France is one of the world’s leading wine producers, with grapes being grown in many regions since Roman times. Many of the most well-known grape varieties (including chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and shiraz) have their ancestral home in France; and many wine terms – from terroir to appellation – also originate there. With such a long history of wine production, it’s no surprise that the food and wine of France have evolved to marry so well together. Here are four classic French wines which I hope you’ll enjoy with our four menus.


Riserva R & M Rosé-de-Loire 2021 AOC

This dry rosé comes from Alliance, a co-operative of seven Loire Valley wine producers. It’s made from a blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc and I love the way the pale pink colour plays off against our duck breast and the elegant fruit wraps the braised lettuce and orange sauce together.

Vieux Naudin Rouge 2019 Bordeaux Superieur AOC

The wines of Bordeaux have been among the most coveted throughout history for their depth of flavour and longevity. From St Michel de Fronsac on the right bank of the River Garonne, this mid-weight wine is predominantly merlot, with about 20% cab sav and 10% cab franc, and works a treat with our Axoa from Espelette, just a couple of hours south.

Joseph Cattin Riesling 2020 Alsace AOC

Alsace produces some of France’s most food-friendly white wines and I especially love the rieslings from this region. A natural match for our Alsatian Tarte Flambée, this dry riesling has great minerality and acidity that cuts perfectly through the richness of the burnt butter and pommes dauphinoise in this week’s menu.

François Labet Cuvee Loraine Blanc de Blancs Brut

We had to have some French fizz in this month’s collection. This dry cuvee of classic Champagne grapes, pinot noir and chardonnay, rounded out with lesser known ugni blanc and rolle, is a great balance to the richness of our soufflé and salade Lyonnaise. The bubbles make a refreshing match for the tart Tatin too if there’s a splash left by dessert!

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
