Jamie & Thea started Ramekins & Wine, to spread the joy that they get from food and wine, and specifically how they go together. Jamie has worked in the wine trade for 10 years and was also a Masterchef Semi-finalist in 2017. Together they partnered with local wine experts JN Wine, to host a wine and food pairing supper club in the Merchant Hotel. Belfast. The main concept of Ramekins & Wine is that each dish must suit a ramekin, and they must be edible with a teaspoon.
The event consisted of a 7 course dinner, served in their trademark ramekins and paired with 7 of JN Wine’s best offerings, chosen specifically for the way they go with the food. Jamie introduced each course and Jane from JN Wine explained the wine pairing.
