Welcome to one4thetable.com everyone!
Autumn is here… Hurrah! Which means although the summer heat may be a distant memory, as we watch the leaves change colour, game season is upon us.
Which reminds me to thank Jamie, Jean-Seb and the team at Adelina Yard for asking me to host my “Autumn Delights” evening at a couple of weeks ago. The menu was stunning and I found some great wines to share with everyone who attended, including Dunleavy Vineyards first ever fizz. It’s a delight and you’ll be able to buy it soon. And don’t forget to check out co-owner and chef Olivia on Great British Menu this week.
I’m also going to be hosting a Northern Italian wine evening at No Man’s Grace on 25th October, so book in if you can. John Watson’s menu is going to be divine! I’ve just got to narrow down what sips we will have with it.
And if you’d like some inspiration for food and drink to get you through the autumn, click on the link below to have a look at my latest article in Crumbs magazine where Romy Gill shares an amazing prawn recipe with some Welsh wines that I featured in this months Abergavenny Food Festival.

All this excitement aside, I often get asked; where does the phrase ‘One for the table’ come from? It’s is an expression that developed from sitting round the dinner table with friends at many restaurants around the world that I’ve been lucky enough to dine at. Faced with amazing menus, when we felt we couldn’t order any more but our inquisitive nature wouldn’t let us put the menu down, we’d say ‘let’s order one for the table’. That way we could order all (well most) of the items we wanted to try. Some might say it’s greedy, but I see it as a healthy fascination in food and drink….. And to be honest, I don’t see that fascination changing anytime soon!
