  • Okay, that sounds good.
  • Can I recommend some of our garlic bread to go with that?

  • Oh, in that case, yes I will.
  • Can you suggest a wine to go with this?
  • The best match would be something light.
  • Perhaps a Semillon?
  • Or maybe a pinot grigio?
  • A large glass of the Semillon, please.
