A Gascogne White Enjoyable with Chicken Tikka Masala

For curry lovers a visit to Tewkesbury should include a visit to the excellent Eastern Eye.  This is essentially a takeaway, with a tiny seating area for those wishing to eat in.

The food quality is very good and the portions are outrageously generous.  Doggie bags are inevitable.  Take a look at the leftovers! IMG_0195.JPG (2)

I usually look for new dishes to try, but on this occasion thought I would order a Chicken Tikka Masala and I would say this was one of the best I had tasted from a curry house.  It had a sweetness with a minty, creamy, spicy kick.

We enjoyed the substantial remains of our meal at home the following evening with a bottle of The Society’s Vin de Pays Côtes de Gasgogne 2011.  The wine is a blend of Ugni Blanc and Colombard and was crisp, with citrus, grapefruit and a hint of sharp apples.  It was an enjoyable match with the food.
