Now considering the other half hates red wine…sacriledge I know…more for me though 🙂 He loves this starter. It’s easy peasy and super tasty!

Preheat the oven to 180c

Cut up about 2 Chorizo sausages per person and put them into a shallow glass dish. Pour enough red wine over until the chorizo is submerged. Don’t worry there will be some left over for drinking purposes! Sprinkle with dried thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper and put in the oven for about 20 minutes. About half way through turn the chorizo to make sure it gets fully covered by the wine and evenly cooked. While it’s cooking, cut up a baguette into approximately 1 inch discs and put on a plate to use for dipping into the wine and chorizo oil that is left in the dish after cooking. When it’s ready put something heatproof (the dish is stinking hot!) on the table and put the dish onto the table…arm everyone with forks and dig in. Dip the bread in to soak up the warm wine and chorizo oil………….mmmmmmmmmmmm! Great cold evening starter. I find Merlot is a good choice for this!
