The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Tokay d'Alsace

Language: French

Description: A grape and wine of the Alsace region. The EU in Brussels decreed that, by March 2007, this wine should relinquish its name which may be confused with Tokay of Hungary, which had just joined the Union. Tokay (in English) is actually known as Tokaji in Hungary but it is still felt that this could be confused. Tocai friulano is in the same predicament. Serious wine drinkers would always know the difference between the Hungarian and the Italian and French wines, and non-serious wine drinkers wouldn’t really be bothered, so this was all rather pointless.


Latin: Vitis vinifera (Linnaeus, 1758)
Ethnicity: French
Most frequent country: France
Most frequent region: Alsace

See places: French food and cuisine, Alsace

See drinks, wines etc: Tokay, Tocai friulano
