Mid-Week Meals: Victoria Moore’s Hot Crab Pots

We can all agree that cooking mid-week meals can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. And that occasionally (most of the time) those meals would taste a whole lot better with a glass of wine.

We’ve teamed up with some inspiring chefs to bring you simple, easy and delicious recipes, like these Hot Crab Pots from award-winning wine writer Victoria Moore.

An olden but golden dish – always pleasing if there are crunchy little bits of shell in the creamy, eggy, hot, crabby pot. It is blissful with Chardonnay.

Victoria Moore’s Hot Crab Pots


4 eggs, beaten

400ml double cream

200g brown and white crab meat

100g gruyère, grated


2 tbs chopped chives



Preheat the oven to 180c.

Mix the eggs, cream, crab and cheese together.

Season to taste and divide between six buttered ramekin dishes.

Cook for around 15 minutes until only just set.

Spinkle with chives.

Serve with really good bread, toasted, and a glass of Corney & Barrow Own Label White Burgundy.

Her latest book The Wine Dine Dictionary presents an A-Z of good food and good wine together for happy eating and drinking. With her stylised wit and experience, Moore pulls on her own experience to not only suggest some delicious pairings, but to inform and explain why different food and wine combinations work, or don’t. The book is separated into two parts: one listing food with suggestions of wine, and the other listing wine with a suggestion of food. So whether you’re hosting a dinner party, asked to bring a bottle, or need some to liven up a mid-week meal, you’ll find your perfect pairing. A tasty education guaranteed. The Wine Dine Dictionary is available now from Granta Books.
