off the BBQ.

Take a peek at these food and wine pairings to spark some inspiration for the year’s festivities that await.

Neil Perry’s  Grilled Atlantic Salmon with a cucumber and fresh herb salsa  is best paired with a crisp and elegant Sauvignon Blanc.

Linguine with prawns, chilli and garlic is perfectly matched with a Riesling or a Pinot Gris. Justine Schofield from Everday Gourmet has just the recipe.  

Chicken with Haloumi and Honey, a recipe by Donna Hay, is a light dish perfect for the warmer weather.  Enjoy it with a rich citrus flavoured Chardonnay.

Jamie Oliver’s Spaghetti puttanesca is perfect served with a medium to full-bodied Italian Red  or an inexpensive Portuguse Red.
