Be Inspired Wine Pairing – Persian

Grape Vines - red grapes and roses

In collaboration with Roberto Dessanti of Euro Concepts

Complete your vicarious Persian culinary tour with these wines chosen to complement the menus.

While it hasn’t been legal to sell or consume wine in Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution, archaeological evidence shows it was one of the earliest wine producing regions with a viniculture tradition stretching back thousands of years. The southern city of Shiraz is said to be the ancestral home of the grape of the same name. Persian food marries very well with wine, especially fuller bodied whites and reds with rounded complexity to match the rich, bold favours.

Menu 1 – Borgo Magredo Sauvignon 2019, Grave del Friuli DOC

This sauvignon blanc from northeastern Italy is one of the most food friendly wines I know. It has a lovely floral nose and full, round palate with a trace of herbal notes to match the frittata and enough acid to marry with the barberries in the main course.


Menu 2 – Podere don Catado Negroamaro 2019, Salento IGT

This medium-bodied red is all dark fruit and cigar box, a great match with the earthy spices in the lamb braise. I think I even detect a hint of rose petal echoing that in the advieh spice blend.


Menu 3 – Domain Road Vineyard Defiance Pinot Gris 2022, Central Otago, NZ

This delicious Alsatian-style pinot gris has a touch of residual sweetness to balance the orange sauce and enough body to wrap around the salmon. There’s a trace of bitterness on the finish that I love too.


Menu 4 – Wills Domain Mystic Spring Rosé 2022, Margaret River, WA

Made from free-run shiraz juice, this pale pink rosé smells floral but tastes completely savoury. It has good acid levels to refresh the palate between spoonfuls of the rich soup and to match the tangy yoghurt dip and grilled tomatoes with the lamb kebabs.

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.

Loving Be Inspired! Felt like a kid opening up a Christmas present when the box arrived. Fresh herb pots are a nice touch!

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.
