You may or may not have gathered but we're pretty obsessed about all things edible - and a few more things too! As we regularly stumble upon some great finds, food or no, and we thought we'd share our favourites with you!
Not sure if it’s the rainy weather that we’ve experienced in London lately but I couldn't resist getting this 1000-piece puzzle which is all about wine!

The company Water & Wines was a lockdown idea created by Yamit, a Stockholm-based sommelier. She turned to puzzles during the pandemic and one day thought that they would be a great medium to teach wine to others. As much as I appreciate wine, my knowledge is rather subpar. As a result, the prospect of mastering Fench wines by doing something enjoyable had me lured in.

The French wine puzzle I chose highlights the country’s key wine-producing regions, main grape varieties, and appellations, as well as grape profiles, aromas, and food pairing tips. Illustrated by hand, it's a beautiful quality design, that is just challenging enough. 

Right, so for the verdict: have I become a wine buff in the French region after completing this jigsaw puzzle? As you may expect, not quite. But I did certainly visually remember better the different wine regions, their locations in the country and nearby main rivers. A good start. right?! I may just have to go back to the puzzle a few times for it to be imprinted into my memory. The best part though is that the process is highly enjoyable!

If you're interested in other regions, there are many more to choose from. You'll find wine puzzles for Italy, Spain, California, South Africa, New Zealand, Germany, Portugal and also puzzles on champagne and whiskey too.
