Mulled Wine

food painting for the vegetarian cookbook by Fiona Morgan
Warming. Spiced. Moreish. Easy.


Food painting artwork

30 x 24cm acrylic and pen on cotton. Heavily influenced by Medieval illuminated manuscripts which seemed rather appropriate for such an ancient and traditional winter potation.

By the way, all the food painting artwork is available to own in the Official Art Store.


The meatless meals recipe

What better way to kick off the season of winter but with the happy warm glow of a mug or two of mulled wine? This recipe was collected and refined during my Scottish years but actually reminds me of late December afternoon at work in London when the whole office would get mulled wine ingredients together and the pot would brew away ready for knock off time. 

2 bottles red wine (1.5 L)
1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
5-7cm cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
4 tablespoons sugar
12 cloves
1/2 L orange juice or more to taste

Put all the ingredients in a pot and heat gently for at least an hour.  Do not simmer or boil.
