What We Just Said
Wine and Beans – Magical?
Every now and then I decide to get all cheffy and do great stuff. This Monday night, Veterans Day (Ooorah), was one of those days.
Pho and Pinot Noir – My Opinion. As Always.
This is the time of year when the words “hot soup” can cause a smiling physical reaction. Even in Las Vegas it’s very cold (25°F when I left for work this morning), and the vision of curling up with a blanket and a bowl of hot soup is oh so comforting.
Nailed It! My Finals Rock!
Jocularity aside, I was surprised at what I already knew, what I learned, and how I applied it in the final. I rock, frankly. And so I decided to celebrate.
Managed Heat – Building a Chili for Wine
The recipe for basic chili is pretty simple: Meat, beans, celery, onions, peppers, garlic, tomato of some sort, seasonings such as cumin and chili powder, and salt and pepper. That’s a good, easy-to-make chili, but it’s not “Challenge” chili. It’s sitting-in-front-of-the-TV-with-a-beer chili.
Honing Your Wine Chops with Summer Fruits
I’ve also discovered that dried pink grapefruit peel (recipe experiment) has the fragrance of “cat pee” which I find so appealing (no pun intended) in Sauv Blanc.
