As a special treat for Cheese and Biscuits readers, wine experts Bibendum have very generously donated two free tickets to their Bordeaux tasting, on the 22nd April at Lord's Cricket Ground in St. John's Wood. The tickets are worth £50 and the event includes tasting of some pretty serious wines such as Chateau D'Yquem and Montrose, so it's well worth your while having a punt.
In order to inject some fun into proceedings, I am going to give the prize to the person who leaves the funniest and/or punniest comment on my review of Testi, the Ocakbasi grill in Stoke Newington. Have as many goes as you want, but make sure you watch this space around 15th April, when I'll be announcing the winner. I don't want all your hard work going to waste.
Please also bear in mind that the event is held from 4pm-8pm so those of you who have a day job may want to leave work an hour or two early to make the most of it. But I can't think of a better excuse to bunk off a Wednesday afternoon than to go and taste some fine vintage wines in North London.
