There’s a Wine and Chips night in Manchester this month

Open Kitchen, the sustainable and zero waste kitchen that is inside the People’s History Museum is reinventing the supper club in a few weeks, with a new wine and chips night, which will see the humble snack accompanied by glasses of low-intervention organic wine.

Following the same principle as other wine tasting events, “Chips and Sips” will see guests taken on a taste journey as they are guided through each wine and learn how it complements Northern classics such as Frazzles, Monster Munch and Wotsits.

The idea was born when the restaurant wanted to combat the “intimidating, snobbish and disconcerting” nature that can accompany certain wine tastings. They said, “What better way to take all the snobbery, and downright class, out of a wine-tasting night, than to pair fine wines with Wotsits, Frazzles, and Monster Munch?”

As always, sustainability will be at the heart of the evening, as co-organizers C&O Wines have selected a range of small independent, family or cooperative wineries. The brand has also selected wineries that emphasize organic or minimal intervention methods, so hopefully that also means a hangover-free morning!

Wine and Chips Night is 100% vegetarian, although customers with specific dietary requirements are also welcome, simply email Open Kitchen, who will then find alternative snacks to suit their needs. join in the evening of dreams.
