TIM ATKIN MW has chosen to open up his heart to the nation and admit to a shameful secret. 'There is no denying the truth any longer: I am addicted to Sherry.' He's well aware of its 'bus pass image' and doesn't deny that old people are fans: 'The fastest way to get my grandmother to nod off was to slip her a glass of cream Sherry.' But this hasn't managed to deter him: 'There's always a bottle of Fino in the fridge. When I'm at home, I drink a glass of Sherry most evenings.' For those who would like an introduction, Atkin recommends Solera Jerezana Fino Puerto (5.35; Waitrose) and Lustau Very Rare Old Oloroso, Emperatriz Eugenia (15.89; D Byrne, Green and Blue, Noel Young).
