Food writer, cook, and now TV personality Sarah Graham has created a new series that is part food memoir, part lifestyle and part travel. Together with South African wine favourite Drostdy-Hof she brings to life her passion for down-to-earth and delicious food as she travels through southern Africa in her new show, Sarah Graham’s Food Safari.

Here she matches the lusciously aromatic and fruity Drostdy-Hof Adelpracht with her easy-to-make and delicious dessert recipe for nectarine and ginger crumbles. Packed with aromas of dried apricots, peaches and a touch of honey, the off-dry wine also cleverly accentuates the spice of Sarah's more-ish dish.

 Serves 2 | Preparation time 10 minutes | Cooking time 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

    Match the lusciously aromatic and fruity Drostdy-Hof Adelpracht with an easy-to-make and delicious dessert recipe for nectarine and ginger crumbles.
  •  4 ripe nectarines (or plums)
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp sticky brown sugar
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme (or rosemary)
  • 4 to 6 ginger biscuits, crushed roughly in a small plastic bag (use a rolling pin or bottle of wine to crush)
  • Small handful toasted almonds or pecans, roughly chopped, to garnish
  • Whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or mascarpone, to serve

METHOD

  • Heat a griddle pan over medium to high heat.
  • Halve the nectarines, remove the stone, sprinkle a little sugar over the cut sides and add to the griddle pan with the butter and thyme.
  • Cook on the cut side for 2-3 minutes, or until blistered and golden. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  • Divide the ginger biscuit crumbs between serving glasses or ramekins, then layer in the fruit, followed by more crumble and nuts.
  • Serve while warm with a dollop of whipped cream, vanilla ice-cream or mascarpone and a glass of chilled 2015 Drostdy-Hof Adelpracht.
