Our resident chef Cicero shares his secrets on how to cook the perfect curry in a hurry. The complex flavours of curries are governed by just three things: onion, ginger and garlic done just right; and something to give it body. If you’re wondering which wine to pair, we suggest trying German, Austrian, Australian and New Zealand rieslings to complement that powerful sauce.
