Oliver’s Taranga cooking series – Episode 4
This month’s recipe for Oliver’s Taranga’s cooking series is Chocolate Raspberry Cake. It was time for another dessert, and this one has me running into the kitchen to check for additional ingredients I might need to bake it immediately.
We’ve matched this delicious treat with our 2021 ‘Chica’ Mencia Rosé – this delicate wine is the perfect match and somehow makes it taste even prettier. Present at your next celebration or gathering of friends.
