I love Chablis and don't need an excuse to open a bottle but for a lot of people it is a more celebration wine. I suggest you get the bottles in the chiller and get set to enjoy with a range of summer foods, salads and BBQs! Chablis is a very special Chardonnay from the northern part of the Burgundy wine region in France.
The Chablis I was sent is from Laroche Wines, crisp, fresh with notes of apple and pear and is available from Majestic Wines at a RRP of £14.99. The bottle of Petit Chablis is a wine with loads of freshness and elegance, 100% Chardonnay and unoaked. Also available from Majestic Wines at a RRP £12.99.
The next step is to layer the aubergine slices and tomato sauce in a loaf or square pan (I used the new loose bottom square baking pan from the new James Martin Baker's Dozen collection) and sprinkled the top with cheese.
Depending on what I have in the fridge it could be parmesan or cheddar or a mixture of both.
Into a hot oven (180-190C) for about 45 minutes and serve with plain pasta and/or a seasonal salad.
Thanks to Chablis wines for my two bottles. I was not paid to write this post and all opinions and photos are my own.
