Episode 28: Wine Special with Knackered Mother Helen McGinn
WINE TIME! As we all drinking a few more glasses of wine than usual, we thought we would re-release this classic podcast with wine expert Helen McGinn. Helen now features regularly on the BBC's Saturday Kitchen and her book The Knackered Mother's Wine Guide: Because Life's too Short to Drink Bad Wine is now available.
Ever wondered what wine goes with fish fingers? Is it really worth spending a tenner instead of a fiver? And what's the best way to avoid hangovers? We answer all these questions and more with the help of wine expert Helen McGinn.
She tells us all about her award-winning blog and best-selling book, The Knackered Mother's Wine Club. We find out why Ribena is technically more expensive than booze, and discuss Nigella's recipe for wine soup. Plus Helen M reveals what goes on behind the scenes at The Alan Titchmarsh Show (spoiler: Atomic Kitten like a drink.)
We explain why Prosecco is the Helen Thorn of wines and she tells us about her goon bag. Ellie outlines her idea for a breastmilk-themed drinking game and we test Helen M on her wine label knowledge with an inevitably stupid quiz.
