Two beers that couldn’t BE more different. Crisp and fresh, N7’s IPA style works well with a hearty, wholesome winter dish with a bit of bite – maybe a Moroccan-style beef stew or a spicy aubergine curry, for example. And CRUNCH? Throw January caution to the wind and try a chocolate cookie or two. Life’s about balance, right?

Moroccan Beef Tagine

Packed with aromatic spices, this Moroccan beef tagine is also very easy to make – pretty much zero culinary skills required. If you’ve got a slow cooker, this is even easier! Leave out the prunes if they’re not your thing, or add in extra veg – carrots and peppers work well. Serve with couscous on the side or a few green veggies if you fancy. As always, definitely make extra – this somehow tastes better on day three… RECIPE VIA JAMIE OLIVER.

Aubergine & Coconut Curry

A meat-free option that’s hearty, filling and perfect for a winter evening. A great dish to share with the whole family.. RECIPE VIA BBC GOOD FOOD.

Chocolate O Cookies

These. Just wow. An Ottolenghi recipe – just make sure you make EXTRA and DO NOT SHARE these. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a promotion, definitely offer your boss one or two of these. RECIPE VIA MONDOMULIA.
