We're back with our semi-regular stuff we liked - a round up of the things we've been talking about on Twitter, Instagram, facebook and more. This week there's Propercorn, Champagne from Aldi and a really great wine cooler...
First up - we were sent this lovely bottle of Champagne from Aldi - who are getting something of a name for themselves with their wine section. It was in honour of Champagne Day (not that we need an excuse). Their Monsigny Champagne tops many a taste test and is still under £12 in-store.
Next up is more wine - this time from Vinoteca, who have just started producing their own-brand riesling. The the 2014 Rodney and the Horse Clare Valley Riesling is now available in all Vinotecas at £29.45 to have there or £13.95 to take away.
And all that wine and champagne means we get a chance to try out the Vinnebago - from the people behind Corkisicle. This promises to keep white wine at fridge temperature for 24 hours and even mulled wine at... mulled wine temperature - for 12 hours.
We really loved our meal at Sky Gyngell's Spring at Somerset House and were particularly wowed by the room - keep an eye out for our Test Drive in the next Hot Dinners newsletter.

We're big fans of Propercorn (it's often invaluable if you ever put yourself on the 5:2 diet) so we were most than happy to get a whole box of one of their new flavours through the post.
And finally, while it's been over a week since the OFM Awards, it's still worth pointing out that they alway do the most impressive food goodie bag ever seen...
