“ I teach Asian inspired cooking; healthy, vibrant and easy to create at home. My philosophy is the five tastes hot, sweet, salty, sour and umami combined in your dishes to give perfection in your mouth and the right wine will certainly complete it.

Blue Nun Rivaner Riesling is balanced, off dry with aromatic notes of honey and tropical fruit. This newer, more sophisticated wine is the perfect companion to my Modern Asian cooking complementing its heady spices and herbs from India, Thailand and China.

 I have written this series of every day and delicious Modern Asian recipes for you to create at home. Try them, experiment with the flavours. Feed your family and impress your friends each dish is perfect to serve with a chilled Rivaner Riesling. “

Vietnamese Pho Style Soup Chicken Noodle Soup

Everyone should have a killer chicken soup recipe in their repertoire. This is a flavour packed, nutrition dense soup which makes a great starter or can be a quick and easy week day main course. Pho is Vietnamese for noodle which you can leave out if preferred.   I have added a splash of Rivaner Riesling to give the broth an added kick.

Korean Sizzling Beef

Angela says,

“A crowd pleaser, this recipe is based on bulgogi, a classic Korean dish of sliced beef that’s marinated in soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic, then grilled. In this version I have added a splash of Rivaner Riesling into the marinade. Serve with my favourite Asian style slaw. For a party I suggest serving the beef on a platter of steamed basmati rice topped with finely chopped spring onions.”

Serves 4


  • 500g thinly sliced rib-eye or sirloin steak. Partially freezing the beef helps with cutting clean slices.
  • 50ml light soy sauce
  • 50ml Rivaner Riesling
  • 2 tbspn white sugar
  • 1 tbspn sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tspn ginger, finely minced
  • 1 tbspn sesame seeds
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 4 spring onions finely sliced
  • 500g cooked rice
  1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a medium bowl except beef and onions.
  2. When most of the sugar has dissolved, add beef and onion slices to the bowl and massage the marinade with your hands into each slice of beef. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. To pan fry, place a few slices of beef in single layers and completely flat on a hot oiled frying pan and fry each side until cooked. Some people prefer to cook the bulgogi until some of the edges have turned dark brown and crispy.
  4. Toss the spring onions with the cooked rice to serve with beef.

White wine Zabayon with lychee and berries.

Angela says


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 150ml Blue Nun Rivaner Riesling wine
  • 1 tin lychees
  • Berries of your choice
  • Cinnanon Powder (optional)

“A simple yet very impressive dessert inspired by a lunch at the world famous Ivy restaurant in London.    This pudding is sure to wow dinner party guests, traditionally made with Marsala,  I have switched it for the Rivaner Riesling .   The zabayon custard takes a little time to prepare however is very impressive when served with the fruit straight at the table. Adding a pinch of cinnamon to the fruit gives a wonderful warmth and aroma to this dessert.”

Serves 4

  1. In a large, heatproof bowl, whisk together the wine and sugar. Then whisk in the egg yolks.
  2. Set to bowl over a pan of gently boiling water (the bottom of the bowl shouldn’t touch the water) and whisk vigorously until the mixture becomes frothy and stiff.
  3. The zabayon is ready when the mixture is thick and holds its shape when you lift the whisk and let some of the mixture drop back into the bowl.
  4. Pile the berries and their juices into a glass and top each with warm zabayon. You can sprinkle them with cinnamon powder, if desired.
