JJ Goodman, winner of BBCs The Restaurant with Raymond Blanc has joined forces with The Dormen Food Company to create cocktails perfectly matched with the Dormen range.
For party enthusiasts wanting to impress their guests, JJ says: Christmas is a time when party throwers stock up to cater for even the most exotic request, but adding good quality nibbles like Dormen snacks can make all the difference. Its all about taking guests on a journey of flavour and taste. Getting the right snack and drink match is simple. For me it starts with good quality ingredients and a few basic rules. Complement and contrast flavours, salty with sour can set your taste buds on fire, and experiment and challenge your guests to try something new and unconventional.
